This hotel is a very nice place. We were visiting from the States and we stayed at this hotel the first night we arrived down under. Our flight from LA got in early in the morning, so we got to the hotel around 10am. There was a line to check in/out, but when we got to the front desk the room was half ready. We had a two bedroom suite, which is composed of a studio suite and a one-bedroom suite that connect. Our studio part was ready, so we went there and dropped our stuff off. We went and explored the CBD while our other room was being made up. The 1-Bedroom suite is a HUGE upgrade from the studio suite, it is about three times bigger. The hotel is really quite well located. The free City Circle tram runs right outside the hotel, and it shows you the city well. The hotel has charge internet, although the exact charge in not clear.
We booked our room through the hotel's website, clarionsuitesgateway.com.au , rather than the international Clarion website. Our rate was about a third cheaper, and we got a riverview suite, which was unavailable according to the Clarion site.
All in all, it is a great hotel, and I would recommend this hotel to business or family travelers.
