This is more like a 2 or 2-1/2 Star Hotel. Yes the rooms are large and the beds comfy. The whole hotel, especially the rooms smell old and musky. My room 244 has a leaky toilet that makes noise every 15 minutes. For the price Clarion charges for a room here, they need to up their game and do some... More

Front desk personnel very friendly & knowledgable. Aaron and the young ladies were just about the best we've dealt with. Breakfast was very delicious with waffles, strawberries, whipped cream. (I did not have being gluten free but hubby did have and even the waffles were a different flavor each day). Eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, Cheerios for me. We asked for... More

The hotel was clean and inviting. I liked the friendly staff. The room was relatively updated but the walls were thin and I could here the neighbors. The bathroom mirror was broken in multiple spots and the shower curtain was tired and torn in several spots. Overall, I enjoyed myself.

The room I got had a King Size bed and was clean and comfortable. Even had a nice view of Mt. Rainier. Breakfast was also delicious. I would consider recommending this hotel to friends and other travelers.

We stayed at this hotel for a few nights for my daughter's gymnastics competition in Tacoma, it was a great choice. It was midway between Tacoma and Seattle so location was good. Hotel itself was very nice, room is spacious and clean with good breakfast included. And the check in process was easy, staff was nice and helpful. I would... More

This was our third stay at Clarion Federal Way. My mother needs a handicap room. Handicap rooms have improved alot. (Would be nice to have a personal shower head hook lower on the wall.) We enjoy the complimentary breakfast! Also, the friendly and helpful Front Desk and housekeeping staff.

There is a park going in right next door which will be super nice if its not raining. There is a $2 movie theatre close by... More

The overall stay was OK: fast check-in, real scrambled eggs at the breakfast buffet, tidy property, and close to many mostly pan-Asian restaurants. But with no blackout curtains (just sheers) and bright halogen shining through from the parking lot, I felt like I was sleeping in the parking lot.

Good, clean rooms - a helpful staff, and a better than average breakfast. The hotel also has a small bar with typical bar fare and good service (though it was sparsely attended on a recent Saturday night visit when I was there watching a football game). A pleasant lobby, overall clean environment, and close proximity to shopping makes this a... More
