This Clarion is was built in the day when hotels had thick walls and grand decor. The staff in the lobby was very helpful - especially Rose at the front desk. My 6th floor room was on the backside of the hotel, away from Gervais Street. The beds were comfy with 4 pillows. I heard that there was a Conference going on in the hotel meeting rooms and they have a full service restaurant with a breakfast buffet for $8.95. The bathroom had been updated however the plumbing was slow to drain in the sink. I would have preferred not to be at the end of the hall near the ice machine which had a motor that I could hear in my room.
