I can only assume this property was purchased for a renovation, that is yet to be done. We reserved a king room and were provided a queen (with management insisting the queen-size bed was really a king). The television CRT set was so filled with static as to be unwatchable. The furniture and bedding were extremely stained and worn with age. Most flat surfaces (desk, coffee table, cabinets) were sticky with apparently years of spilled substances. The courtyard garden was littered with cigarette butts and trash. The fitness center has one weight machine that works; and two treadmills, one bike, one elliptical, and one weight machine that are broken. Doors have to be kicked hard to be opened. The walls and ceiling are so thin, you constantly hear noise from other rooms. It may have been elegant in the past, but this Clarion is a dump now. The only redeeming feature is the PURE Restaurant attached to the hotel. It is elegant, stylish, and exceptionally good (if fairly expensive).
