“Good stopover location...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This Clarion is a good choice in Winnipeg. The rooms are clean and well appointed. There is a restaurant on the site and a nice waterpark style pool for the family. The front desk is very friendly and able to make quick decisions to keep guests happy (I needed a room on a higher floor). As an added bonus, the hotel is right accross the street from a shopping mall.

My only concern was with noise. I was on a floor with a family that was not supervising their children. The kids were out in the hall long past any bedtime and any noise they made did flow into the room (they were not being inappropriate, just walking and talking). The individual I was traveling with also had a room next door with people yelling until early in the morning hours. So I think that the soundproofing in this hotel may not be up to modern standards.

Overall, a fine stay with some small problems that were not entirely in the control of the hotel.

Room Tip: There are smoking rooms. So if you are a non-smoker you will need to request a non-smoking floor.

We stayed at the Clarion for a couple of nights during our kids spring break. It was an amazing stay! The rooms were clean, the hotel was quiet, it is in a great location. ALL of the staff were friendly and helpful. The water-park in the hotel is incredible and our kids had a load of fun! The room was spacious and very comfortable. My only regret was that we did not use the Spa! Next time for sure. If you are looking for a great place to stay the Clarion is a fantastic hotel. We will absolutely stay there again! Our kids are already asking to go back! The value for the price paid was absolutely on track.

Booked for a Girl's Night Out including an afternoon at the spa. Our room keys didn't work, after returning to the clerk she stated that it was very odd and asked if I'd kept the keys near my cell phone all afternoon. I reminded her my bags were waiting in the hallway upstairs as I just checked in 5 minutes ago. The room was nice, clean and offered a great place for our gathering. We wished we could have worn our robes from the spa up to our room, dressing damaged our nails. I asking at the time of booking if a shuttle would be available to take us to the MTS Centre, I was told no. While waiting for our cabs we spoke with other guests who proved this to be untrue. We did awake to a vacuum at 8:15 am, no other noises disrupted us.

I have stayed in the Clarion numerous times there was never any issues at all. Very polite staff, very lovely rooms and a great location.The room selections vary on size however always suitable to your taste. Comfortable beds, warm blankets make it a great nights stay.

I recently spent a week-end at The Clarion Hotel in Winnipeg with my husband and so enjoyed our stay. Everyone was very friendly. The room was larger than we expected, clean and quiet. The pool area with a waterslide is quite nice. Next time we will use the Spa. The Pancake House attached and the Mall so close was a bonus.

This hotel was recommended to us by a friend who had stayed here previously. He was impressed by his stay so we decided to give it a try. Upon check-in we were greeted by the friendly staff at the front desk. We were in town for a night and stayed in a business suite. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable (and great wifi signal). The attached parkade was very convenient. We were able to park our vehicle overnight at no extra charge. I should mention there were several handicap accessible parking stalls which was very thoughtful. They have a very nice pool and spa facility with an attached mineral pool, jacuzzi and sauna. In the evening we headed down to the lobby lounge for a few drinks. We met Nahom the bartender, he was extremely polite and helpful in suggesting places to go on a Saturday night in Winnipeg. Everything is conveniently close to the hotel. Next to a major shopping centre and minutes from downtown and the airport. We would like to thank all the helpful staff at the Clarion who made our stay enjoyable. Looking forward to staying here again! Overall experience was fantastic!

If you want a consistently nice stay and great location you can,t beat the Clarion. You will pay a few dollars more each night, but especially if you don,t have a vehicle it is so close to everything. Steps away from a great mall. Other shopping and dining areas all around. Easy to hop a bus to travel up and down Portage Ave. The shuttle can be arranged for medical trips.

Bedding is good. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Staff are helpful. Nice pool and water slide. Pancake house restaurant attached.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, theme rooms are available
