“Clean rooms, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

My husband and i stayed here for the weekend after christmas. Check in was quick and very friendly. Hotel was very clean and Fresh. The view from our room on the 9th floor was lovely! Bed was soft and comfy and the room and bathroom were very clean.

Best thing is the location, a 2 minute walk accross to the massive Crown complex, right near a million fabulous restaurants along the lovely southbank area. Also only a 5 minute walk in the other direction to the train station, where you can easily take a train to the best shopping in melbs at Melbourne Central. Or you can catch a train right to the MCG and watch an AFL game, or in our case a Cricket game.

Overall a very pleasant expierience at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne, we would most definitley stay here again when we come back if we can get a good rate as sometimes it can be a bit expensive for a nicer room.

Have stayed here a few times. Lovely rooms with comfortable beds. Buffet breakfast is great, broad selection and tasty food. Helpful staff and good facilities. Close to tram and casino. Would definitely recommend to others.

The most positive part of our stay here was the location, 5 min walk to Crown Casino and 10 min to Flinders station. The rooms are so-so, and service 4.5 star. It had great views of the fire works on NYE, if you book the rooms with city views. Otherwise, there is no luxury comfort to talk about, nor are the staff super friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for city view

Thank you PFirst123 for your feedback.

We have to agree with you that the location of Crowne Plaza Melbourne and the views of the City and Yarra River are terrific, especially on New Years Eve. We were however disappointed to read that on this occasion our service was not up to the standard we strive to deliver to all our guests.

Your feedback is very important for us, as it allows us too continually improve.

We hope to see you back in Melbourne and at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne very soon.

Kind regards

Good size rooms and kept very clean. Very nice breakfast and a quiet bar for drinks in the afternoon. Awesome location in heart of Melbourne, easy walk to Crown casino and South Bank where there are plenty of resturants to choose from and there is something for everyone and every budget,

Room Tip: Floor 2 was fine.

We spent two days in the city to see the Christmas decorations, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were given a two room suite on the 10th floor which overlooked the Yarra and the casino. Excellent dinner in the restaurant. The breakfast buffet was also very good. Would recommend the hotel. Quite expensive, but it is near the casino and docklands.

We stayed over a very busy weekend in Melbourne and consequently the price we paid for the room was more than what you can normally get it for. That being said, the choice was a great one. We had a fantastic view of the Yarra and down towards the city. The room was very spacious and whilst not super fancy it was very clean and comfortable. They have a pillow menu which is appealing. The bathroom is quite small but that didn't bother me. You would find it a bit squeezy with two people in there. The breakfast was great, really varied and a dedicated egg station and a juicing machine to make your own freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juice. The service was good and the location whilst on the edge of the city in some respects it is very accessible via tram or across to the Casino precint is a simple walk. I think the view the room had really made this hotel a stand out choice for a night out. I'd definitely come back if I got a good rate and could book a room with a similar aspect as the one we had.

Thankyou Traceyleigh for sharing your recent experience at Crowne Plaza Melbourne. I was pleased that you made use of the pillow menu to make your stay more comfortable. It is also great to hear your positive feedback regarding the buffet breakfast at Clarendon Street grill. Anne the egg chef has developed quite a reputation in the hotel for making some of the best omelet's in Melbourne.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Crowne Plaza on your next trip to Melbourne
