My husband and I stayed at the Clarion right after Christmas when we were stuck at the Milwaukee airport due to weather. I stayed one night, my husband stayed two. The entire hotel was flooded with people trying to get a room that night (most flights had been cancelled), and the front desk was fully staffed, ready to meet travelers when they arrived off the shuttle. The line moved quickly, and the woman who checked us in was very calm and professional. The shuttle driver also was in a good mood, despite the fact that the van was crammed full of tired, crabby travelers.
The room itself far exceeded our expectations: down pillows and duvet; updated fixtures and furniture; large, flat-screen TV with all the cable you can imagine (unlike some ritzier hotels where the cable is limited to news and sports). The bathroom had a nice granite-looking counter with Neutrogena products and a large showerhead. We were on the top floor, so there was no noise from above, but we didn't experience any noise between the walls.
The hotel has free wifi, which worked intermittently in our room (on the top floor, last room on the end). We did not, however, try it out in the lobby, where I expect it works better.
The bar in the basement was quite lively; the bartenders were nice and efficient. Our only complaint was the karaoke blasting at a million decibels.
If we're ever stuck in Milwaukee again, we'll definitely stay at the Clarion.
