Having stayed in Crowne Plaza elsewhere I thought I was going upmarket with this choice for city break with my partner. However the room was small and looked inward to the pool rather than outward to the river. While the rest of the experience was fine; staff, great location, cleanliness etc, I would not pay that kind of money for... More

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne for 2 nights in May. Many reviewers have noted that the hotel is a bit Spartan but well-located, and fine for business. I thought this was a good thing, because I like modern, minimalist, and the rooms are very minimalist, and this also makes them seem very room, so it was fine for... More

It is a great place to stay in Melbourne. The hotel was totally occupied when I visited. The only problem was that we had to wait for an hour for the room to get ready but the better part was that we were given two extra hours on the day of checkout. The casino is great. Thhe staff is also... More

Solid hotel but more suited to the business traveller. We bought 1 night as part of a "mystery hotel" deal and were given an Executive room with a River view. Room was not quite ready when we arrived so we were given vouchers for their bar/lounge while we waited 15 mins or so - nice touch! Room was very clean... More

The service at the Crowne Plaza was really good. Every staff member i spoke to was attentive. The rooms bathrooms were a little dated. The view of the river was good. Would stay here again in the future.

There were a few problems that could be fixed very easy. We walk down from the train station and there no obvious entrance until you reach a set of steps and you think oh, I have to cart my case up these stairs which I did and once I got up the stairs I saw a ramp. I thought maybe... More

I stayed in this hotel in Melbourne in January 2010 for a few nights. I had travelled with a friend from Perth to Melbourne but I am originally from the UK. I have stayed in a few Crowne Plaza's in my time and this one definately didn't disappoint. A fantastic location, we had a room with views of the Yarra... More

After a terrible experience with the Pensione hotel, resulting in wandering around the city trying to find accommodation, my friend and I stumbled upon the very friendly staff at the Crowne plaza. They gave me a very good last minute deal, accompanied by a free upgrade. The place was very nice with great service. The breakfast buffet was a decent... More
