I stayed at the Clarion Hotel with my 4 year old daughter so that we could visit the National Harbor and just hang out in the DC area. I booked at this location after reading reviews, comparing prices, and checking the amenities that we wanted. Those amenities included, (free) continental breakfast, pool, microwave and refrigerator. According to Trip Advisor and another review site, this place not only had free breakfast and the other amenities I desired, but it also had a game room/arcade. So, I booked it!
When I got to my room, there was no microwave or refrigerator in it. I called to the front desk and was told that they are not in every room. I also asked about the free breakfast and was informed that such did not exist. They did, however, allow me to switch rooms to one with the microwave and fridge.
My daughter and I went to the basement to go to the pool. The pool was freezing cold. The lifeguard told me that the heater was broken and that's why the water was so frigid. So, we left. We later went to the front desk to inquire where the arcarde was and the receptionist looked at me like I was crazy as she said, "We don't have one here".
I was sooo disappointed. I was planning to stay another night, but instead looked into the Comfort Inn directly across the street that was the same price.
This place is very close (driving) to the Natinal Harbor and the customer service was good, but I was very upset because of the false advertisements. For this price, you would expect newer amenities such as flat screen TVs or updated pools, etc.
I doubt it if I will ever stay here again.
