“5 star luxury-- best hotel so far!”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

Myself and two friends decided to stay at Crown Metropol for a concert at Palms @ Crown that was on later that night. Check in was fast and easy, the receptionists were well mannered and very helpful.

The room... what can I say? It was absolutely gorgeous!! Beds and pillows were so comfy, it was almost as though I was sleeping on a cloud and sleep was almost instant. I just have to say, you need to be extremely comfortable with whomever you're staying with. The bathroom has sliding doors that are covered in that can be opened up fully. There's only stripe-blurred glass separating the bathroom from the shower and the toilet. Fortunately, I'm very close and comfortable with my two friends. The bathroom comes fully equipped with everything you need-- even a toothbrush and some toothpaste!

The amenities at CM are amazing. There's a 25 metre pool at one depth and a spa that's just under 40 degrees. They're on the 27th floor of the building, so you have a fantastic view of the city from every angle. There's a huge range of seating around the pool. They also have a gym, which I unfortunately didn't have the chance to use.

Overall, this place is pure luxury. Anyone who's staying in Melbourne, whether it be for a purpose, or you just want a relaxing weekend away, this is your place to go!!!

This is a very nice hotel and the rooms have all you want - the staff are friendly but distant - my comment would be that it is missing spark - get a hotel signature personality please - make yourselves something different - stop living in the shadow of the Crown!

After holding a conference at Crown, we all stayed the night and had such a restful and relaxing time. The staff were brilliant, the rooms were lovely and we left very, very happy. Thanks again Crown!

Room Tip: What a wonderful breakfast to wake up to!

Nothing negative to say. We had the top floor, with awesome views over Melbourne. The service was top notch. The pool had the best views at sunset, I reccomend taking a dip in the pool at sunset and take your camera. The rooms were spacious and very very clean. I was very impressed by the standard of the housekeeping and how quickly guest services responds to your requests. I would definatey stay their again.

The hotel is in a great location, in walking distance to good restaurants and the city. It's also a quick cab ride to great shopping. The rooms are modern, trendy and spacious with very comfortable beds. The bathroom is very nice. Staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is great. I recommend trying the spa too. Whether travelling for business or pleasure this is a great hotel.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in July 2011 for 3 nights. The hotel is modern, refreshing and clean. Staff are helpful and friendly and we didn't have any complaints at all during the time we spent there. We loved the pool. We went for a swim at all different times of the day and the view was so pretty. The location is great with lots of shops and restaurants around and close to the trams. Rooms are large with everything you could need, comfy bed, big screen TV and a large nice bathroom.

Would stay here again without a doubt and would encourage others to stay here as well.

We recently stay here for a night (i wish we stayed longer) and it was great. Everything seems to run smoothly at this hotel from the moment you drive into drive the staff are very helpful and efficient. The only thing I would say is that the girl at check in really rushed us through check in (even though no-one else was waiting), although she was pleasant enough she just spoke really fast and didn't explain what was included in our package. The pool is amazing we spent as much time as we could in it, I think in the middle of summer it would be really muggy though, its all glass and when the sun streams in, you would feel it. The breakfast in the morning was also great, good coffee, plenty to eat and again great views. I would highly recommend this hotel, even though we stayed a night it felt like two, really relaxing. You can walk straight in city, the aquarium, the casino, shopping, and even catch the tram right outside the building to port melbourne ect. Fab location. It is also on the corner where the tram restaurant begins, so perfect it you are doing that too. All in all we will stay here again for sure.
