"Perfect Wedding Reception"
We had our wedding reception at The Clarion and had a pleasant experience from start to finish. Working with Richard our event coordinator made things a lot easier. He pays attention to detail, is extremely helpful and responds to any questions immediately. Mike the banquet manager was also a pleasure to deal with and gave excellent suggestions on menu options and wine. He ensured everything ran smoothly the day of and went over and above. The execution and the food at the reception was excellent. The renovations at The Clarion were completed as scheduled and gave a fresh clean modern look to the hall. We also enjoyed a complimentary suite for our wedding night that was part of the renovation. The room also had a modern clean, fresh look and was very spacious. The bed and furniture was very comfortable and the bathroom and shower were also spacious. Overall we had a fantastic experience and would recommend The Clarion to other couples looking for a wedding reception venue.
"Beautiful Wedding Reception”
We just had our wedding reception at the Clarion and it was absolutely perfect. Both Richard Summerton and Mike Episcopo were a pleasure to work with and extremely accommodating to our requirements. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a perfect reception.
The room itself was recently renovated and it is clean and bright and we chose white and ivory table settings and it looked absolutely stunning. The team at the Clarion worked with our wedding planner and they helped her out tremendously - great teamwork!
Our wedding was a mix of Italian and Greek so we had some particular requests for food. The food was delicious! They helped us tailor our menu - starting with family style antipasta, a pasta dish, Greek salad, chicken and dessert. Plus we had an espresso bar. Everything was presented beautifully, delicious, and service was on time and excellent.
The rooftop access was also a huge selling feature - it has amazing views of Winnipeg and we got a spectacular evening sunset. Our photographer and videographers were both impressed with the location. We are waiting for the photos and video but I know they will be spectacular. The rooftop access is an amazing option for couples - I highly recommend it!
We got a free hotel room and use of the pool facilities the following day - which was the perfect start to our marriage. It was relaxing and fun to be able to swim and be in the hot tubs - what a treat!! We also got a bottle of champagne, which was very lovely. The room was gorgeous, modern, and clean - huge bathroom! We got married on a Sunday so it was really quiet the next day - perfect to settle down after a long planning process and wedding day.
The service overall was outstanding - from the wedding coordination to the wait staff and the front desk. Everyone was accommodating and friendly. Free parking too. Our guests had a great time, I've received nothing but compliments. Thank you Richard, Mike and all at the Clarion!!

“The Best Guest Services Experts in the City!”
Upon arrival at the Clarion, you will be blown away by how beautiful this establishment is. Impeccable attention to detail is what sets this hotel apart from any other in the city. From the moment you walk in you will be warmly welcomed by the incredibly friendly and efficient front desk staff. We were there for a week, and Kiri was the best part of our day! What a fantastic ambassador for the Clarion Hotel. All staff were very attentive to our needs. Meeting rooms were set up exactly as we requested. Water glasses were never empty. No lugging around any equipment because their meeting rooms are state of the art and have everything you need. Guestrooms were luxurious and the literal walk across the street to the best shopping centre in the city is an incredible bonus. Their gym boasts more equipment than many gyms I have visited and here's a catch, they have in house trainers, massage and physiotherapist all housed under one roof. With free airport shuttle, WIFI, parking and a spa and restaurant built right into the hotel. You never have to leave the building! Need a great place to stay in Winnipeg? Look no further than the Clarion Hotel. We came in as a guest, and left feeling like family. Thank you Clarion Staff for your incredible customer service, attention to detail and fantastic overall guest experience.
