Clario has much to commend but aging

Posted Dec 11, 2017
Cons: P
Portland Clarion is convenient to airport , Mall and highway. The staff are fine. The restaurant serves standard fare,, with good service. Only breakfast and dinner, no lunch.. Pool is clean well kept and cooler than we like,82 with a hot tub higher. The room is aging, sheets clean but worn. The heat needed in December was forced hot air and difficult to control, less comfortable to sleep. We stay there for the convenience and will return, hoping they work harder on the details.

Pros: the convenience to airport and I-295, the pool and Jacuzzi, the quiet, the friendliness of staff
Cons: well, the room heater kept coming on to blow cool air into the room during the night on one of the colder nights I was there.
I stayed at the Clarion for 5 nights on a family visit to Portland. Everything worked fine. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Portland who wants convenience and proximity to freeways, airport, and downtown. It's not pretentious, and I liked that too.

Upgrading needed

Posted Oct 22, 2017
Pros: Coffee and tea maker in room.
Cons: Bathrooms, total upgrade, new carpets and improved breakfast.
This hotel needs serious upgrading. I do not know how the hotel cleaning staff does their job. The cleaning staff is amazing and does their best with cracks around the bathroom sink, the caulking in the old bathroom is probably done every time a visitor leaves, every week.The carpets smell musty and old. Unless they upgrade every room we will never stay there again. The breakfast buffet that cost money, not included in the cost of the stay, was pretty bad as well. The scrambled eggs were runny and tasted gross. After our first morning hoping to eat breakfast at the hotel every morning to start our day, we wasted time to find a place to eat breakfast to start our day. I hope they will upgrade this place very soon! It is not very nice enough at all!

Clean, friendly and well maintained hotel. Breakfast was a bargain at the cost of ten dollars.

Good Access to Airport and Not Far From Downtown

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Pros: Good location, good rate, nice facilities.
Cons: The staff didn't seem to always communicate well among themselves.
Location: About 10-15 minutes from downtown and the airport. A good location since the only rental car place is at the airport.
The room was nice, the bed was comfortable, the facilities overall were very good. The staff was generally helpful, and the location was very good. Just off what I assume was a main artery, we caught the shuttle downtown or to the airport a few times, and Uber was within 5 minutes other times. Overall a good stay. One small complaint was that the shuttle to downtown left without us one night and despite talking to the staff, we waited for 30 minutes on it. However, to make good they did comp us a taxi.

Disappointing hotel

Posted Oct 14, 2017
So disappointing. Check in staff were very unprofessional. Found dirty q-tips on the bathroom floor. That night we went to the bar for a drink no bar man to serve us when my husband finally found one he was so rude said he was busy and said he couldn't do everything himself. We did not have a drink and cancelled our second night at the hotel.
