We got this room on Priceline for $69 and its not worth much more than that.
This property was a Doubletree until 2007. (This info was from the manager regarding when they became a Clarion)
We've stayed at Clarion properties in NH, Rhode Island and Massachusetts and they were good. This place was not.
The room -- Musty, musty smell requiring a candle. Mold on the tiles in the bathroom. The ironing board was rusted and broken. The closet door was missing. There was no full length mirror. Tiny tiny pillows.
The swimming pool -- Cloudy water, couldnt even see the bottom of the pool. The whirlpool has been dropped in to replace a previous one, It was obvious, there was painted boards around the whirlpool that were cracking. There were only a few pieces of mismatched pool furniture in this massive pool space.
Restaurant/bar -- Dated interior and empty on a Saturday night.
There are so many nice places in Portland-- If you Priceline it, go for the top star level.
This Clarion rates itself at 3 stars. Definitely NOT 3 starts, and definitely not a Clarion.
After 3 years they should have done something to fix this place up....
