The Clarion is a renovated office building (Manitoba Telephone) and the owners deserve credit for "recycling" an existing building rather than demolish and start from scratch. It is conveniently located close to a major shopping mall, on a major artery (Portage Ave) and close to the Winnipeg airport. Our room on the second floor faced Portage Ave and was surprisingly quiet. That said, the free wifi signal was very weak and nonexistent in the conference rooms in the basement, the hotel charges an additional $10 for a second person, the lighting in the rooms was very poor (no ceiling lights at all), and the key card to open the door worked only about 10% of the time. There was a coffee maker in our room. The hotel does not have its own restaurant but is connected to the "Original Pancake House" that serves a wide variety of breakfasts as well as typical restaurant fare. Parking is free. The hotel does have a reasonably nice indoor pool with a slide and a spa but we did not use either. Service was adequate although some cleaning staff could be friendlier. Unless there is a need to be close to the shopping area, there are newer and better hotels close to the Winnipeg airport.
