The Clarion is on the outskirts of Downtown Anchorage. within easy walking to the CBD. Clean and tidy rooms, we had a lounge area, if a little dated in the decor. Very helpful front desk and a lot of information about the town and surrounding areas

The accommodations are clean and comfortable, with excellent staff and good amenities, including an indoor pool and separate whirlpool/hot tub (which, unfortunately, was being serviced when we stayed). Further they're true suites; the sofa bed section is separated from the main bedroom by a door, and it even has its own TV. This is excellent if you're traveling with kids,...

The Clarion Suites hotel is just a 7 - 10 minute walk to the centre of town. It's an older hotel and our room had a lounge area separate to the bedroom. Standard room facilities are supplied (e.g.g. Coffee, iron, board). Otherwise the room was old but very comfortable including bed and pillows. The air conditioner was obviously old and...

We were in Anchorage for three nights at the start out our trip to Alaska and stayed at the Clarion Suites. The free pick-up service from the airport was very useful. It you struggle to find a way to call the hotel when you arrive, we asked at the visitor centre in the airport to contact the hotel for us,...

This hotel turned out to be fine, despite my initial reaction to the old and stained carpet in the lobby. The rooms were clean, quiet, and fairly large, and the location was wonderful. We loved downtown Anchorage, with its wide, clean streets and minimal traffic. Shopping and good restaurants were all within several blocks, as was our car rental pickup...

This hotel has fairly large rooms with separate space for couch and t.v. viewing. The hotel stay comes with a complimentary breakfast. The Wi-Fi is completely unprotected, so you'll want to have good protection of your own. The parking is the worst thing I've ever seen. The ice and snow build up makes the lot almost impassable. Your vehicle could...

Location is good. Parking is horrible. Parking lot is shared with Benihana's restaurant, so limited until after 10 pm. No hot water our first night. Breakfast was great, hotel staff was working really hard because they were understaffed. I did not feel safe there, animals are allowed and were frequently found in the foyer and hallways with the owners just...

The Clarion Suites Dowtown is conveniently located near Benehani's Japanese Restaurant. In fact, it is immediately adjacent to the hotel property, and is very convenient for dinner. There are other good restaurants within walking distance...less than 1/2 mile. Overall this hotel is a pretty good place to stay; however, one should be aware of some negatives. First, I will share...

I was welcomed by friendly staff and found the room to spacious and comfortable. There's nothing fancy about the room but it was well equipped and had everything I needed for my one night stay. Breakfast wasn't bad with a choice of cereals, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, yogurt, various baked items and make-your-own pancakes. The location is convenient...

Do you think that it's ok to have the front desk clerk at clarion tell you that your MasterCard doesn't work then tries to send u off to extended stay after they had swiped my card 3x taking out all the money I had left in MasterCard. Tried Leaving you out in the cold, lettin you go from hotel to hotel wondering why you have no money left. And then was able to figure out that the clarion had charged ur card 3x after telling you, the card doesn't work -well it happend to me, i went back after motel 6 had helped me get to the bottom of what was going on with my card, I was lucky enough to make my way back all the way to the clarion to confront the front desk clerk, he walks away &was whispering with ppl in the back room for a good 15mins then comes back out not even apologizing his excuse was because I was $5 short? &I offered to have money back in card the next day, which leaves me with no money no place to go. I have a video recorded and photos of the man who is STILL working there! He also offered to pay money back out of the companies til/register. Because HE WAS GUILTY & still no apology. Whether he gave me cash back it was 5 in the morning I was tired and cold and scared because I had nowhere to go a the time and didn't know my way around i have no car so he expected me to go on about my way with all my bags in middle night wandering around the streets after I had told him I got dropped off so I'm on foot what kind of man could do that to a girl, I got sick for a week because I caught a cold! From bein out and about because of that employee of clarion suites! Screw the money he should be fired! That's fraud, he swiped my card 3x
