My preferred hotel in Melbourne:
- great rooms (especially if you stay often enough to get into the suites / villas)
- great restaurants in the Crown complex (Rockpool, Nobu, Spice Temple etc.)
- good service (large hotel so sometimes a bit overworked)
- good gym, tennis courts, pool and great location for a run around botanical
Whilst I am a fan of Crown, probably you don't want to book it under these scenarios:
- If you can't stand pomp & glitter... It is on top of a casino with pomp & glitter everywhere...
- if you want a mid-city location: Crown is in Southbank and therefore a little walk away from some areas of the CBD
- if you prefer individual, personal service: given the size of Crown, it has good service but it isn't perfect and clearly not personal... For example, don't expect anyone to recall your name, open the doors for you every time, or go out of their way to service your requests...
