We arrived early to the Crowne Plaza and so were offered a room on the 4th floor with the option to move to our booked room on the 7th floor later in the day. We took the 4th floor and opted to stay in there as it had a good view down the river. The Crowne Plaza is on the... More

Ok, disclaimer-my husband used to practically LIVE in hotels at his last job; so, we were staying here based off points and that sort of history. Upon check in we were upgraded to the executive level ---wow. The view of the Yarra was unsurpassed. And the proximity to the shops and restaurants (and transportation) surrounding the river was perfect-no matter... More

Situated at the west end of Melbourne's CBD and near Docklands is this better than average hotel. The best points - very pleasant staff, a generally well designed room with simple air conditioning, reasonable desk arrangement, a good shower in a reasonable bathroom and very good breakfast with espresso coffee on offer. The pillow menu is genuine and I successfully... More

Has a free drop-off and pick-up for the Melbourne F1 Grand Prix race. Unfortunately, nobody told us when I ordered a taxi to take me to the race circuit! Good tram service locally. Not to be... More

I commenced my stay at Spencer Street crown, with a lovely greeting from reception staff. It was the first time that I had stayed here and all the staff are very helpful.

CP Melbourne nails it on a number of key points, great location, helpful friendly staff, nice room, bed, etc. A particular high point for me was the 'guest' power points by the bedside, so no need to tear the room apart to find a point to charge your phone. A couple of drawbacks: WiFi dropped out constantly, might have been... More
