“Crown Spa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

My girl friends and I have been making a regular 6 month girls day out at Crown Spa..

It's simply amazing.. We book in for a Massage and Aqua Retreat, it's a simply stunning day to spend with friends. Swim, jacuzzi, steam rooms, pool and massage, a beautiful day of pampering. You can also order drinks and food (very over priced) at the pool desk and that is severed to you in a relaxing area..

It's a wonderful day out, staff are amazing...

Room Tip: Did not stay.. Just went to Crown Spa

I've stayed at this hotel about 5 times now. It has all the amenities of a 5 star hotel, however what particular like about this hotel is that they stock TWG tea in their rooms.
The rooms are beautiful with amazing city views or bay views. If you are a tourist and require internet access, I would recommend getting crystal club access as their is free wifi in the lounge, complimentary drinks and canapés in the evening and also free breakfast in the morning.

Room Tip: I prefer a room with a box window.

I have been wanting to stay at Crown's premier hotel for some time and was able to experience a Premier Suite. Crown cannot be faulted for it's service, location, quality and attention to detail.
The room was nothing short of breathtaking with incredible views over the Yarra and the CBD. Nothing was spared in the bathroom with beautiful lighting, quality bath products and luxurious fittings. The bed was incredible - the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
It is perfectly located in the heart of Melbourne and Crown has so much to offer you barely need to leave it. It was difficult to even leave the suite with its daybeds offering the view of Melbourne and the window seats in the bedroom.
If you want to splash out and indulge in everything Crown has to offer then definitely book in a luxury stay at Crown Towers. It will not disappoint!

I treated my Mum to a night at The Crown for her Birthday. What a treat it was!

I have stayed in alot of hotels over the years and there really in none better than The Crown!
I booked a Premier Suit with Crystal Club access.
Upon arrival my Mum was wished a Happy Birthday and we were escorted to The Crystal Club to check in at 11.40am! My room request was a city view room and smoking room and none were avaliable, so we were offered an upgrade to a Villa at a very reasonable cost!

WOW..The Villas are amazing! Just superb.You also have private lift access and Butler service.
Check out is at 12pm in the Villa, lovely.
The staff are all friendly and helpful everywher you go.

The Crystal Club afternnon Tea and Pre diner drinks with canapes are fantastic! I think I had 5 Expresso Martini's. YUM! Our glasses were never empty for long. What a lovely Birthday My Mum had- one she will never forget!
Thank you Crown.

Room Tip: Book The Crystal Club!

My husband and I recently stayed at Crown Towers for one night over the Melbourne Cup long weekend.

We found a good deal through the Entertainment Book for a Sunday night stay.

The room was very spacious, clean and our view of Flinders St Station and the Yarra River was amazing.

The bathroom was to die for. Very classy and spacious.

The king bed was comfortable and the linen was fresh and of great quality.

The gym and pool area was fantastic. The gym has state of the art equipment.

As much and I loved the stay and that I would love to stay there again, I don't think the usual $600 - $800 price tag is worth it for a Saturday night?

As for breakfast - we did't have breakfast at the hotel however there are plenty of cafes/restaurants to grab a bite and coffee at.

All in all, great hotel!

My husband and I recently stayed one night (without the children) and thoroughly enjoyed. The rooms are large and luxurious. Very clean. Very good quality linen. Turn down service a nice touch. We actually didn't leave the hotel precinct in 24 hours. Enjoyed a gold class movie, ate in a few of the fabulous restaurants...too many to choose from! The only slight disappointment was the pool and spa. My massage was average, apparently my husbands was good. But not up to standard I would expect. Spa was too cold and the steam room temporarily broke! Not ideal but certainly didn't impact negatively on my stay. The staff were all lovely and it was extremely busy, with one direction in town and spring carnival racing! We will definitely return, most likely with our kids as well. They would love it.

Got a fabulous rate on Wotif, under $300. The room was fabulous with a very comfy bed. Bathroom magnificent. Entire facility world class and very convenient location. Parking very easy and cost on a par with nearby hotels. Suited our purposes perfectly
