“Great views on river side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011

Great view of river and casino. Good hotel and great staff Can get some noise from trains as they pass. Close to cbd and easy parking. Prices have jumped up this year. Sadly better value elsewhere.

My wife and I recently stayed here for the second time (one week last year and 8 nights this year) and on both occasions we booked a 1 bedroom riverview deluxe suite which was ideal for our requirements. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the room was always clean and we appreciated finding the teas and coffees and bathroom toiletries etc. topped up every day. We liked the location, an easy short walk into the heart of the city and just across the river from South Bank and the Casino complex. We were very comfortable here and will be staying here again. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the views.

Only stayed one night, while attending a conference at the Melbourne Convention Centre. Centrally located, a short walk to the convention centre, and close to the city centre for having a nice look around in my spare time. Staff were very lovely and welcoming. The room was very clean and spacious, and had lovely view of the river. My only comment was the vanity for the bathroom could have been bigger. A very comfortable stay.

I found Clarion Suites Apartments staff to be so welcoming and friendly making us all feel welcomed and invited. My children were greeted kindly and my husband and I felt very comfortable talking to the staff ranging from room service, front desk and restaurant. I didn't realise how close it was to Crown Casino and at a fraction of the price of other hotels nearby. I will definitely be staying there again! Thanks again Clarion Suites and especially Thomas he was awesome!

I found this hotel to be in the perfect location for both entertainment and shopping in Melbourne. The staff could not do enough and even though we arrived way before book in time in Melbourne they took care of our luggage while we went shopping and upon our return it was in our room. If you stay pay a few extra dollars and get a river view room as the view of the southbank fire colums was spectacular.

The staff at Clarion Suites Gateway, once again surprised us by upgrading our stay to the Penthouse! We were absolutely flabbergasted by the service, standard and sleep quality at the hotel! The hotel is situated across the road from the Aquarium, near the Crown casino and within walking distanc eof Meblounre Central. What a pleasure to stay there when one has to go to Melbourne for business OR pleasure. Thanks again to the staff at Clarion Suites Gateway!
