This hotel is close to the centre of Melbourne and is part of the Crown Complex which is huge. there is another Hotel with Casino, which needs to be seen to be believed. There are restaurants’, bars, night clubs, leisure facilities and more! The Promenade is quiet in comparison to its sister hotel. We were tempted to upgrade to a corner room which had city views and was well appointed with all mod cons. Wi-Fi was poor and really expensive at $25 per day, per device!!!! Outrageous! it should be free! Breakfast was well presented although at $30 per head, not cheap. Our stay coincided with the Melbourne Cup which was an amazing experience in itself, so much elegance and finery and a contenent that comes to a halt at 3.00pm on race day!
