stayed for one night over labour day weekend and was totally impressed. We stayed in a one bedroom suite with a view of the river and it ticked all the boxes. Very clean , enough space. The washing machine in the kitchen was an added bonus. The balcony with the view was fantastic. The bed was pretty comfortable and the bathroom was quite large. Our check in and check out was smooth with the reception people extremely nice and helpful. We had a few drinks in the adjacent bar/restaurant and thought it was quite nice although we did not eat any food from there. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to other people looking for a place to stay in melbourne with an A+ location close to everything.

Room Tip: The river view rooms are a must

We really enjoyed our stay in a 2 bedroom apartment over looking the Yarra. Great for a family stay. The apartment was huge! We had a corner room and it was bright and sunny in the morning, the double windows blocked out any road noise.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Clarion and our room was adjacent to the lifts. unfortunately, one lift was being repaired leaving the second one making a noise which was a little disturbing. Even though the Hotel was almost full, reception managed to find us another room for the night which was superb. The Customer Service was faultless and even though the Hotel is shortly to be refurbished, we found it very clean and extremely comfortable. Great bar, great restaurant and sensational service. We shall return. Thank you.

Room Tip: Pay that little extra for a yarra view room, it is well worth it.

We recently had a wedding at the Crown Complex, we decided to stay in the top floor Penthouse of this hotel, fantastic spacious room with everything and great views of the city. We had 3 couples staying in the 3 bedroom suite and all commented on how good accommodation was along with breakfast buffet the next morning.

Would reccomend this to all friends

Room Tip: Face the Yarra River for good views

We booked into a Studio Riverview room and were on the 15th floor, it was a Saturday night and we paid $301.99. There was a huge festival on (White nite) In Melbourne and the room rates everywhere we tried were very high (some as high as $800 a night, for example), and this was reasonable in comparison and had a very central location on Flinders Street. Loved having a view of the river. The hotel was slightly older than some we had stayed in but the room had everything we needed, and included a desk with a chair, a table with 2 chairs for eating at, AND a two seater settee - great! Perfect if on business. It was also spacious. Also a microwave, "kitchen sink", a fridge, etc all behind a cupboard so no noise. Also a bathroom, with a shower and a bath together, plus a sink in a separate area which is a bonus - can still clean your teeth or put your makeup on while someone is on the toilet! There was no problem with noise from the street or railways, as they had two lots of double glazing on the windows, there was an occasional low rumble from a train but this was quieter than the airconditioning in many hotels. Their airconditioning was quiet. The people on the front desk were consistently superb both days - so happy and helpful - Diem was outstanding and Tom too. Thank you! Yes I'd be happy to stay here again especially for work.

2nd time we have stayed here and always have a Deluxe One Bedroom Riverview Suite. It is just a perfect location with fantastic views with the floor to ceiling windows over looking the Yarra and Crown complex. The room, the food, the facilities and the cleanliness of the whole hotel is first class. What a delight to have beautiful clean towels every day. The access to transport is wonderful with a tram stop within mins away and Crown Casino a 5min walk. Thank you for our wonderful stay can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a river view room well worth the extra $$$
