It was our first trip to Australia, attending the tennis Open last January. We were warmly greeted by the friendly front desk, and our room, overlooking the Yarra river, was clean and spacious, especially the bathroom and its amenities (loved the TV above the bathtub). The location was excellent for walking to the Tennis ( about 15 minutes) and the proximity to the Southbank restaurants was welcome. At the end of a long tennis day, the water taxis dropped us off just a few hundred yards from the hotel. The breakfast offering was varied, inventive and dishes could be made to order. For runners, the location is ideal, along the boardwalk both sides of the river and by the Rowing Clubs back to the hotel (or a reverse circuit, about 5K). We were on a tennis package and our seats were great: some friends of ours from Canada were staying elsewhere and could not get tickets to see Federer play- but our concierge came through- they were not inexpensive, but it probably saved a relationship! We highly recommend the Crowne and will stay there again next time in Melbourne.
