In the city center, within walking distance of Old Town
Clarion Hotel Stavanger isn't right in the heart of the city center, but it's still within walking distance of popular sights.
Stavanger is a small city with charm to spare. Old Town is one of the most appealing historic areas in all of Norway, with cobbled streets, quaint white wooden houses, and flowering gardens. The city also has the advantage of being close to both beaches and skiing: In fact, it's possible to drive to the slopes in the morning and hit up the beaches in the afternoon. Boat trips to the Lysefjord depart right from the harbor; though the Lysefjord is not as famous as the Sognefjord, it's still very beautiful and access is more convenient. For cultural attractions, Stavanger offers several interesting museums, including the Canning Museum and the Petroleum Museum. (Stavanger is a hub for businesspeople in the oil industry.)
The 249-room Clarion Hotel Stavanger is a stylish hotel just a short walk from many of Stavanger's sights, including the Breiavatnet Lake, Stavanger Cathedral, and the main wharf with its colorful bars and restaurants. While the hotel doesn't boast many amenities, it does have 11 meeting spaces, including a sleek board room with panoramic views and a main hall that can hold up to 720 people. The large restaurant space off the lobby serves free breakfast before turning into a full-service restaurant later in the day , and also serves as the hotel's bar.
