Comfortable and the best 5star rooms in Melbourne. Great views & access to the facilities of the Crown complex. Quality fixtures, quiet and comfort of great beds & pillows. TWG teas and 2 tvs a bonus. The experience loses its veneer through horribly rough staff who belong in RSL clubs. The phone manner is that of a surly public service... More

I was incredibly disappointed in this hotel. I was in Melbourne for a week on business and despite signing up for the $30/day internet I could not get a consistent connection. In fact, most times I couldn't get a connection at all. This was very frustrating as I had work to do, which I ended up doing in a cafe... More

Dear David F, Thank you for your feedback after your recent stay at Crown Towers. I was displeased to read of your experience, particularly with the internet issues you experienced. At Crown Towers we take pride in delivering a five star service, however it seems that we didn’t deliver on this occasion. As you mentioned, the majority of our guests... More

We stayed here overnight. Everything was lovely. Our room was very quiet, the bed was comfortable and the views fantastic. Crown Towers is conveniently located close to city theatres and restaurants. My only disappointment was being asked to leave the hotel foyer next day. I was waiting for my husband to bring the car around and somehow nodded off. I... More

This hotel is conveniently located next to Melbourne Convention Center and Crown Casino. Both room and service are sufficient. Asking for a higher floor, you will get an extraordinary view. Breakfast is served in the beautiful conservatory room. Food options are plenty but their bakery is not so good.

Decided to spoil myself at Crown for a few days, apprehensive about the price but was well worth it. The view alone is perfect. Beds are comfortable and the bathroom is to die for. Service was amazing and location is perfect, right in the heart of the city on the Yarra river, close to public transport and many venues, shopping,... More

Stayed at Crown earlier in July for 2 nights on business in a Premier suite. Check in was very smooth although I wasn't helped with my suitcase and was given quite basic information, having said that I do not mind that as it's a bit of fun checking out the hotel room by yourself. The suite is beautiful, has some... More
