The clue is in the name - it provides a suite of rooms, and is therefore not a Budget Hotel, but when you are staying for more than a few days in one place, it is just ideal. The price was acceptable, the suite fantastic. The hotel put me in a room overlooking the River Yarra - very well positioned,... More

Loved every day we spent here when we were in Melbourne. Very strategically located . Clean spacious apartment rooms with all the necessary amenities. The restaurant was good too. The breakfast served to us daily was a bit monotonous but ticked the right boxes . The views of the City from the 13th floor were stunning The trams lines, Railways... More

Located at CBD, Clarion suites is just 10-minute to every well-known place. I stayed in 14th floor. The view was awesome! You may see Yarra River and South Gate Station. Also, the staff at front desk offered help to book restaurant. So sweet. Thanks!

Had an excellent 3 night stay at the Clarion Suites Gateway, travelling with my partner and both our mothers. We stayed in an enormous 2 bedroom apartment (made up of a studio and 1 bedroom apartment with a shared lobby) featuring 4 very comfortable single beds, air conditioning, work desk, 3 TV's, 2 large bathrooms and lounge.

Picked this out of the hundreds on offer as the price was good and location seemed to be ok. When I arrived I was happy that I did, as the location was fantastic and an easy walk across the river to restaurants at the crown complex and tram lines around the city! The apartment was spacious and balcony gave us... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The place is smart, very clean, bright and warm. The view from our room onto the river was fantastic, especially at the nightly flames from the embankment opposite, seemed as though they were glowing in sequence, a sight to see.

Stayed at this hotel for a work conference. It was reasonably priced, clean and fresh rooms and good reception service. Also located near some good lunch and dinner restaurants. I have put it on my list for next time.

Stayed in the Crown View penthouse for our anniversary. Absolutely amazing! Great apartment- clean and tasteful decor. Best views of Melbourne- the flames outside Crown put on a great show. Thanks to the staff for their high level of service and attention to detail. Will certainly return!

The room was adequate with a small kitchenette that had just the essentials. Apartment was tidy and clean. The balcony off the bedroom was useless as the air con unit took it up and was unpleasant to look at. Not happy when the cleaning staff ate our chocolates from the bowl we put in the lounge.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
