“Business Trip January 2013”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Good food, friendly service, clean room, nice amenities.
Pricing on room, food and bar were all competitive.
Recommend the 3 egg omlette for breakfast. Portions are huge.
Convenient to Interstate, Airport, and downtown.

Stayed one night before a Hawks game. Hotel was good for this purpose. Didn't need the fridge in the room but always appreciate that for longer stays. They have a nice free breakfast buffet but we didn't eat there so can't comment.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are closer to the pool, spa and restaurants.

The staff was great. Rooms are nice and clean. The hotel was very busy with conventions and weddings during our stay but it did not disrupt our stay at all. The parking lot got full pretty quick but they have ample parking.

Stayed at this Clarion for an anniversary getaway/Hawkeye game weekend. The hotel was extremely clean, well-lit and easy to find. Rooms weren't anything special but very comfortable. What made this a pleasant stay was the staff, friendly from the check in to the check out and even made some good recommendations to check out nightlife. Sports bar/restaurant on site had good food and drink specials and was very convenient. Would absolutely stay again if we go that direction and would not hesitate to recommend to others.

I atended a convention here in June 2012. I found the hotel to be very good. Nothing went wrong for me during the convention. The front desk was especially helpful and efficient. The hotel is within walking distance of several eating places.

First, our room was nice. The AC could have worked better though. Seemed like lots of constuction workers hanging out in lobby and in front of Main entrance. Pool area could be nice, but needs work. Ceiling panels missing.. Floor needs painting. Elevators and lobby smell like cigarettes. Paid $100.00 a night.. not a great deal! Don't pay more than $60.00. Room was quiet,.

We stayed here Aug 14, had stayed before several times but not in the last couple years. I reserved a King room and got a DBL, however they did change it. Went to use the phone and it did not work, found the cord was unplugged and wrapped around the base of the lamp. One of the other lamps did not work and found it to be unplugged and then it came on but you could not turn it off with the switch. Place needs a facelift room wise. Just outdated. When we checked in we found the pool was closed, wish we would have been told that before we arrived and we would have stayed elsewhere. The pool area was dirty and needed the floor repainted bad, there was a water leak running from the ceiling also. The buffett breakfast was good and plentiful. On checkout desk clerk just took my key, never asked about our stay or anything. It used to be a great place. The atrium is large with tables and chairs and that was one reason we stay there when in Cedar Rapids.
