Perfect place to stay for Australian Open. A short walk or water taxi to the tennis complex. Tons of celebrity sitings. In my top 5 hotels worldwide for accommodation and service. Make sure to get Club Level rate and enjoy mor ing breakfast, afternoon tea as well as cocktails each day. Melbourne is city with great energy. Fun.

Very glamorous hotel with stylish well appointed rooms with walk in wardrobe, large picture windows and great views even in my budget room. The bathroom is gorgeous and I love all the special touches like crystal chandelier lighting and luxurious toiletries. This hotel deserves its high rating. The only negative for me is the high cost of valet parking. I... More

This is the high mark of luxury - oversized lounge room with bar (for your butler of course) and work desk (should you chose to play CEO), your own boardroom for power meetings, a bathroom with massive circular bath and steam shower, plus one of the most high tech toilets in Australia, and opulent bedroom (although bed could be softer)...

Beautiful Hotel with everything you need right at your fingertips. Room was perfect, view amazing, bathroom gorgeous and so many restaurants and bars downstairs. Late night shopping also right underneath you. I recommend the crystal club package. It was pretty much perfect the only small thing which wasn't a problem because it didn't go to late was music coming from... More

More expensive than other five star hotels in Melbourne but great value just the same. I went with my sisters for my 50th birthday and we shared a twin room which has two queen size beds and the hotel is happy for this room to accommodate four people at no extra charge, This is very generous, and not common in...

Stayed with the wife and kids in the most amazing Suite - it was incredible. The entire team at Reception and in the Crystal Club made us feel like royalty. The cleanliness of the suite and attention to detail was not overlooked - it was faultless. Book and enjoy the experience.

This hotel is so beautiful you could not get tired of it. The lobby, the beautiful wood panelling, the lifts, the room fit outs, the view. The service. Wow! James Packer runs a great show. I have stayed here four or five times and it is a favourite. I look forward to my next visit. Best of all Free parking!

We upgraded to a suite on the 21st floor. The room was just beautiful it was a very large... More

My wife and I spent this Easter in Melbourne and stayed at the Crown Towers Hotel in Southbank. We have been regulars at this hotel over several Easter holiday periods and have always enjoyed our stay and this time was no exception. As soon as you enter the foyer you are overwhelmed by its grandeur. The place is big, stunning... More
