I recently visited from the US with my wife and 2 small children...We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Clarion Suites Gateway...the staff was always friendly and helpful. The room (1 bedroom suite) had an incredible river view, and was very clean and modern. We especially appreciated having the washer/dryer in the unit...when we got home after 2 weeks in Australia, we had bags of clean clothes. Instead of buying the detergent at the front desk for $2/load, we walked to the grocery store and bought a box for $4. The location is excellent...easy to catch public transit and very near the activities. The pool was also great. I can't speak highly enough about our stay, and I would not hesitate to return. The only suggestion that I have for them is to upgrade wireless internet to include the rooms and not just the lobby.

Room Tip: Get one with a washer/dryer if you have kids.

The Clarion was the first hotel we checked into on our first trip to Australia. Check in was easy. Staff VERY nice and helpful. We had a very nice room overlooking the Yarra River. This hotel rooms very clean. Nice pool, nice breakfast included in our four day stay. Internet available at the hotel too. It was a very good location to get around Melbourne! No need for a car here! You are in walking distance of the free trams and other transportation. Across the street is the Melbourne Aquarium, Crown Casino and many places to eat on Southbank. Walking up to Federation Square is a few blocks away and alot of shopping. The information center is there too and they are so helpful with anything you need to know about Melbourne. Suggest you take a bus ride to St. Kilda's, just a little out of Melbourne. Beautifull town with gorgeous beach, beachside resturants, shopping. The Clarion is a nice hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Hope to return sometime...

Room Tip: We had a nice view of the river but would of loved a balcony as some rooms have, we love to sit out at night, and it is a lovely view if you get a riverside room!

I recently visited melbourne & stayed at the Clarion. It is a regular stay for us as we find it friendly, clean & reliable as well as convenient to Southbank & the City, Docklands & transport hubs.

Depending on timing of our visits, prices can be very reasonable too.

Room Tip: Stay away from anything ending in 81 as that is next to the lifts. Best rooms are with views over the Yarra & Southbank

Second time at the clarion gateway. Excellent location, great staff especially the restaurant great rooms and quiet - being so close to the river and railway you would never know they were there. Planning the next trip and bringing a couple of friends. Can Highly recommend.
