“They take $100 every night you stay off your credit card, and take 7 days to refund it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011 via mobile

Nice place, wasn't informed they would take 'security deposit' of $100 a night. I rang to enquire why money was missing. Their response was 'it's standard practice' very rude!!!!

The hotel is adjacent to the Crown Towers Hotel and all the restaurants of Southbank. A short walk to the city and slightly further Federation Square. Stayed here for a conference which was well organised.

Minor lapses in cleanliness ( the occasional black hair in the bathroom) and the towels are getting a bit past their use by date.

Only ate in the restaurant for the buffet breakfast but it was good.

Would stay again

We love staying at this hotel. Very central to everything in Melbourne. Good night sleep, the bedding is relaxing. Lots of things to do, or simply just relax in the pool. We had a fanatastic buffet lunch at Mesh all you can eat and wine for $45, the only dissapointment was breakfast at the same restaurant, everything was luke warm or cold, but when we told the Manager he told the chef and they replaced the food. I think they should have more packages so people can take advantage of this great hotel.

I really find hotels quite uncomfortable beings so never really expect all that much. I was pleasantly surprised to find this hotel in Melbourne ticked all the boxes for me. I'll stay there again.

I stay at the Promenade 9 nights during my recent business trip in Melbourne.
The room is good enough for the standard, just a bath tub will be better. Nothing to complain about the room
BUT
In the middle of my stay, I left my room in the morning to go to a business appointment and what happen, the lift was blocked in the 11/F!!!
I was blocked more than 30mins in the lift. When the maintenance people manage to open the door, a kind of manager who didn't introduce himself "welcome" us and say he's sorry, blabla, and asked for my room number, so I gave him my room number and left the hotel cos I was already late.
Normally even for a little complain re the room or the service, the GM or PR always write a apologise letter and do a commercial gesture. but I got Nothing!!! I spent aud2300 in this hotel!!! and the GM don't even take time (which is only 5min) to write a apologize letter!
I don't even know why the guy asked for my room number if he already knew that they will do nothing!
And at the check out, the receptionist asked how was my stay, and I told him about my story. And the only thing he has to do, is laugh and tell me :"no luck"

If a manager of the Promenade read this comment, please take in consideration that even if we are not a member of Crown casino, we are still a guest of your hotel and expect to be serving well.

Just returned from holiday in Oz with the Crown Promenade Hotel the first hotel we stayed in - there for 3 nights and the hotel is close enough to walk into the main parts of Melbourne, is close to the transport system (try the free City Tram which takes you round to most of the main attractions) and lots of the restaurants on the South side of the river.
The new Mall with shops and restaurants is next door and can be accessed from the hotel if you dont mind walking through a Casino during the day.
Staff were helpful and friendly, hotel modern and clean with lovely picture windows with window seats to make the best of the view.
Our package didnt include meals but can recommend the World restaurant on the Southbank and the Old Tea Room just off Collins for breakfast.
If we get back to Melbourne we would stay here again.
