Only used park and jet... Got great groupon rate. Secured parking a shuttle follows you while you park and picks you up. Short ride to airport. Shuttle then picks you up upon return...easy checkout. They even give you a little business card with your parking zone as a reminder. Will do again for sure!!!!!!!

I have stayed in several hotels near the airport and by far the Clarion has been what I consider to be the best. Great restaurant, Clean updated room. Wonderful front desk staff that makes my first impression of the place top notch. Transportation to and from the airport was also important to me and was the best. I will stay... More

We stayed here 5 nights while in town for a college hockey tournament. My wife is a real stickler for cleanliness, and she was satisfied. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout our visit. They have convention facilities, so it's important to understand this when booking across a weekend. Standard rooms do not have refrigerator or microwave but you can book... More

This is my second review of this hotel. I stayed at this hotel a year ago and wasn't satisfied. I gave it a poor review. We decided to give it another try mainly because it fit our needs (overnight stay plus two weeks of parking). Our experience this visit was excellent. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The television... More

First off, I like this Clarion Hotel in Essington PA. I've stayed here before for the yearly Amazicon convention and it was great. And its convenient and nicely priced.Every room has a balcony, and the staff are helpful. However, this stay was marred by a few problems - none of which were bad on their own, but when combined they... More

If you need to park your car for a trip, Park & Jet is the company you should use. The service and convenience is far superior than parking your car right at the airport. It is conveniently located. They pick you up at your car, put your luggage in the van, and take you to the airport. When you arrive... More

Despite some of the bad reviews we decided to try this hotel and were not disappinted. Everything was delightful starting with the pleasant woman at the front desk. Oh and every time I travel I request the "highest room possible" and this is the FIRST time I actually got the highest floor possible! Good job Clarion. I travel several times... More

The hotel is OK. Staff was nice, rooms were OK, and the restaurant was passable. However.... The parking package is a complete farce. Don't do it. On arrival from Atlanta, we waited at the assigned location only to see one of their shuttle vans zoom right past us. When this happened a second time, I called. 45 minutes and many... More

If you can stay somewhere else (ANYWHERE ELSE)......do it. Heat a/c in rooms is either on or off, it does not cycle so room is either like an over or a fridge. Beds are uncomfortable in the extreme. Loud noises from other guests in the late hours made sleep almost impossible. Breakfast not included and food way too pricey to... More

This is an older, dated hotel located in Essington, PA; Essington is a smallish "town"/borough not far from the airport, and has a much "safer" feel than downtown Philly. This Clarion hotel is not bad for the price point. We utilized this hotel for the park/fly option. (StayParkTravel.com) The hotel allowed us to park our BMW right up front near... More
