We thought everything went amazing. All the staff members we encountered did an amazing job and answered every silly question or request we had. All the staff always had a smile on their faces even though our families aren't always the easiest to deal with.
Also we would have loved to have had the room for longer that night, we felt that the 5 hour maximum limit was a little short. Other than that we thought everything was amazing. Heather was an excellent wedding planner and facilitator, she knows her stuff and helped make things less stressful for us. Bethany, I believe was her name, was part of the wait staff for the rehearsal Friday and was at the 90th birthday party that Sunday was amazing, her personality was great!
Again everything was really amazing and I wouldn't have had our wedding anywhere else. The staff, atmosphere, and everything was truly amazing.

The Clarion was amazing for our wedding reception and rooms for all of our guests. The staff took care of everything we needed and Chef Kim made ridiculously delicious vegan entrees for us.

The sales department staff (Heather & Katie) were excellent
The sales department staff (Heather & Katie) were excellent, always checking in on our different events to make certain everything was okay and if anything else was needed. They even responded to a request for a loaner refrigerator for one of our rooms and immediately obtained one for each of our 3 hotel rooms. I really appreciated that level of service.
The wait staff in all of our events, I feel went over and above serving our every need and were extremely polite and friendly.
I want to make certain that you please tell everyone what a great job they all did in making our events a success.

Attention to detail, it sets you apart from the competition
I just wanted to let you know our event went off flawlessly last night thanks to the wonderful , hard-working staff at The Clarion! Our server, Beth, was amazing! She made sure everything.. from the temperature of the room to the temperature of the food… was perfect for our guests. When I had questions regarding the AV sound set-up of the room, Jesse quickly stepped in and helped make changes to make the room more conducive to our presentation. When I needed a stapler and staple puller, your front desk staff was quick to offer their office supplies to help me out… and finally, when the entire event was over, I went back to my extremely clean hotel room, where I collapsed into my comfortable bed and fell asleep instantly! All in all it was a wonderful experience! Thank you to you and your wonderful staff and their attention to detail. It sets you apart from the competition!

A number of my friends and I recently spend some time in early September at your hotel. I was the coordinator for our group which was known as the ‘Bitburg Reunion.’ For the past two years, I also was the one who put forth New England as a place to visit. Last, but not least, I selected Portland, ME as our destination.
Early in my search I requested the Convention Bureau send out two emails to a number of hotel. The emails, I think, were called a ‘request for proposal’. In addition to price, I asked for other reasons I should choose that hotel. The one thing that Mrs. Levesque did that none of the other respondents did not do, was she reached out and called me. we spoke of many areas of interest. I late told my wife, ‘Mrs. Levesque understands me and what I wish to accomplish’.
Aside from the convention bureau sending the request for proposals, Mrs. Levesque was the most singular reason I eventually chose your hotel. She had the answers or quickly found them. She is an outstanding asset to your hotel. The reason I make that statement is that in my opinion is an exceptional person, doing a superior job in a very competitive environment.

You need to know how much we really appreciated all the work, support and just overwhelming hospitality your hotel staff gave us and the clean facility you have. Your staff is wonderful. You made our USS Stoddard Reunion a very memorable one. I spoke with all the veterans, and they said by far visiting Portland, and staying at your hotel, made it very welcoming to each and all.
Heather, thank you for helping each and everyone, your staff is wonderful, your breakfast as well as the other meals that people enjoyed in your restaurant were unbelievable. You went above and beyond, and we were told that if we ever hosted another reunion here in Portland, that they sure hope you would be the hotel of choice, of course, it would be.
I know you will always get complaints, but I wonder if you hear the other side, where we can’t thank you enough for what you did for us.
