“70's Style”
Reviewed 1 May 2006

The best part of the hotel is the lobby; relatively bright and modern. The staff were friendly and the place was clean but it could do with an update. The room was okay, but the fake marble bathroom suite was straight out of the 1970's. The restaurant was also about 30 years behind the standard, all dark veneers and plastic seat covers. It offers a "breakfast service", but in truth only two hot items are available at the buffet: scrambled egg and sausage one day; scrambled egg and bacon the next day. I'll be back to Cedar Rapids, but not to the Clarion.

Reviewed 28 June 2005

About a month ago, a friend of mine got married in Cedar Rapids, IA. She had blocked rooms at various hotels but I chose to stay at the Clarion Hotel. What a wonderful experience we had. The hotel sent the shuttle to pick us up at the airport and the bellman was very friendly and personable. The lobby area was beautiful, the front desk staff was very welcoming, the rooms were clean and comfortable. Everything about our stay was great, including the food in the restaurant. Even their pool was exceptional and it's open 24 hours which was so nice after the reception. We didn't have any problems whatsoever with our visit and would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone traveling to Cedar Rapids.
