We stayed at the Clarion for a religious convention at the end of July, 2005. Although the hotel was obviously filled to capacity, we received exceptional service and did not find the common areas to be too crowded.
One of the four elevators was out of order for our stay, but we did not have to wait long for an elevator up to our 11th floor room.
The hotel employees were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful to the guests. I even observed a hotel maintenance person out and about and carrying on friendly conversation with some kids headed down to the pool.
The Clarion has been redecorated recently, and has a beautiful lobby with marble tile and dark wood accents. There were several sitting areas, as well as the Broadway Cafe/Lounge with nightly entertainment.
The room was very CLEAN and quiet. The A/C kept it at a comfortable temperature even the weekend's temperatures climbed above the 100 degree mark. I was very impressed by the bathroom with a large vanity and spacious tub w/ shower. Our family of 4 (kids are aged 3 and 5) shared a king bed room. We requested a cot which was quickly delivered to our room after our arrival. The furniture was nice. A new large flat screened television was in a light colored wood armoire next to a large computer desk with free high speed internet. The bed had two nice matching end tables and an adjacent sitting chair w/ ottoman. There was also a large roll arm bench next to the armoire making for plenty of sitting space.
The pool was inviting to the kids, but there was not much sitting space around it. Since we have access to a private family pool back home that has a special filtering system that uses very little chlorine, we're a little spoiled. We didn't bother to take advantage of it on our trip.
The Clarion is in a great location, within walking distance of many things, and a short drive to others. We would have liked to be able to explore Little Rock more further than a few restaurants, but we were time constrained on our trip. I would not hesitate to stay at the Clarion again. Next time we may look at getting a suite. I'm assuming these rooms have a refrigerator/microwave, as ours did not.
