Quietest hotel I've stayed in. Spacious, well-appointed room, with USB charger/digital alarm. Continental breakfast with two kinds of eggs, breakfast meats, biscuits and sausage gravy. Just a short walk away from concert at Alliant Energy Center.

The staff was nice and my suite was clean. They offered to keep the managers happy hour open for a tad longer since it was snowing so terribly and there were several guests checking in when it was supposed to be closing. I wish there was more fruit out for breakfast, I was able to find an apple, was going to ask for assistance but the gal who seemed to be in charge was on a personal call discussing the snow and couldn't be disturbed. All other staff were beyond wonderful and helpful. I typically stay at the Sheraton down the road but given the price thought I'd give the Clarion a try. If I can get a suite, I will definitely be back.

Huge room !

Pros: Huge room with the perfect lay out !!!!!
Location: next door to park where Brat fest held.
we stayed in room 803. It was huge with 2 very comfortable queen beds, mini kitchen, sofa and tv, had view of Alliant park where Brat fest was held. easy walk over to fest. also view of downtown Madison in distance. couple exits away from a Walmart (10 min.) We were told that room 817 with just on queen was a big room too. Hotel pool and hot tub were standard hotel amenities and were good. Good continental breakfast.

Decent place to stay.

Pros: Check in and check out was easy. The free hot breakfast was more than we expected. It was nice that the breakfast had later hours than most hotels.
Cons: Our room was outdated, the carpet looked dirty as well as the couch. The bed was so-so. Not terrible, but would have liked better.
Location: This is not a great location, driving to dinner is a must. There is really nothing around it.
The hotel seemed full . The lobby and public areas looked updated, our room was not. We liked the noon check out. Nice dinning area for the breakfast.

Nice place, a little pricey.

Pros: Convenient to Olin Park.
Location: Most people would need to drive to State Street and the Capitol. It is a pretty busy traffic area. There is not much nearby-within walking distance.
The Clarion is on the outskirts of Madison probably about a 2 mile walk to the capitol. I was in town for a large athletic event that was being held 1/2 mile away. I was surprised that the front desk staff did not seem to know about the event despite a large number of competitors staying at the Clarion. There was no early breakfast and no information about late checkout and not any willingness to find out more or be accommodating. The rooms were fine, parking was available, microwave and little fridge in the rooms. But there are plenty of other hotels within a quarter mile that may have been more accommodating to the needs of guests (at least having coffee and bagels available a little earlier in the morning).

Excellent Stay at the Clarion

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: The location is a bit inconvenient since it is located right off the beltline and some distance from the downtown area.
Everything about my two day stay at the Clarion is rated as excellent. Desk staff, housekeeping, the breakfast staff and all other personnel encountered are rated as outstanding in the service they provided for the two nights I was in residence at this hotel. The rooms and all of the furnishings could not be any better. I do not have any recommendations on how you could improve upon the outstanding stay I had at the Clarion Suites.

Great value option

This was the cheaper option of a few hotels in the area. Clean, comfortable with friendly staff, they also offered complimentary glasses of wine and beer in the reception area during happy hour. This wasn't a luxury stay, but again the price wouldn't warrant that. A good choice.
