I have just returned from a five night stay at the Crowne Plaza in Melbourne with my daughter and was very happy with all aspects of our stay there. As the tennis was on at the time, hotel rooms were hard to come by and our usual choice of hotel was not available. I chose Crowne Plaza for its location... More

The river view rooms at the western end of the hotel are the pick in terms of quite new but the view is best from the eastern end. If you're on the eastern end though you need to be on the higher floors otherwise there is street noise. The beds are really comfortable here but the bathrooms are tired and... More

Another IGH group hotel higher up the scale this time. The only problem here was not of the Hotel doing during our visit early January 2015. The tram company were doing essential up grading work directly in front of the hotel, which meant we had to walk the long way around to get from one side of the river to... More

The hotel was in a great location for many of Melbournes highlights. We were there for the tennis and it was a very easy walk along the river to get to the Rod laver stadium (about 30mins). The hotel is close to good restaurants and shopping outlets if required. My husband is a Platinum Ambassador member with Intercontinenatal and Crown... More

Stayed here Dec/Jan for 5 nights. The hotel is in a great location overlooking the yara river, with the tram stops really close by. The breakfast buffet was of a good standard. The swimming pool was rather small with not enough sun beds, but was adequate enough for a hotel of this kind. The hotel room itself was clean and... More

The hotel is close to the Yarra River and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and many of the sights. The rooms are nice and clean, and the staff is helpful and professional.Like in most Australian hotels there's a limited free Wifi in the lobby. The valet parking is $ 47 a night, however, free parking overnight is possible (but... More
