    We had a lovely stay at Clarion Suites Gateway and were upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was lovely...overlooking the Yarra and Casino. Rooms are very quiet and we loved the balcony to go out and get fresh air. Beds were comfy and warm. Enjoyed our breaky downstairs!!

    The location

    The room deco are old and boring. Very bad isolation from one room to the other. I had to change room immediately when my neighbour took a shower. Noise of water was so strong that I thought we took shower together. Internet installation is bad. Place to work is too small. I had problems with my laundry which was not picked up the first day, and not given back on time the day after.

    When paying over $300.00 per night, there is much better value for money in Melbourne's CBD. The room was small, dark, on a low floor and right next to the elevator which transferred noise directly into the room. Much better value for money would be to pay for the cheaper rooms at the Westin or Stamford hotels (just two examples), as these rooms would be more comfortable and better value.

    staff

    No in-room wi-fi!!!!! How can that be in 2012???? Even the wi-fi in the common areas was down. This is no longer a luxury but rather a necessity for our daily lives.

    Good

    Staff was friendly and the location was convenient to the CBD. If I didn't pay extra for the river view I would NOT have enjoyed it as the train passes directly in front of the hotel.

    It was functional. Nothing spectacular. You pay for what you get - literally. The indoor pool is only a metre-deep lap pool and is dated. The room itself was fine, but again nothing that knocked my socks off. It was a functional hotel room.
