Reviewed 29 December 2012

The rooms are quite spacious and the bed comfortable. The double sliding doors also kept the room very quiet while also allowing you fresh air when you wanted it. The location was good. The service was excellent - free upgrade to a river view room, very fast check-in/out and very friendly reception staff. If I hadn't read the TripAdvisor reviews...

Loved this hotel. We booked through Wotif and got a great price for overnight stay. We opted for a riverview room, which had a lovely view across the river to Crown Casino. The room itself was very clean, bed and pillows were very comfortable, the shower was amazing (the only downside being it was over a bath). We chose not...

We recently stayed at the Clarion Suites and booked through Wotif. We were a little disappointed on entering our room as it felt quite out-dated and dull. We had a 1 bedroom apartment and had the kids on the sofa lounge. The sofa lounge was in very bad condition and the kids simply rolled into the middle on top of...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
