We stayed for two nights while attending a conference. The location was great ,just across the river from the convention centre. For after hours it is nicely located with lots of restaurants and the casino just a few minutes walk. The walk to the city was also nice and easy . The free city circle tram was also really handy....

I am a platinum ambassador and normally choose this chain for my travel. The hotel is good and very nicely located. My room had a great view along the yarra river. Sadly the stay was spoiled by a rude staff member over a misunderstanding over a late check out time. The manager righted the matter very promptly for which I... More

I stay here frequently for business, so my review is tinged by this fact. The staff here are great, the hotel large and in a great spot on Southbank - close to restaurants, the aquarium, casino, DFO. Nice walk into the city. The bar is good and the staff generally know their wine and cocktails. Rooms here are in neutral... More

I stayed here for three nights on a business trip. Rooms are very comfortable and service was excellent. I did not eat in the restaurant but I used room service several times and was impressed. Meals were always delivered exactly on time and amazingly the toast was even hot when breakfast was delivered. The hotel is in the new docklands... More

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night (22 Sept) during a trip between Adelaide and Sydney. We had stayed here before the previous year and based on that we had rebooked. The room that we stayed in was on the 6th floor facing inward viewing the pool. This room appeared quite small although it had all the amenities,... More

A variety of restaurants close by, on the Yarra River a choice of cafe's/ restaurants from $ to $$$$ Utilise the free 'city centre tram service' , also the paid trams & trains & buses are frequent. An easy city to also walk around, so much to see

I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip to Melbourne. It must be handy if you are here for a conference otherwise a pretty forgettable hotel. The reception was a bit souless but at least the staff were helpful and friendly staff. Rooms are on the small side with poor sound proofing you can hear people walking and... More

Stayed for one night only on this trip, and it was my second stay at the Crowne Plaza. Arrived in Melbourne at 10am on a Friday morning and thought I would just drop my bag off before heading out, however I was able to check in as my room was ready, which was a bonus. Staff were friendly and my... More
