This is our usual airport hotel for our out of town trips. We booked the park and fly rate for the beginning of our trip and another room for our return a week later. On the first night, we had an A/C that was quite noisy. We switched from fan to cool and it was a bit better, but in the middle of the night it started clanking and then died altogether. We reported it in the morning on checkout and they apologized and gave me an extra 1000 points on our Choice Privileges account. When we returned we got the best room we've ever had there, on the 4th floor with a very quiet A/C and got a wonderful full night's sleep.
This is by no means an upscale hotel, but we've always found it ideal for our needs. The rooms have nice views over a lake and the breakfast is the normal fare for such hotels, which is good enough.
What i did notice was that the hotel was in the process of upgrading a lot of the room amenities. New bathroom sink and tub/shower faucets, for example. I'm confident they'll soon replace (if they haven't already) the clunky A/C in that first room.

Room Tip: I don't know if all the rooms on the 4th floor are as nice as the one we had, but it's worth asking.

oregonpoppa,
I am glad to hear that the staff took care of you upon hearing of your A/C issues. I do recall hearing about the A/C the next day. The unit was replaced. Thank you for staying with us, we appreciate your visits.

I booked a wake-up call with the front desk for 8.30 am (I told them i didn't have an appointment till 10 am) but was awoken by the telephone at 5.15 am instead! Not good. And I certainly wasn't offered an apology or a refund for their mistake. Also the windows are very thin and the rooms incredibly noisy early in the morning from the planes taking off: they could use some double-glazing. The breakfast is the only plus point here, decent coffee and orange juice plus free newspaper.

Room Tip: They have the hotel linked to a kiost at the Portland Airport --- along with about 10 other hotels --- and they came and picked me up within 15 minutes.

Everything was just fine on my stay: sevice, staff, complimentary breakfast and internet, room, cleaning, everything. Really recommended for business trips. You need a car, though, as it is quite far from downtown. REally close to the airport. Shuttle available

Room Tip: Once a week they have a show at the restaurant with free beverages. It's a Elvis Presley cover. Great to relax after a day of work.

I travel quite a bit and I judge a hotel more by its customer service than the quality of its rooms. The Clarion has some fantastic staff members who made my three day stay enjoyable. One staff member, Maria, went out of her way to drop me off at a local shopping area on a return trip from a shuttle run to the airport. She also provided me with great walking directions back to the hotel and said that if I didn't feel like walking the two miles she would be happy to come back and pick me up. She definitely went above and beyond her duties and I truly appreciated it.
My room was clean, although some of the furniture did show some signs of wear and tear. I had a nice view of the nearby man-made lake. The outside noise was about what I expected for a hotel so close to airport.
All in all a nice stay. The staff is a great example of exceptional customer service.

I stayed here on two separate occasions on a recent trip to the Northwest. And I'd stayed here one previously.

On this go-around, the first stay worked out better than the second. There was a bit more noise than usual (seemed to be a large group of young people on my floor), but otherwise it went about as well as when I was here about a year and a half ago. On the second stay, they initially put me in a room that I was certain someone must have smoked in recently. (Also, the toilet wouldn't stop running.) So I visited the front desk and they happily moved me, and explained that my initial room was directly above a smoking room. Lesson learned.

I still love the proximity to the airport, the nearby bike/jogging paths and the front desk service. And it would be very hard to beat the price.

Room Tip: If you choose a non-smoking room, ask for one that is not located directly above a smoking room. Otherwise, you'll likely smell smoke, especially in the bathroom area.
