“Great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I'm thankful that I purchased a Groupon for Park and Jet, otherwise I would have never learned of this parking gem near the Philadelphia Airport. It was conveniently located. The van drivers and dispatcher were friendly, informative, punctual and helpful. I'll definitely park here again

I picked this hotel because it was close to an event I was attending. The staff was very friendly and accommodating during my visit from the time I checked in. The hotel lobby has a warm and cozy feel with the two waterfalls on the wall. The food was and service in the restaurant great. My hotel room was very nice,well stocked with all the amenities and the room was very clean. This hotel is a great choice if you want great service and a clean room. This hotel has exceeded my expectations by far.

Great service from the time I dropped off the car until I returned to pick up the car. I do not have anything else to say to make up the 200 character minimum. I will not review anything else since you require 200 characters. djjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjl

I was at this hotel for a four-day conference. I came in contact with many staff as I was involved in setting up multiple rooms over the four days. The set-up staff were uniformly extremely courteous, solicitous, understanding and accommodating to our various needs. The front desk staff was uniformly helpful. The room was nice/average -- what one would expect from a Marriott or other major chain. The food was very good -- the Phily cheesesteak sandwich was outstanding, and the amount of food for our group buffets was much more than we required. The free airport small bus service was adequate -- not the fastest but acceptable.

Did NOT stay at the Clarion. We used the Park and Jet lot for 7 days while on vacation. It was a very easy process, no problems at all. We didn't have to wait for transportation to or from the airport. The drivers were very friendly. And we got a great deal from Groupon!

Returned to the area for a visit after relocating and needed a hotel that was accessible from both the suburbs and NJ. This was a great spot. Room was clean, roomy, and comfortable. We stayed for three days and the housekeeping was excellent as was the information provided by front desk staff. We visited the restaurant on two separate occasions with just slightly different experiences. Food was excellent on both visits and the drink specials were outstanding. Service was a bit slow on one night, but completely polite and friendly. This is definitely a property would stay in again!

All night long two nights in a row we had loud bass music reverberating through our room. I complained twice on the second night and still it continued. Completely sleepless night twice in a row. Very disappointing.

Upgrades in the room were cheap. New vanities but the other furnishings were old tarnished and dirty looking.

Ontop of the extremely limited parking this is not a place I would choose again.

Dear Crystalclear906,

Thank you for choosing the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center - Philadelphia Airport for your recent stay. We greatly appreciate all of your feedback and comments. I would like to apologize for the negative experience that you endured at our hotel and can assure you that is not a typical guest experience. During your stay we did have a rather large convention in the hotel and our front desk should have put your room on the opposite side of the ballroom.

With so many choices here at the Philadelphia Airport, we say "Thank you for your business" and I invite you to contact me the next time you are visiting the Philadelphia area and I will be glad to assist you personally! We hope you will give us another opportunity...
