We booked a weekend stay at the Crowne Plaza through Wotif. We had a queen room on the 7th floor with great views of the Yarra River and the Crown Complex and in the distance Port Phillip Bay. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable with all the mod-cons required of a hotel. The buffet breakfast was great, plenty of options available. Check in and check out was quick and fast. Valet parking was $40 a day but we utilised the 24hour garage that was located about 200 metres from the Hotel (we paid $14).This hotel is in a great position. A 5min stroll to the Crown complex with plenty of restaurants and entertainment options to choose from. And great shopping to be had at DFO Southwharf, a 10min walk down the river.
The only niggle we had was that we were locked out of our room after the 11am check out time, we had a 2pm checkout as part of our package. So we had to go back downstairs to get our card reset.
But other than that, we had a great stay at Crowne Plaza Melbourne!
