We just returned from a weekend in Melbourne staying at the Crowne Plaza. After reading up on many hotels I couldn't decide which one to stay in so I went with a mystery hotel on an accommodation website. When it turned out to be Crowne Plaza I immediately had a look at trip adviser reviews and I have to admit I wasn't expecting too much as the reviews were varied. I shouldn't have worried though because it exceeded all expectations!
Things we loved -
When we checked in I was surprised to find out we had been upgraded to an executive room on Level 8
The room was spacious with new flat screen TV, complimentary water, apples and drink in Lobby Bar
Great location, just across from Crown Casino complex, great restaurants along the Yarra, short walk to big train station and DFO shopping centre
Newspaper each morning, and turn down service
Staff were friendly but not 'in your face'
Fantastic weekend away.More
