Brilliant apartment
Stayed in a great one bed apartment. Very clean and good quality services in the apartment. Very comfortable bedroom and nicely equipped kitchen. The front desk staff were exceptional, in particular Thomas & Jana. Good location for access to the CBD and transport links to travel further.

Convenient location, good breakfast
Great hotel. Nothing fancy, rooms are quite large, check in and out are very quick. Breakfast is good, though I expected a bit more choice for a 4.5 star hotel.

Enjoyable melbourne stay
Friendly, helpful staff. Great location for a trip to Melbourne. Short walk to Flinders Station, Sea Life, China Town and many other locations. Very comfortable suite. Perfect for a young family. The swimming pool was quite cold so we only used it once. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant so I can't give a review about that. I would definitely stay in the Clarion Suites again

Great service
Very friendly staff. Check in and out was so simple also got an upgrade from a room to a room,lounge and kitchen. Staff were helpful for things to do and questions around parking. We were able to keep our car parked at the hotel for a few hrs after checkout while we explored too.
