Our daughter travels for a club volleyball team. I was the "travel coordinator" for the team and would pick our hotel ahead of time. This was the only time the entire team looked at me like I was crazy. Bad part of town, staff couldn't care at all about you - rooms were horrible. My daughter thought the hotel was haunted.....run down. I actually moved my car under a street light to be safe....that is how unsafe I felt the area was.

We (family of four) stayed one night on our way north. The room was spotless, accommodations though not new were clean. The lobby and dining area was very roomy and peaceful. Breakfast was outstanding - wide variety for any taste, fresh, excellently prepared, and delicious. All personnel were very friendly and professional. Only negative for the stay was the lack of internet access in the rooms. Staff were aware of some problems with their wireless system... their suggestion that we sit in the lobby to access the hotel's network helped. If we're ever in Colorado Springs again, this Clarion will be the first hotel we check with for reservations.

Dear Ms. Castle,

Last November the attorney I work for, her seeing-eye dog and I stayed in your hotel. This was our second stay, and the only place we stay in Colorado Springs. We have consistently found the cleanliness of the building, the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food to be relaxing and inviting. As we were there on serious business, it was nice to feel that touch of home.

You have made repeat customers out of us and I wanted to extend my appreciation to you and your staff. Clarion Hotels is lucky to have you on their team.

We’ll see you in February, on our next visit to the Colorado Springs area. Until then, take care, and happy New Year.

Sincerely,

Nakca Bagn-Ellison

This is a great value with nice amenities such as Free Wi-Fi and complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport. The rooms are large, comfortable, and clean. The complimentary breakfast buffet is one of the nicest and largest that I've seen offered for free by any hotel. All of the employees that I spoke with were extremely friendly, helpful, and accomodating. There is a Denny's located directly across the street that is open 24 hours making any other meals very convenient and affordable. The only thing I really missed is that the hotel is in the process of renovating their lounge and therefore the lounge was closed. This was a little disappointing and is the only thing that would have made my stay with them more complete. However, I will be returning again in the near future and I intend to stay here again. I hope by then the lounge is completed. This hotel is a great place to stay and a great value!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel December 28, 2007, and the amenities met our expectations. We have stayed at this hotel on one or two previous occasions and we have never been disappointed. We would hope to be able to stay here again if we are ever in the area. We appreciate the fact the Clarion Hotel Downtown is continually trying to improve customer relations because this makes it a friendly, pleasant stay for the customers and also the hotel. We wish the Clarion Hotel Downtown success in their future endeavors.

I've stayed at this hotel for years. Although they are remodeling, they have a stunning great breakfast buffet. I plan to stay there many more times in this upcoming year, and it will only get better with its manager's complimentary meetings, reopening of restaurant, and reopening of lounge. The rooms and beds are very comfortable.
