The Clarion is a comfortable hotel to use as a base camp. Bit of a walk to downtown but not really bad. DO NOT COUNT ON SHUTTLE SERVICE!!!! We were told there was free shuttle service from airport but when we called after 1:00AM arrival we were told it would be more than 35 minutes before the shuttle could come... More

We stayed at the Clarion Suites Downtown on both sides of our 11 daytrip to Alaska. We found the room clean and comfortable and the hotel staff accommodating.. Not a really fancy place, but provided the basics very nicely, including a continental breakfast and timely shuttle to the train station and airport. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Stayed for a night on the way to our road trip in Alaska. The rooms are comfortable, breakfast was fine, would have appreciated if there was more space in the dinning room. It was little cramped but overall it was nice experience.

Our tour booked us here for 2 nights. It was a great room with a separate sitting room. The room was clean. The location was an easy walk downtown. Benihana is in the parking lot. The moose sign is not a joke.

But I've sure stayed in a lot better. This is a tourist-class hotel that was booked by our travel agent, probably because she gets a nice commission from the property. It's crowded with tour bus groups (go to breakfast really early or really late to avoid them), is not located right downtown and is noisy (including the A/C which we... More

My family has stayed here twice now and the front desk was not helpful for us at all on both occasions. We will not be staying here again. The female manager seemed to be the only one who knows the job well and has a good attitude. It has been very disappointing. The breakfast was okay but make sure to... More

Pleasant enough hotel with a small sitting room with fridge and sofa. We requested two beds which were there and the wireless internet was an added bonus. After a restful nights sleep we went downstairs for a quick included breakfast prior boarding the bus to our train to Denali. There must have been many ships boarding that day as the... More

We stayed in the Clarion as part of a Denali trip. Nice hotel, if a bit dated. Good breakfast served. BUT - My oh my we had the noisiest air conditioning we have ever encountered. Although it was hot, we turned it off, but could still hear the racket coming from A/Cs on either side of us. We had to... More

We stayed here 1 night before a Denali National Park tour. The rooms were large and comfortable. The window treatments did a nice job of darkening the room--which is important when the sun never sets in June. The breakfast was well stocked and tasty. It was a short 3 or 4 block walk to downtown attractions. I would stay here... More
