OK, we almost did not go due to some of the reviews we saw regarding the shuttle to airport. Well we can only say that not only was the rece,option very friendly, we had a cab take us to airport by hotel since shuttle had not started. So, for us we are staying at the hotel when we fly back... More

If you need or want to stay south of Seattle the Clarion is a good choice. Great location, convenient to shopping and restaurants. The free breakfast is served in what use to be a former restaurant so it is cozier than the usual tables in the middle of the lobby. Flat screen TVs are a plus also.

I've written reviews about the Clarion in Federal Way before, but want to update with a bit of info. First, looking at some recent reviews, I'm surprised.

The hotel is within walking distance to the Commons mall and TJ Max/Homegoods (if you have time to shop, that is). Its also extremely close to a few great restaraunts. If you're tired of going to...

I wanted to like this hotel, but can not give it a good/average rating. There are quite a few positives about it, so I'll start with those. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. There are three hot dishes that are rotated during the week, some bread and bagels, cereal, fruit, juices, coffee, tea, make your own waffle station and some pastries.... More
