Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for sharing your valuable and constructive comments, it will allow us to focus on the areas which require immediate improvements. It is regrettable to hear that not all aspects of your stay were enjoyable and we do apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment that you experienced during your recent stay with us. The quality of service provided at Clarion Suites Gateway is of the utmost importance to us, and I would like to affirm to you that we will ensure your feedback is addressed diligently. Regrettably parking in the building at times does pose a challenge. The building is a refurbishment fit-out, and I believe that no modifications or improvements were introduced in the car park area, therefore, the car park standard and layout is of a vintage design, which would make it very difficult to develop. We look forward to welcoming you back to Clarion Suites Gateway in the near future. Kind Regards

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for choosing Clarion Suites Gateway for your vacation in Melbourne. It is pleasing to read that you enjoyed our location, our suite, as well as the fantastic views overlooking Southbank precincts, the Yarra River and Casino Gas Brigades of eight towers which are recognized as the largest fireball flames that shoot into the evening skyline, a spectacular experience. This is what we like to call a bit of Las Vegas on our door step. We look forward to welcoming you back to Clarion Suites Gateway in the near future. Kind Regards
