Stayed at the Metropol 3 times in the last month in Luxe rooms and R58 rooms, it impressed me every time i returned. Reception was friendly and always got us into our rooms quickly.
The rooms themselves were spacious and had some great features such as connections to play your iPod/laptop thru the TV, automatic curtains and one of the comfiest beds I've slept on. Bathroom had great toiletries, plenty of room and great lighting. Views could've been better but this is the only bad point i noticed about the rooms.
Pool and spa on level 27 was the best i've seen in Melbourne with it's comfy beach chairs and 360 degree views around the city, stayed up there for hours. Also had a day spa and a fitness centre. Room service from Maze was one of the best steaks i've ever had and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. Location is perfect because your connected to the Crown Entertainment Complex and also just a few minutes from the CBD and Docklands.
I'll definitely be returning to the Metropol next chance i get, whether it's to party, chill or both it can't be beaten.
