I can't say anything but... I love this place. Everything from check in to check out was flawless. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly, the rooms are lovely and it's a great location. The set out of the room is perfect... spacious, clean, plenty of wardrobe space, sink and mirror not in the actual bathroom so you...

I booked using secret hotels on Expedia and was very pleased with the booking. Clarion Suites Gateway is located centrally and there is lots of things to do in the area. The suites are beautifully decorated and nicely set up with all that you would need for a couple of nights potentially more.

Nice suite with massive outdoor patio, Shame that it was to noisy due to generators to sit out. Very nice sitting area and kitchen, washer a bonus. Conveniently positioned to be able to get to most places. Night market was really good. Breakfast very nice. Wi-Fi difficult to connect but staff helpful and sorted it out for us.

When we first checked in, there were short curlies, (hair) on the bathroom floor. We also found a large stain on the duvet cover. The rest of the room was very nice. You do have to pay for WiFi and for Parking. For the most expensive hotel we've paid for in Australia, we expected more. There staff was very friendly,...

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.
