4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

This was our home for 7 days. Thankfully we were upgraded to a river view room which gave gorgeous views over the Yarra to Southbank. The room was spacious, a seperate bedroom, lounge, kitchenette and bathroom. There is only a shower (no bath), but this didn't really make any difference. The rooms were cleaned nicely and the decor was understated... More

Clarion Suites Gateway shall remain my go-to hotel for Melbourne. It's close to everything you need, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean and have fantastic views over the Yarra River (in river view rooms). There may be a number of hotels in the area that also meet that description however the staff at the Clarion set the experience above... More

Great location in the city. 10 minute walk to Casino or Fed Square. Parking was roughly $25 a day which is great for its location. Lifts were a little slow because of renovations but was not a worry. Would definitely stay again if visiting the Melbourne CBD. Free coffee and cookies in the foyer!

This location was sensational. Right in the heart of Melbourne overlooking the Yarra. Bed was comfortable nice little balcony. Heater worked well in the middle of winter. Very spacious room with full kitchen facilities. Within walking distance to all main attractions in Melbourne.

The exterior & the foyer of the Clarion Suites Gateway on the corner of Flinders & William Sts in Melbourne bely the quality of the rooms. The Suite was well appointed and my room (at least) had an brilliant aspects looking across the Yarra to the south. The location is also excellent. The breakfast was so so, but certainly passable...

Large rooms, cozy & comfortable beds. Very well equipped with microwave, kitchen crockery & other amenities. Good view of the city. Its location is very good, walking distance from business centres. Chinese casino is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel.

We have stayed here a couple of times, just for some time out, or to see a show etc.. Great value for money. Slightly out of the way from the theatres etc., but trams make most things in the CBD handy. We have used the one bedroom and two bedroom suites (this is a combination of a one bedroom suite...

On the 15th floor, paid a bit extra for Southbank view, which was lovely but small. Doors to balcony locked. Very comfy beds, reasonably quiet. Clean room, looks like there's been an update recently. Good location. Acc con took a while to warm the room up.
