We always love staying here and even though we live in Winnipeg, we'll book a night, bring the kids and relax. The Clarion offers a well rounded array of amenities. Great location, across the street from Polo Park and restaurants. The Pancake House, is conveniently just down stairs - great for breakfast. The spa is beautiful and compliments the style and services of the hotel and the pool and waterslide are perfect for the kids. The rooms are clean and welcoming, the beds are comfortable and the service is all around, very good.

Nothing of note to separate this hotel from the pack. Average. The location is convenient as it right beside the Polo Park mall and is collocates with a Pancake House restaurant (NOT fine dining) Strange to see how I had to lift my bags up a flight of stairs at the front entrance in order to get to the front desk....or take a funny elevator to go up 6 feet. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Overall, simply aim Jane.

Dear Bryan, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. It is through feedback such as yours that we are able to improve the guest experience. Please note that our hotel is about to begin full renovations in January of 2014 and we assure you that when they are completed, you will not feel the same way! The guestrooms, meeting space, common areas and spa will all be fully renovated with the most modern decor and high tech amenitites. We understand that it is time for a refresh and after seeing the plans I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!
We do appreciate that you commented on our convenient location....just minutes from the airport and downtown and steps away from Polo Park Shopping Centre, SilverCity cimenas and numerous restaurants. We understand the Pancake House is not fine dining, however, you are literally steps away from numerous other fine dining establishments just across the street. That being said, we usually get nothing but very positive comments regarding the Pancake House as there is a line up out their front door for breakfast every morning.
We also appreciate the fact that you mentioned the cleanliness of the guestrooms as our housekeeping staff work diligently everyday to ensure that this is the case. We also Thank You for noticing the comfort of the bed. We have just replaced the matresses in order to offer you, the guest, a more enjoyable and comfortable stay when you are away from home.
Once again, Thank You for your review and we hope that you will give us another try once our renovations are completed as we are certain that you will be thrilled with the changes.

We went in for a weekend away with the kids and were not dissapointed at all. Rooms where very clean and the pool and waterslide were a huge hit with the kids. Polo Park shopping center is right across the street as well. Will definately stay there again.

Spaces are limited in Winnipeg to have a nice Wedding, so narrowing down our options for a classy, upscale hotel; we were absolutely blown away by the Clarion. They made planning a Wedding so much easier! Having a large Portuguese-French (Canadian) Wedding, we were very particular about our venue because of space & food. It was great that we felt so welcomed from day one! They worked with us through every step of our Wedding planning, making sure; our Wedding Favors were placed on the tables, our centerpieces were correctly placed, all the coloring books and crayons for kids were in the right spots, and most importantly, they made sure we had EVERYTHING WE WANTED!!! We didn’t even set-up at the Manitoba room, because they took care of everything! You hear stories about soup or your entrée being served cold, but I was so amazed how my soup was piping hot, not too hot though, just right. Our veal came out with the sides and we were more than surprised at how the staff could work fast enough to serve all 230 guests, while keeping our food HOT, and DELICIOUS! The bar staff had such a positive attitude and made our guests laugh, and the servers knew what they were doing. The hotel was IMPRECCABLY CLEAN and the hall looked OUTSTANDING. After the Wedding, we relaxed in our BEAUTIFUL room, and headed out to the pool and water slides in the morning! We tremendously appreciate everything the Clarion did for us, and for making our night more perfect than we could imagine. Definitely FIVE STARS! Thanks again to all the staff at the Clarion! See you for our next major event!

Sincerely,

Marcio & Daniel

I liked the Hotel for a quick short stay. There is a Breakfast place attached called the Pancake House, great for older guests and families. Try the Apple Cinamon crepe dish. On the other side of the Hotel is the Polo Park Mall and Earls. The Mall has a Big Theatre there also. The New Football Stadium is not near this hotel. Rooms are clean and staff are curtious.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It is true...our location can't be beat! We are minutes away from the airport and downtown, as well as steps away from Polo Park Shopping Mall, SilverCity Cinema's, as well as numerous restaurants. It is true that we are no longer a block away from the football stadium and we have changed that information on as many websites as possible. That being said, there are numerous websites that still contain old information and that we have no control over. We are in the process of trying to have these changes made on the web regarding the Clarion and we apologize for the fact that you received incorrect information regarding such!
We are happy to hear that you noticed the cleanliness of our guest rooms and the friendly and courteous service that you received. We are very proud of the quality of service that we are known for. We do want to advise you that we are about to begin a full renovation of the hotel....from guest rooms to meeting space to common areas and the parkade....all on the renovation list! We sincerely look forward to welcoming you back one day soon!

We had stayed here 8 years ago when the hotel was new and fresh but were disappointed to find it tired, run down and smelling badly of cigarette smoke. It's a lovely property, in a great location across from Polo Park, close to restaurants, etc. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, but it took us three tries to find one that didn't reek of smoke or the deodorizer used to mask the odor. The staff was friendly and accommodating in helping us find an acceptable room, and indicated that a renovation and non-smoking policy are in the works, but until they are we will not be going back. The parking lot is dingy and inconvenient, but handicapped parking is available out front if you don't mind walking through the cloud of smoke at the front door.

Room Tip: The fourth floor is a smoking floor and the smell permeates the third floor as well. Try for the se...

Dear Keetka, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It is through feedback such as yours that we are able to improve and better service our guests. We sincerely apologize for your experience regarding our smoking guest rooms. The fourth and top floor of the hotel is a smoking floor. We have installed a state of the art ventilation system in order to avoid situations like the one you encountered, and we are disheartened to hear of your experience.
We are about to begin a full renovation of the hotel and you will be happy to hear that as of January 7, 2014, we will be a non smoking establishment. The guest rooms, meeting space, common areas and parkade are all on the renovation list.
We very much appreciate that you commented on our friendly and accommodating staff. We take great pride in the level of service that we provide to our guests...and you are correct....our location can't be beat!

My fiancé and I first booked our wedding reception in late 2012. We liked that the Clarion was right across from Polo Park (for guests to stroll about in before our reception) and that the venue would allow us to bring in Filipino desserts for the late night snack. So we had done the basics like chosen the room, menu, décor, and music provider. In the span of 6 months, the person in the Director of Sales & Marketing position had changed twice and then we found ourselves working with Charlene. I was a bit anxious anticipating that I would have to repeat all my information again…. I had never been so glad to be so wrong as Charlene was amazing to work with! She introduced herself as having handled many wedding receptions and then launched into how she had read over all the notes and e-mails from the previous manager’s file. I was so ecstatic that she was “on the ball” with my event. She even asked me about minor details (When was the cake being delivered? Do we have a cake knife?) which really helped in making our schedule for that evening. Charlene is a true gift to the Clarion with her wealth of knowledge, professionalism, and efficiency. I would also like to state that our reception went smoothly. She had set up my centrepieces, favours, and tables as I had outlined. The serving staff and bar staff gave great service. The food was excellent, too. Everyone loved the chicken. I would also like to add that I had a few vegans and people who ate only kosher. Charlene was able to get those ordered for me and my special guests. Thank you to all the staff at the Clarion. We stayed right until 1 am (a special hi to Joey!) and then my husband and I spent the night in a complimentary honeymoon suite. We really appreciated your service! Thank you! So if your date is available at the Clarion, book it right away. You will not regret it!
