“Very dissappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2006

My husband and I won a nights stay in one of the "theme" (fake palm in the corner made it theme room I guess)suites. The carpet had huge stains on it, wall paper was torn from the wall, mould on the bathroom ceiling etc. We were able to enjoy the pool, mineral spring, steam room for an hour by ourselves before others showed up but again there was mould going up the walls 6 to 8 inches from the floor. The cart that coffee, muffins etc were served on was covered in rust. There was linens covering the flat parts of the cart that the food touched but the legs were full of rust along with the radiator cover. I understand that it very humid in there but my gosh buy a can of rust paint! The floor in the entire pool area was dirty and needs to be pressure washed badly. The idea of what was getting on everyones feet and then brought into the pools is quite sickening. This package was valued at $300. I wouldn't have paid more than $69. This hotel looks years older than it actually is.

I recently stayed at the Clarion, a very nice hotel. The hotel itself is very nice, clean and comfortable. It also has a very central location, however the price is very unreasonable.

Nice but I have stayed at far cheaper hotels with comparable quality.

Wow! I stayed at the Clarion Hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of May 2006. What a wonderful experience. I am from Los Angeles and travel alot for business everywhere. One night during my stay I thought I would check out their lounge with another 2 colleagues and the bartender was very friendly and humourous. Excellent drinks! The front desk staff were warm, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I felt at home! When I return to Winnipeg, I will definitely be staying at the Clarion Hotel. I was across the street from the largest shopping centre in the city and great restaurants and movie theatres.
My room was spacious as I was staying in one of their suites. The room was very clean and well kept. The housekeeper was also friendly. It is my home away from home-everyone took care of me.
Oh my goodness!!! You have to have a manicure and massage, and soak in their mineral pool at their spa-after a stressful day in meetings it was the perfect way to end my day.

My stay at the Clarion Hotel was excellent!! We stayed in the Japanese theme room and found out that there are not seats in the hottub, it is a head rest!!! The room has a great view, comfortable beds and the service from staff was excellent!! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

I spent a Saturday night at the Clarion while passing through Winnipeg. I parked my vehicle in the hotel's parkade for the night only to discover that someone had attempted the break into it causing considerable damage. I notified the front desk whose only comment was that there is a security guard patrolling the parkade and he didn't report anything. The front desk person did not care the least bit and could not be bothered. The parkade itself has a drop gate to allow only people with hotel access cards entrance. Unfortunately, the hotel was not utilizing this security system and any passerby had access to the vehicles parked within. I will never stay at the Clarion again and recommend anyone think twice about staying there.

We had reserved a Hawaiian theme for our wedding night. The theme that we had paid $275.00 was a jacuzzi and a fake palm tree in the corner of the room. Yeah the jacuzzi was great, BUT the seat was broken and when I went to climb in, the seat fell off into the water. It was just a NORMAL room with a fake tree. Nothing special...and I WOULD NEVER SPEND ANOTHER $275.00 FOR A THEME SUITE IN THE CLARION AGAIN.
