I stayed at the Clarion Suites for one night three weeks in a row for work purposes and it is the best I hotel I have stayed in which has been booked through work channels.

This Hotel is truly the best in Melbourne CBD. We have stayed here on numerous occasions and every time is without fault. We have tried other hotels in the area to compare and have a change, but no more, they don't come close to the friendly staff with checkin and checkout. We have stayed in both studio apartment and this... More

My husband and I stayed here with one of our teenage daughters for 4 nights. The lobby is bright and modern and check-in was efficient and friendly. We were given apartment numbers 8041 and 8042. There was a main door from the corridor into a small lobby and then a door into each apartment which meant that when the main... More

Fantastic hotel in great location. I had a work function on early the next morning so was able to get a later check out. Had the one bedroom suite with the great views over Yarra river. Buffet breakfast was delicious and so much to choose from. Highly recommend this wonderful hotel .

Hotel room was good sized, although the bathrooms were small. Our room had a beautiful view of the river. Friendly staff. Close to public transportation. Even though the hotel was downtown, it was quiet for the location.

The room is quiet, spacious and comfortable. The tramstop is just nearby and you can take the tram easily. It is not situated at the crowded street so there won't be disturbing noise at night. There is a small warm pool but we hadn't got a chance to swim.

Had two-nights here in a one-bedroom suite that I thought excellent. Central location and efficient and friendly reception desk. Suite offered plenty of space, kitchen was spotless and well appointed, and bedroom and bathroom were both of a reasonable size. The suites are very close to Flinders St but I was pleased that the noise from trains and trams rattling... More

We stayed here for three nights and our room was clean and well appointed with a small kitchenette. The King bed was quite comfortable and the location is excellent. We had a nice view of the Yarra River looking over Crown Casino and Southbank. The Williams Bar & Grill on the ground floor is good for breakfast. There are several... More

Stayed here for 7 nights while attending a conference. We had the one bedroom apartment which was perfect. As it was a long stay it was nice to have somewhere to chill out and eat other than the bedroom. The staff were quite helpful.

We stayed 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment with kitchenette. Very comfortable with nice decor and fairly spacious. The parking is somewhat expensive $27 per night and it's right next to the apartments - need to use intercom to enter and exit.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
