We stayed overnight in a Twin Luxe Room with our 2 children. Got a fantastic 1st Birthday deal on the Crown website which included parking, breakfast and spa voucher for $259.
This was our first time at Metropol but we have stayed at Towers before and think both hotels are fantastic for both service & location. When we stay at Crown we always feel special and thats why we like their hotels so much.
Metropol is modern, clean and new. The rooms have everything you need. Other reviewers have complained about the bathroom screens but we thought it was a fantastic idea and there were no privacy issues - just a great way to open up the room if you wanted to.
The pool area is great - the pool a little to cool for our liking but what a view!!! Only complaint with the pool area is that they have these wonderful double lounges around the pool area but they are covered in wet towels - your not sure if someone has reserved the lounge or has just left their wet towel there. Maybe a pool attendant could monitor this a bit more so all the the lounges could be used.
Location is excellent with the Casino precinct just over the road and South Wharf shopping a short walk up the street. Tram stop just near the casino as well.
Had buffet breakfast in Maze which was nice but nothing special for a Gordon Ramsay resturaunt (and a $40 price tag). I don't know what more you can do with a buffet breakfast but this was just the normal breakfast buffet.
Checking In & Out times were busy but the staff seemed to get through them fast and efficiently.
Interent connections were too expensive and we did not touch the mini-bar for the same reason (there is an IGA grocery and liquor directly over the road).
Would definately reccommend this hotel and we will definately be back.
