We usually stay at Intercontinental Rialto but couldn't get a room with our vouchers so decided to stay at Crowne Plaza.The hotel is in a great spot but the entrance leaves a lot to be desired. I must say the hotel doesn't have a lot to work with. We received a lovely greeting. Being platinum members we were given an... More

I was stay in the hotel for about 1 weeks for business trip. During my stay, I feel very comfortable. What make me happy about the hotel is that the hotel is located not far from the heart of Melbourne city, and just across Melbourne Exhibition hall. With beautiful night view of Yarra river, I really love my experience of... More

I stayed here one night and really enjoyed my stay. The staff were all very attentive and extremely helpful. The room was very clean and had everything I needed. Lovely crisp, white sheets and big selection of pillows. The gym had all the basics needed for a decent workout. The 11am check out time is another little bonus. Nicely located... More

For a one night stay, visiting family, this was an ideal location. We could walk and explore the South Bank right across the bridge, and use the city circle free tram to get around on the other side. Cab rank right outside. Huge window in room let in plenty of light and a view. Quiet room and all necessary facilities.... More

If I could 3.5, I would, I feel average is a bit harsh, but very good is not right either. A colleague and I stayed two nights on business and so my comments are based purely on a business perspective. We found the hotel was a bit expensive compared to our other approved hotel options. The rooms are quite small... More

Dear Juddster1, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. It is unfortunate the size of the room, and ambient noise levels prevented you from fully enjoying your time at the hotel. We are confident the necessary adjustments will be made, in order to achieve complete guest satisfaction. Thank you again for your comments, we look... More

Great place by yarra river, close to all of Melbourne's attractions trams right out the front. Nice buffet breakfast would recommend to friends if you can get a good price. Close to Melbourne aquarium and the casino if you are into winning some money or losing it.

I highly recommend the Crowne Plaza hotel for any traveler in Melbourne, with its great location, brilliant service and excellent value. I ended up booking here after failing to book at any of tripadvisor's highly rated (and overpriced) Melbourne hotels as they were all fully booked. After my experience here i can safely conclude that this hotel is under-rated and... More

First impression was how vast the hotel is and probably specialises in catering for businessmen. But we were very happy with our experience there. We only had one afternoon and evening in Melbourne before catching the Overland train to Adelaide the following day and the station was a 10-minute walk away. Reception were friendly and helpful - even offered us... More
