I had a reservation at the Crown Metropol which is excellent however I was offered an 'upgrade' to the Towers so I took it. I have to say I much prefer the more contemporary feel of the Metropol. I also prefer the check-in at the Metropol (hotel) over the Towers which is part of the casino. The room itself was typical five star conservative 'luxury' which lots of people obviously love. My biggest shock however was being given a smoking room complete with ashtray and matches. I'd thought smoking in hotel rooms was outlawed in Australia but apparently not. The hotel moved me to a non-smoking room without any fuss but I have to say I would've found staying in the room very difficult as it was obvious the previous guest was a smoker. If youre a non-smoker insist on a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor.
