Wow, we had a really bad day traveling because of horrible weather everywhere. Arrived in Milwaukee at 1am, way too late to drive to Appleton or beg for a ride. We had booked a room at the Clarion earlier that evening, got one of the last ones. Very wise decision. Overall great experience. They picked us up 5 minutes after... More

Close to the airport and an easy drive into the city. About 12 min from the Marquette University campus. Great pool, laundry facilities, and if you sign up for the Choice Rewards program (free!), you get a complementary hot breakfast- limited menu, but varied and delicious. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.

We recently booked the Clarion through our travel agent so we could utilize their Park and Fly services. We had to be at the airport for 4:30 am prior to an international flight and thought this would be a great option. Let me just say, it was a clean hotel with comfortable accommodations. The hotel restaurant, Cork 'n Cleaver was... More

Older building, kept up very nice. My room (161) had a little bit of a musty (damp) smell, not unbearable, or overwhelming. The room was very clean, and had very nice updated amenities. The flat screen TV was a nice size. It had a refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, etc. The staff was extremely friendly, from the front desk to the... More

Hotel restaurants occasionally get a bad rap or get overlooked when looking to go out to dinner....but this one doesn't! I provided a Trip Advisor comment for their Cork N' Cleaver restaurant, but wanted to do the same here, because in my travels to other cities, you sometimes don't have to leave the hotel to get a great meal.

The furnishings were very nice and the bed was comfortable. The location was ideal for my very early a.m. flight. There is a bar, restaurant and gym at this hotel (I didn't visit any of them.) Parking at this hotel is a big problem. The parking spots near the lobby are very limited and many of them are occupied by... More

This hotel will always have it's rooms filled due to the proximity to the airport, so while nothing I say will actually make a difference maybe I can deter one or two folks from trusting this property with their business.
