We arrived at the Clarion in Renton at approximately 12:30am after a long, sleepless and delayed flight from the East Coast. We had arrived so late that the car rental company had closed. Thank goodness the hotel had a shuttle. The shuttle driver was very nice and patient while I installed our son's car seat for the 20 minute ride from the airport. We had originally reserved this room with Choice Hotels points earned from previous stays with this chain. However, upon check-in the desk clerk told me that the Day Manager told him we didnt have enough points. It was frustrating, but finally a call to Choice Hotels customer service set it right. The next morning, the day manager was apologetic and provided confirmation of our free stay.
The room itself was nice, extremely clean and spacious, even with a portable crib set-up in the corner. We were pleased to see a large sink outside of the bathroom with plenty of counter space to wash bottles ! A fridge in the room was also a plus ! The room was also suprisingly quite, despite being right near a major highway.
Breakfast the next morning was nice, though I didnt get to enjoy it, as I had to take the shuttle back to the airport to pick up our rental car !!
Overall a nice, clean place to crash when you need to be near Sea-Tac !! Just be careful at check-in !!
