Had a stay last week in Melbourne as I had to do some Training until late.Bed was comforatable and the room was spotless. We also got a free bottle of wine as part of a package which was chilled. I have stayed here before as our son used to be a chef at this Hotel. Good size flat screen Television with Austar.
I thought it was well located as close to train station, trams and restaurants. Good value for money for a Capital city,

Room Tip: Ask about a view as the rooms with a view are stunning, Melbourne is always beautiful at night.

Stayed for five nights and stay was faultless. Hotel is opposite the Crowne Casino and also nearby Melbourne Aquarium. Free City tram picks up nearby as well and walking distance to main central shops in Melbourne.
Indoor swimming pool was handy.
Breakfast was very good and in particular the attention from friendly waiting staff. Very good stay and recommended.

Room Tip: River facing rooms enable you to see the Casino and the "flames show" each evening.

Just got home from my stay at Clarion Gateway and I'm really pleased with my stay. I was looking for a centrally located 1br apartment but with full-service features (bar, restaurant) and Clarion delivered. The 1br apartment had everything (except a bath) - it was cosy but elegant and comfortable. Gas cooking, 2 TVs, a tiny balcony for fresh air, a washing machine etc etc. The service was great too. Cafe menu/bar menu was pretty standard, but the service was efficient. Definitely the best combination of value, service and features I've found in Melbourne.

The Clarion is in an excellent location for exploring Melbourne. There are fantastic views from front facing rooms of the city and the river. Staff were very helpful, friendly and courteous. Room was spotless and comfortable with handy tea making facilities etc. We thought the washing/drying room was such a practical addition, especially for travellers coming from as far afield as Scotland! Next time we visit Oz we'll pack less and take home more! Hotel Manager took seriously a suggestion on my feedback form and I have had really pleasant contact with hotel personnel since! I would certainly stay at the Clarion again if back in Melbourne.

Room Tip: Higher floors and front facing rooms with a river view are worth asking for!
