Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

The room itself was large enough to accommodate me and a friend (twin suite) and we were given a complementary drinks voucher and discount voucher for breakfast on arrival which was nice!

Room was clean and tidy and had a nice view of the river. Fridge in the room was a nice addition too.

My major issue with the room was the constant noise from the train station and tracks behind the hotel. Despite the thick windows and additional screen it was constant noise so if you’re a light sleeper this isn’t for you! Plus the walls are pretty thin so we could head next door quite a bit

Didn’t have breakfast included but we paid for it in the restaurant downstairs - buffet choice was good and it included cooked to order eggs - the poached eggs and sourdough toast were delicious!

On the whole - nice room, good location, but too noisy in the room we had from train noise. I wouldn’t stay again unless I could guarantee a room away from the station side

This was our first time at Clarion Suites and it certainly won’t be the last. The location is perfect, just near the river and trams, the room (a self-contained apartment really!) was spacious and had everything we could need for a lovely 2-night getaway. Bed was so comfortable and the river views esp at night were wonderful.
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast on both mornings and could not have been happier about our choice of hotel
The swimming pool was clean and really enjoyable for a few laps after a day sightseeing
Thank you to Thomas for the careful attention to everything and for the extra special touches to help us celebrate our anniversary

We stayed at the Clarion Suites from Friday 6 May until Thursday 12 May 2022 in a one bedroom apartment overlooking the river and Southbank, we have stayed here once before a few years back. We were in Melbourne for a family wedding. The Clarion is a great hotel, in a great location with easy access to Melbourne's CBD and all its attractions. The 1 bedroom suites are spacious and well laid out, with the front facing rooms having views over the river and Southbank, the towels are changed daily, the staff are all friendly and very helpful. This would have been a 5 star rating except that our room while technically having views of the river and Southbank, being on level 6 all you really get is a great view of the railway line, we had family staying here (on our recommendation) who were on levels 9 and 10 and they had great views. However overall this did not greatly impact our stay.

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 coupled this city break with a concert attendance and it was the perfect mini-break away from the hussle and bussle of work/family life. The Clarion Suites were clean and adequately spacious. Full kitchen with everything we needed and the 2 bedrooms allowed us to share the experience with friends.

We have stayed at Clarion Suites a couple of times, and we will definitely be going back when we have nights in the city. The suites are huge and have all the comforts of home. The king size bed was very comfortable. The whole place is really clean. The location is second to none. You can easily walk anywhere in the city from the central location. It is in William St, so it's right in the heart of town. Parking is on offer in their carpark for a fee, so it's very convenient. The price is comparable to other hotels where you only get a single room.

Parking is onsite (and also other 3rd party options available nearby) onsite is park yourself and secure, with access available to your car and to come and go as you please 24/7. This is however a fee for this though. That being said, it is very convenient and one of the reasons I choose to stay at the clarion when in Melbourne is the parking facility.
