After staying at Crowne Plazas in Dubai, Hong Kong & Copenhagen, this property does not match up. For gamblers it is in an excellent location & for those seeing to be close to the main Station also a good choice. Otherwise, we will not visit again. The cab driver took us to the Casino entrance as he couldn't find Hotel entrance! Two local family members got lost picking us up & completely lost trying to drop us back at the Hotel & I know that any tourist driving a local hire car would give up.
Concierge were most helpful. Food in bar area was disappointing. Breakfast buffet was good & had one of the best pair of rotating toasters that worked! Bed, as is usual at Crowne Plaza properties, was very comfortable. Room had a lovely view over the Yarra River & a glass desk for writing, working,etc. There was NO cable TV which was disappointing also. All in all, the hotel suited our needs for a 2 night stay but in my estimation was lacking.
