Arrived later than planned due to airline issues. However, with the shuttle pickup, the speedy check in and the hotel bar and TV for sport's watching, it was wonderful. The bar food from the restaurant was better than I expected after a long day. Will stay there again next time in Milwaukee as it fit my needs rather well.

I am a Captain for American Airlines and have stayed in countless hotels. The staff here is exceptionally warm, and the driver who picked the crew up at the airport tried his best to call each of us by our names. NEVER, in 25 years has that happened before. The rooms are adequate. Generous portions of coffee, refrigerator I use... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of the park and fly program for our recent trip to Orlando. When we arrived, we were greeted and checked in promptly and given coupons for dinner at the onsite restaurant. We chose to go elsewhere for dinner but the coupons were nice had we decided to eat onsite. The hotel is a... More

We were disappointed by this property. The first thing we noticed as we walked to our room was the musty/moldy smell. It does not look like the carpeting or decor has been updated since the 1980's. On the upside the two airport shuttle drivers we had were extremely pleasant. The Cork and Cleaver restaurant was quiet and with a voucher... More

I am not quite sure what hallways you are talking about. Our entire hotel has just completed renovating all of the hallways with new wallpaper, carpeting, and lighting fixtures throughout. We are quite happy with the new look of the hallways throughtout the entire facility. More

The folks who assisted us with our wedding in June 2014 were terrific! They answered all our questions as we planned our special day, and even anticipated some things we might not have thought of! Although we didn't do anything out of the ordinary, we never felt as though we were less important, especially since there was a larger wedding... More

This hotel was old, dingy and the air conditioner was incredibly loud in our room. We also killed a few bugs the 2 nights we stayed. For under $100 per night, it wasn't terrible, but I probably wouldn't stay here again. Some positives included the friendly service, the bathroom was pretty good and we didn't hear any noise from airplanes... More

Booked through Priceline for $70/night + tax for 2 nights for Irishfest. Located literally walking distance to the main terminal of the airport (10 minutes to downtown/Summerfest grounds) the room was quiet (room 106) and clean and included a fridge, microwave, and free wifi. The staff was very friendly and efficient at check in. The bed was okay for comfort... More

I have stayed at the Clarion several times and was happy. However recently I traveled with my mother, who has two hip replacements, a defibrillator, and congestive heart failure. She walks very slowly with a cane and must stop to rest because of breathing problems. If there is much walking planned, I take her wheelchair with us. When I made... More

Thank you for your comments. The problem, we have been to capacity lately at our hotel. If someone books the reservation in advance, we can put a note on the reservation for your request, however that request is not guaranteed. Unfortunately, we can not preassign their room. When the day of arrival comes we can already be booked on the... More

This was our fist time at the Clarion and won't be our last. We used the hotel for a park & fly and have never had such a curtious staff.
