“Great place with a great staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2011

Great place to stay, the service was excellent. We arrived very late and received a warm welcome from the man at the desk. The next morning the woman in charge of the breakfast room was very pleasant and helpful, she needs a reward for her very good service. The breakfast room itself was very pleasant place, large with lots of light from the windows. The rooms were larger than a usual hotel room in this price range. We were on our way to a funeral and this hotel made our trip the best it could be under the circumstances.

Traveling for Business I have stayed in my share of hotel rooms. This by far, was one of the best experiences and comfort I have had. The room layout was great, the bed was so comfortable, the choice of pillows was wonderful, the staff was very friendly, efficient and helpful, and the continental breakfast was amazing. That and the location was perfect. Our conference was in the Alliant Energy Center and they have a walk-way right to it. Kudos to the staff at the Clarion Suites Central!!

Room Tip: The single King room was great!!!!

This is a great hotel if you attending or working an event at the Alliant Center as the hotel and center are connected by a enclosed walkway. If you are part of the event, you will most likely get a group rate on the room, but you will not get Choice Hotel points. Regular room rates are a bit high for its location if you you are not there for an event. No convince stores, long way from downtown or shopping at East or West Town, long way from the UW campus, and there are no restruauants close by. Breakfast at the hotel is one of the best "included with your room" breakfast I have ever had - fresh, hot, great assortment, and a nice space to eat in. Have stayed here for several years for a couple of events - very comfotable and relaxing.

Room Tip: Book early if you are involved with an event - th.

Check in went very well. They had warm chocolate chip cookies at the desk. They have a happy hour with snacks, wine and beer. The breakfast was super. Service was great. Anytime we had a question for them they answered it and most times went further with more information. They have a shuttle bus which we used and they got us to where we wanted to be and we called and they picked us up promptly. Everyone was very friendly from the cleaners , to the bus drivers to the front desk. The room was clean and we love the suite with the separate bedroom. Our floor was very quiet. It is right next to the Allian tenergy center so if you are doing anything around there you can walk and not worry about paying for parking. It isn't more than ten minutes from campus.

I blocked 20 rooms here for my wedding at a very reasonable rate ($99/night) especially considering the rates of near-by hotels on a big football game weekend.

The rooms are nice, spacious, and clean. Having a pull out couch and a fridge was very convenient for my guests. The free breakfast is good, but not fantastic, and the cocktail hour is a nice touch too (free beer/wine and cheese and crackers). The pool is good sized too.

The hotel also provided several shuttle services to my wedding venue.

It is not located down-town, but is very convenient to get there and to the main highway.

My son and husband stayed here last week. A very reasonable price plus a AAA discount made it quite affordable. The reservation was for "2 Queen Beds, Suite, No Smoking, 1 Room Suite, Sofabed-2Person, Free High-Speed Internet, Microwave and Refrigerator, Desk, Business Room" . This described the room correctly. In addition there was an exercise room with treadmills, weight machines, stairmaster, etc., and an indoor pool. Breakfast bar included eggs, yogurt, cereal, bagels, and fresh made waffles. They were pleasantly suprised at all these amenities, and the complimentary breakfast saved us the price on going out to eat. Without hesitation,we would absolutely stay there again, and would recommend it to friends. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Service with a smile. Very accomodating. This is a business hotel. Our suite had two separate heating controls, one each for the living room and the bedroom. In addition to breakfast, early evening appetizers are served M-F. They have a van service, business center, pool, laundry, great with directions around town. Rates very competitive for what they offer. Will stay here again!
