“Weekend Gettaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Chinese New Year started on Saturday night and we had an awesome room over the river directly above where the fireworks were going off. Because we were high up, the fireworks popped right in front of our window which actually made them vibrate. It was amazing.
It's true, it is a city within a city, there is so much you can do here that you do not need to leave the complex at all. Anyone that says otherwise would have to be a boring soul. Young or old it dosen't matter, 24 hours of whatever you need to do......

Stayed here on the weekend as part of a conference deal.
Stayed in a Deluxe King for $305 as part of a conference deal. (Website from $299/night!)
Decent sized 45m2 room with a view of the brown Yarra river which we had to pre-request.
The room had subdued modern tones in contrast to the gaudy gambling arena visible from the lobby. The noise from the corridor was evident sometimes.
Great location for the restaurants and bars along Southbank and a short walk into the more refined areas of Melbourne/Collins Street.
Service was helpful and warm.
Quite good value given the size of the room, view and location.

Room Tip: Request a view of the Yarra when booking.

The crown towers is one of the 3 hotels in the casino complex, and we just loved our 2 nights n our premier twin room. We had a lovely view of the river, and the room itself was spacious and well appointed. Loved the bathroom. Housekeeping did their job well, and everything felt clean and fresh which is no mean feat in a large hotel.
The gym has great cv equipment, towels and water for a good workout, so we didn't feel sluggish between the fantastic gourmet food offered in the restaurants that face on to the promenade. Had a lovely swim in the pool as well.
What more could anyone want? Excellent service, beautiful facilities; a city in a city - we barely stepped outside except stroll down the gorgeous promenade and view Melbourne from The south bank. We had good value facials in the Metropole too. Can't wait to go back!

A time to celebrate a big birthday milestone...
Booked through one of the online booking sites... Stated views of Melbourne and from pics..looked river views. So was a Bit disappointed in room position but the room itself soon made up for it from every aspect. Spectacular ... Not a thing missed when it came to detail... The bathroom divine.. A great bathroom gets me every time.. This was the best!!!! Could not fault anything... Was a rainy night... Umbrella waiting in the dressing room.. So easy!!!
Did not see hear or go near casino.. Have stayed in many hotels worldwide and this was definitely up there as one of the best!!!! Already planning my next stay. Highly recommend
