The Crowne Plaza in Melbourne was a little more than I usually spend on an overnight stay in the city, but our options were limited so we went with it. And I believe it was worth every cent. I liked the design of the hotel itself, all circles and curves, with appealing flower arrangements and artwork.
Our room was huge and bright, with an enormous window and spectacular view over the Yarra River. Despite being right above a main road, and only three floors up, the room was quiet and traffic noise very muted.
Everything was clean, with all essentials provided.
The package we got included champagne and breakfast. Often in such a situation the freebie wine isn't great but this was really nice and very drinkable. The breakfast buffet, from which I had a good graze, was all excellent.
All staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful.
My only complaint was that the bed was a little on the hard side and didn't seem to have a pillow top. Not as comfy as I am used to.
I would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend to friends.
