Excellent first class service all round, yes it can be busy and relatively expensive but equally great location and good value for money. Stayed 3 nights on our first ever family trip to Australia, room was all we wanted, plenty of space large beds to sleep off the jet lag and the bathroom, well almost lost the family in there!...

This hotel lost a star from me because their reception staff does not even greet you with a smile. I’ve received friendlier services at 3 star hotels. But I’m beginning to see a trend in four to five star hotels that this is a common occurrence. The advantage of staying in crown towers is the convenience of having a variety... More

The hotel looks quite fantastic from the lobby, and the facilities such as gym, and pool, will definitely leave an impression on you. As this is part of the Crown casino Southbank, there are lots and lots of options for food.. The price however, is quite steep. I stayed for a business trip and unfortunately couldn't book a single room,... More

Having stayed in a few fancy hotels in Melbourne, I was really let down with this one, I discovered that my refrigerator didn't chill much, the sink on the right hand side didn't let water out and the noticed the drawers knobs were loose. The light switches need to be updated as they aren't easy to operate in the dark.... More

We stayed at the Crown Towers one week ago just for one night & we cannot wait to return. I have stayed in numerous hotels around the world including the Langham chain & the Ritz in London & Crown Towers beats them all. The hotel is fabulous! There is everything you could possibly need nearby (restaurants, shops, transport). The lobby... More

We booked an overnight package as we had one night stopover before an international flight, which included Valet Parking and Breakfast. Excellent value. The rooms are lovely, bed comfortable and the bathrooms are fabulous. A really lovely design and really private - which I know sounds weird in a bathroom with only 2 people sharing - but important (in my... More

My partner and I stayed at the Crown Towers for two nights while visiting Melbourne. We stayed in a deluxe king suite, which was very spacious and modern. The hotel itself, from the grand entrance upwards is beautiful! The customer service, in all aspects, could not be faulted. Just what we needed for a weekend away. Only one tip, be... More
