Hotel's Favorite
We visit Melbourne as a family around 4 times a year and generally stay elsewhere, but with all that is going on our usual hotel was closed. We looked around for a alternative and came across the Clarion Suites which seemed to suit our needs. We like a hotel centrally located to the DFO's and Bourke Street and this suited nicely. The front desk staff were very welcoming and because we asked for a nice view they upgraded us to a better room for free. The rooms are a lot more spacious than our usual hotel which was a nice surprise. The room included a kitchen and dinning table which was great to bring meals back and eat. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Parking was easy and onsite which was great. I think we have found a new place to stay on our visits to Melbourne and highly recommend to family's.

We stayed in room 1371 which was a large room with washing machine,fridge and tea and coffee together with a great shower which made us feel at home. The location is good with with easy access to the trams (free on the inner city) and other sites within walking distance. Breakfast is the usual cereals or cooked and you can have your eggs as you like.

Clarion Suites Hotel is well situated in the centre of Melbourne, with good tram transport. The room was spacious and clean, with a microwave, fridge, kettle and a small cooker and with a great view of the Yarra river, the Aquarium , the Eureka building and beyond. Breakfast is good with strawberries and noodles amongst other things to eat. The check in was fine with Alison providing two tram cards for us. This is a fantastic touch as the hotel recycles the tram cards that other guests leave so that new guests can use them. The hotel does not know how much money is left in the cards so you may have to top it up but in our case one card Aus$17 and the other Aus$13 left. It should be noted that trams in the city centre are free for all but I can not stress how sweet it is to find a hotel that tries to make its guests feel comfortable. Alison, was also very helpful in getting some information for our onward journey with Qantas. Alison was a complete angle and we would have no hesitation in returning to this great hotel on our next trip to Melbourne.

We had a stay of four nights at this hotel. When we arrived they knew our name,booking in was easy and quick. Our room was on the 8th floor overlooking the river. The suite was wonderful, living area, kitchenette, nice bathroom with shower etc. there was also washing machine, ironing board etc. the bedroom was a good size. The room was very clean. There is a happy hour each day. The staff in the bar were always pleasant. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful, Thomas always remembered our names. We left an item of clothing and when we got to our next destination I rang the hotel and Thomas remembered us and arranged for the item to be forwarded to an onward destination and sure enough the item awaited us. Great hotel, friendly staff, great location about 10 min walk to Flanders Street Station. Would recommend this hotel.
