We just recently stayed and had 3 rooms booked for 3 nights and it was really nice. The buffet in the morning was really good and it was included with the rooms which was amazing. The Housekeeping staff were really nice and do a great job of upkeep. I really want to thank Lou ann who checked us in. She... More

When I arrived at 4:15 on a Thursday, my room was not ready. The "quiet" room I requested turned out to be directly across from the elevator, so I accepted a lower category room, which I also had to wait for. The complimentary coffee was empty. The room was poorly laid out. When I turned on the hot water tap... More

Kayla, the general manager was so gracious, I couldn't believe it. She took my name and said she would call me if any rooms became available and she did and there were rooms and it was my birthday and she left a note for a free drink with a happy birthday message on it. She went so above and beyond,... More

Our second time staying and we were reasonably pleased. I had booked in March for July. A few weeks before I called to confirm. A good thing too, as the date had been mistakenly booked for February. (People book a year ahead?) Melissa was very friendly and helpful and rebooked us, but was not able to match the rate we... More

Kala Jones could not have been more helpful to me as we tried to plan a trip on a very busy weekend in Federal Way. Coming for the huge Western Zone swim meet, most local hotels that I called were booked and the service I received was less than stellar. Kala managed to find us a room at the Clarion... More

Having pre-booked, I was surprised when the receptionist offered me an incorrect rate. turned out that she was still a trainee and obviously didn't know how to use the... More

The lobby is nicely done and very attractive with seating and high end decor. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The service was great. The continental breakfast was very good. Its not the same every day. One day they had french toast, scrambled eggs and bacon plus all the other stuff and the next day it was pancakes, sausage,... More

Excellent service with comfortable, quiet and clean rooms. The staff was so helpful, especially the hotel's GM. Even the breakfast was good for the buffet style! It was a good value and I would go back in a heart beat.

Stayed here for 4 nights for a swim competition for my daughter. The front entrance is a bit rundown looking but it is nice inside. We liked the clean large room. I am very sensitive to smoke and I didn't smell anything. I liked the cookies and ice water offered each day. Breakfast had a good selection. If anything, it... More
