Hotel rooms in melbourne are notoriously expensive and in short supply. So this view is relative to other hotels in Australia and not hotels in Asia. Crowne Plaza is definitely a hotel targeted towards business travellers. While the rooms are average, the location is excellent. Right across the river from the south wharf, casino, restaurants and shopping (DFO outlets). The concierge is excellent and extremely helpful. Only if the staff behind the reception would have been more polite, I would have given the hotel an excellent rating. The staff looked bored and were kind of rude. The hotel has a lot of airline cabin crew staying there and the reception tends to get crowded. It would have been a more pleasant experience if the staff was more patient. Also, somehow Internet and breakfast was not included in the corporate rate and I found the Internet connection very expensive. So make sure you get an inclusive deal with the rate.
