I stayed in the Crowne Plaza hotel for 2 nights. It's a lovely hotel in a great location whilst at one edge of the city, it is very close to the Crown Casino, no association, on the river and the Docklands. The location is good, and it is a lovely walk to many of the restaurants and bars of the... More

Dear Vangeinternational, What a very thorough and well thought out review! Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne over Easter. You certainly found your way around the city! We are disappointed that you didn't find the Priority Privilege program worthwhile, however you are right about our Priority Club Rewards program -...

We arrived early in the morning on the overnight train from Sydney and asked if it would be possible to check in early. This was no problem and were even given a room upgrade. The room was good with views over the river and convention centre. Breakfast was excellent. We took advantage of the 30 minutes free wifi per day... More

Good hotel if travelling for business. Comfortable bed and hot shower. Park in the Wilson's carpark for $14 rather than $35 for valet...it is only a 200 metre walk. Breakfast in the lobby bar for me was also a better option than the lower floor buffet.

We have stayed at the CP a couple of times now. Usually to attend Conference just across the river. It is well located for Conference centre, Casino, restaurants and a few blocks to some excellent shopping. The rooms are fine, some a bit smaller than others, nice ambience, bar and restaurant just off reception. All in all if the price... More

Nice hotel which is located right in the city centre with a waterfront view of the docklands that has tram access right outside the door. Staff are very friendly, food was great. There are no power points next to the bed which I thought was rather odd considering most people have their mobiles charging with their alarm over night or... More

We were on a holiday break with just one work-related meeting in the city for me. Yes this is a very good location; yes the lobby is very plush and impresses; yes the concierge... More

I have stayed at this Hotel twice in the last couple of months.

This Crowne Plaza is a lousy experience. It is very run down and badly in need of renovation. Everything is uniformly shabby except for the lobby which is deceptively well maintained. The Hilton on the other side of the bridge gives you a good stay at the same price. Go there if you need to stay on the wharf.
