Enjoyed pool but there was a used bandaid and a big clump of hair on the pool edge. Did not see any staff check on pool cleanliness during either the 2 hour and 1 hour visits we made to the pool. Both items remained. 😝

The staff was Friendly

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
This is my first time at this property so I was a little nervous. To my surprise I found the staff very friendly and helpful. I was told they are renovating the hotel. My room was a suite with a separate room. I found the bed comfortable and slept well. I didn't do the spa but will next time I come back.

Average, not recommended.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast
My family and I stayed here for 5 nights in one of the king bed suites. There room was huge, too huge... There was very little furniture and what was there was cheap and old. The mattress was well worn and the pull out was a horrible back-destroying spring mattress. The room itself was very dark, so dark that we jokingly referred to it as our cave away from home. There was no overhead lights in the room, only a few standing and desk lamps which did a poor job of lighting our cave. The bathroom was adequate and had a small sink and an older bath/shower. Don't put anything on the shower curtain rod though, it's one of those cheap expendable types from Le Canuck Pneu and will fall quite easily. The pool was nice though and the waterside was quite fun. Also, the hotel is next to the Polo Park mall, which is convenient. There's a nice big lobby which leads to the free parade and an attached Pancake House. The hotel was okay, but there's plenty of better options in Winnipeg.

Not impressed

I stayed at the Clarion in Winnipeg for the location. I usually stay at the Winnipeg Hilton Airport Suites but decided to try the Clarion to be closer to shopping. Room service is only available until 9pm. No in-room refridgerator. Internet is not wireless and very slow. The bed and pillows were soft foam. The desk chair was broken, the remote control batteries were dead and the alarm clock was broken too. And here's the best one --the deadbolt on the door was broken. Dark, dingy room. I was very unimpressed.

Sleep by the pool

I booked this hotel on a recomendation to host a business meeting. The interent connection was not working in my room but I was still charged full price. They offered me use of the business center - a small room in a hall behind the main desk and told me the hotel was fully booked - sorry - nothing they could do (oh but there was wireless in the lobby if I wanted to sit out there to do the meeting) After saying I would check out and find another hotel they suddenly had a room with working internet for my meeting the next day. it Both rooms faced the pool and smelled so strongly of chlorine that I might as well have slept poolside. Plus the pool is open till late in the evening with full lights on and the wall facing the pool is fully windowed so you get the lights from the pool all day and till 11PM as well.\n\nIf you are a family and the kids want to swim the pool area looks great and the mall is across the street. This would probably be a great place to be. Otherwise I would go elsewhere. If you MUST stay here ask for a room that does NOT face the pool in the hope you will not breath chlorine the whole time you are there.

Poor Check In Service

We tried to check in early (after calling first and told probably by 1:30/2 but when we got there we were told we were ""not a priority"". Our room wasn't ready until 3 which is normal check in. Found this disappointing since we witnessed everyone else who came to the counter early, was able to check in. Once in we found the place clean and we ended up enjoying ourselves. Not too sure if I would repeat the experience though. Front desk personal should also be taught how to smile and greet customers with a friendly attitude.
