Very clean spacious room. Yarra

Very clean spacious room. Yarra View room proved to be a little bit noisy, however, once bedroom door was shut as suggested this did quieten down the noise considerably. This was my second visit to Clarion Suites Gateway, and would consider staying here again, but will not request a Yarra View room again. First stay was so much more quieter.

Easy access to Melbourne Aquarium

Easy access to Melbourne Aquarium and Crown Casino. Room is spacious. Air conditioning seems a little problem during our first night of stay. However, it was fixed the next day. Free beer treat from the hotel which is very nice!

We found the room clean and well

We found the room clean and well laid out - thought, strangely, the handbasin and mirror are not in the bathroom but outside near the kitchen area. Were automatically upgraded to a river view room. Location was excellent - right on the Yarra and with the free city circle tram virtually outside the front door. Reception efficient and pleasant.
