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

Booked a river side one bed room apartment. Room a good size and very clean. It was as it was many years ago when we stayed, but still very good. Location perfect for our meal at Crown. Parking excellent! Easy to do and incredibly handy! We had happy hour drinks and they were gre

Absolute worst sleep I've ever had in my life. An alarm at the building next door has been going off all night. Called the front desk, they tell me "It's not our building." Yeah, I realize that, but do something about it! Call the police! Call the management of the other building

Location is good. 10-30min walks to most part of CPD. Hotel rooms a bit old. Cleaning average. Breakfast limited choice. Staff helpful in booking of yours & taxi but did not hand over to other staff the next day. Can be improved in this area.

Dear TT C, Thank you for your post and also for staying with us. I do apologise for the miscommunication, your comments we receive with much appreciation, as a means of improving our service delivery. We are of the view of continuous service improvement as an ongoing practice, our ultimate goal is to exceed your expectation & experience at our hotel. We would like to therefore assure you of our commitment to this process. Most hotels refurbish within a 7/10 year turnaround period, we completed our fit-out during early 2015, therefore, we are unlikely to embark on another program so soon, though, we do recognize personal aesthetic appeal may differ. Our full hot & cold full breakfast offer, is also complemented with our a la carte options and of particular popularity, we recommend our, Williams Big Breakfast, this will satisfy the most discerning appetite. I would also like to take this opportunity in recommending our ,One William Club program, great discounts are available as well as an ongoing recognition based on return stays. It would also be remiss of me not to mention our unique location & views, just opposite the world’s largest nightly on the hour fireball show, hoping that you stayed in a room/suite with this view and of the Yarra River. May we have the pleasure of welcoming you back on your next visit to our lovely City. Kind Regards Customer Service Team

As you drive into the Melbourne CBD and look at the hotel from the outside, against the backdrop of the modern Melbourne skyline, you could easily be fooled into thinking that the Clarion Suites Gateway is old and run-down.

However as the saying goes…Don’t judge a book by it’s c

Have used the Clarion Suites many times during Melbourne's Spring Carnival and for the AFL too. It is always clean, very well maintained but be aware that there are over-bath showers in many of the rooms. Bathroom was large, kitchenette functional, suites have plenty of power p

Is there free parking at the premises or close by?
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.

Do you have a gym/workout room? I've seen no pics of a gym out of all the pics posted.
No gym to my knowledge but there are two commercial gyms located with 150 metres of the Clarion.
