Very impressed with Clarion Suites!
First stayed at Clarion Suites 4 weeks ago to be in walking distance of Le Vue de Monde where we were attending a Birthday dinner. The location was fantastic and the service we received was excellent. Room facilities were excellent also including a fabulous shower. Stayed at Clarion again 1 week ago to be in walking distance of Crown for another function. Again the reception staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Our accomodation was just as good as the first stay. Emailed Clarion and requested car parking on both occasions. My emails were quickly responded to confirming car parking would be made available for us. We regularly stay in Melbourne for business and pleasure and would certainly recommend Clarion as a great place to stay. Top value for money! Well done Clarion Suites.

My Go-To place for Melbourne CBD
This was my third visit to this hotel, and it will remain my place of choice for the foreseeable future. It is easy to walk to from where the Skybus terminates (though Skybus have a free hotel drop off as well from the terminal). I usually arrive before the posted check-in time, but the Clarion staff always seem to find me a room that fits my request - including my preferences which they have noted and kept on file from previous visits. I tested this by NOT mentioning I prefer high floors for noise reasons on this latest booking, and despite making this booking through a different agency (wotif) this time, they knew my preferences, so this is a hotel thing and I appreciate the attention to detail. The room was bigger than the last two visits, so not sure if it was an upgrade or because of my early check-in or if wotif have better deals. Whatever, it was consistent with previous visits - clean and quiet - and has the well stocked kitchenette which is one of the main reasons I love this place. Don't want to eat out every night? Don't worry, they have a small glass bowl for the Greek salad mix you picked up from Woolies and they have a sharp knife for those extra tomatoes that you want to add. And that sneaky tub of ice cream will stay frozen in the full refrigerator. And there is a microwave for that packet of popcorn you have in you suitcase for those late night munchies. They have long life mini milks in the fridge and tea and coffee sachets. Also salt, pepper and sugar.

Very good 8.0
I liked pretty much everything about this place. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast food/drink choices were plentiful, left with a full stomach. The location was totally perfect for planned etc. activities. Slight drawbacks was heating/cooling system even with instructions in the room still could not get to suitable temperature. The sound of the passing trains caused some discomfort, but this was alleviated when on the second night I stayed on the 14th floor. The view of my hometown was even better at this level.

A great overnight stay.
We had a great overnight stay at Clarion Suites and would highly recommend this hotel. It is so central and close to everything, including the tram. We faced William Street so there were no problems with Train noise. The breakfast was tasty and suitable for all but if you don’t want to eat in the restaurant the kitchenette in the room is adequate for a basic breakfast. The staff were friendly and the home made biscuits are a nice touch.
