I stayed here on business as I was working in St Albans for a fortnight. I had been in a couple of different hotels in st albans in my first week and had pretty poor experiences with both of them. I booked the clarion collection for a change and was glad that I did. It was just what I wanted in a hotel - modern, clean, friendly staff and excellent location. It's very reasonably priced for the quality. I met two receptionists who were both great and made time for me when I needed anything. The room service from cafe rouge was also excellent. There were no extra fees to have it delivered to your room which is often the case in hotels. I ordered almost every night and the food was at my door within 30 minutes. If I am ever in the St Albans area again I wouldn't hesistate to book here again. Lovely place.
