I stayed for 2 nights with friends at the Clarion at the beginning of a medical mission trip to rural Honduras. The hotel was quite empty, we presumed because of the 4 week old coup's deturrence of visitors. Our room was comfortable and clean with all the amenities and plenty of room even with the roll away bed added to accomodate our extra person. The beds and pillows were very comfortable with soft sheets and down pillows. The bathroom was fine with plenty of good pressure hot water and all the usual amenities. The room included an electronic safe in the closet which we used. Wireless internet service that worked fairly well was available for a $10/24 hour fee which seemed okay given the very affordable room price. The staff all spoke some English and gracefully coaxed us in our practicing Spanish. The pool is very nice set with tropical plants surrounding, a wall protecting it from street noise and a patio looking out over the surrounding hills of the city - a very nice spot to relax after a day's sightseeing. The fitness room is well equipped with relatively new cardio equipment and free weights but felt a bit claustrophobic being in a "daylight" basement type room below ground level. The restaurant's main focus was buffets for nearly every meal, but we easily negotiated discounts for a restricted selection of very tasty Honduran food. Their breakfast buffet was very extensive with lots of fresh fruit and juices and anything else you might want including cooked to order omelettes and pupusas. The staff were all very attentive and friendly, and our every need was met. They quickly arranged an excellent private driver for a day trip to Valle de Angeles and Santa Lucia.
Worth noting depending on the current security situation in Honduras. The Clarion is about 2 blocks from the Marriott which is itself immediately adjacent to the Presidential Palace. Both are some distance from the parque central and the more interesting tourist sites. Being so close to government buildings shortly after the coup (and with a meeting of the OAS at our hotel), there was a large security presence in our hotel and in the area which was friendly though a bit disconcerting at times.
My friends and I found the Clarion a very pleasant place to start our trip in Honduras, and we would definitely stay there again.
