The greeting and service at reception was excellent, the view over the river was a delight and the room clean and comfortable. The hotel is showing its age and this is certainly the case with the bath room with old fittings and chipped tiles. Breakfast was your typical buffet, and very average. Compared to our Asian neighbours, Australian hotels are...

I think this is a great location: on the Yarra River, close to convention centre, casino, Southbank, railway, and inside the free CBD tram zone. Room was spacious and comfortable. The room showed its age with quite worn bathroom fittings, but otherwise felt clean. Ongoing building works out the front make car entrance a bit more difficult, but once inside...

Had a night stay at the Crowne Plaza and received riverwie room based on my IHG Rewards Club Spire status. The hotel doesn't have proper priority check in desk for elite guests that can be annoying in case there are lines. You would think that a hotel that tries to cater international guests would have CNN or BBC? They don't....

Have stayed here a few times over the years, however this time we found it was a bit noisy and becoming dated, though rooms are nice and clean. Location is perfect and breakfast is pretty good too.
