My wife and I recently had an enjoyable stay at the Clarion Hotel Downtown Colorado Springs!
We were looking for accomodations while shooting photos at a sporting event, and hoped to find something basic, and near the downtown area so that we could explore the town in the afternoons and evenings. I came across the Clarion on the internet, and it sounded like it was what we were looking for.
We were pleasantly surprised to find it to be a good bit nicer than we had anticipated! The attractive and well kept appearance of the lobby and friendly staff was very welcome after our long drive.
After a quick check-in, we went down to our poolside room... and found it to be very clean, and comfortable...a great place to relax.
Later that evening, we were delighted to find that we could WALK to down town!! What a luxury! Unfortunatly, the most direct route downtown was impassable due to bridge construction near the hotel, but we found a slightly longer but still easy route. We spent two evenings exploring the beautiful downtown area...one of the high points of the trip!
We spent so much time exploring downtown we never had time to enjoy the lovely pool...maybe next time!
The bridge construction project near the hotel was well along , and did not affect or stay in any way except for needing to take a slightly less direct route to the hotel.
One of the other factors in our decision to stay at the Clarion was the hot breakfast bar which was included in the room price.
The food was good, with a good selection of choices. It made it easy to get the day started quickly.
We would recommend the hotel...definately above average!!
