I usually need to find a government rate when I travel. During my last trip, I tried the Clarion, which didn't have a government rate per se but offered one that met the per diem requirements. The hotel is a quirky, fairly small old building....More
Visited for a quick trip to San Fran for a concert. Having never lodged at a Clarion, I didn't know what to expect. From the moment we walked in, Farida at the Front Desk was welcoming and full of smiles. She took the time to...More
The Clarion was near where we wanted to be and was reasonably priced so we booked it. There are a few things to be aware of. The hotel is in a very old building. The rooms were small - it reminded me of an interior...More
I don't usually review but felt I had to after reading all the negative reviews Clarion Hotel had received. Based on what I had read here, I was not going to stay . But intuitively it felt right and , to be honest, I had...More
Choice hotels is already the bottom of the barrel when it comes to hotel chains, but this location really sells it. Need some flexibility in your booking? Forget about it. Looking for a nice location? Look elsewhere.

Not really. But I will say that Chinatown is only a few blocks away and, for me, I didn't find the walk dangerous. The streets, however, can appear dark and empty with stragglers hanging out on the street corners.
