“Most luxurious hotel we have stayed at in Aus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Wow, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, it was 5 star all the way. The staff at reception greeted us warmly and were very helpful. Our room was decorated beautifully with 2 double beds, a luxurious bathroom with walk in shower and bath (with a tv) and had amazing views of Melbourne from the 17th floor. It was cleaned spotlessly every day and had a nightly turn down service too. We are a family of four and we had plenty of space in the room.
The hotel amenities are 5 star too with plenty of restaurants to choose from and a great indoor pool, which the kids loved as they put up an inflatable slide while we were there. It is also located in a very central and buzzing position, next to the river. The fire balls which go off at night on the hour are well worth being around for.
I would definitely stay here the next time we are in Melbourne.

From the moment we walked into the Hotel we were very impressed by the grandeur and sheer size of the facility.
Our room was a deluxe king - very spacious and extremely well appointed. The marble Bathroom was stunning and the separate toilet and shower cubicles are a fantastic idea.
Would highly recommend this Hotel.

There is a lot of opulence at Crown. We stayed in a studio room, lovely bathroom with soaking bath and tv, gorgeous walk in robe, large room, plush carpet, Mini bar well stocked. The room we were in didn't have a great view (round the back of crown, as apposed to looking over the river), so I was a little disappointed, as this is one of the more expensive regular rooms. We weren't treated as 'special', something that other hotels manage quite easily (Langham, Windsor, Stamford). We stayed to see a concert, so had a late night, the next morning we had full intention of sleeping until 10.30! (No kids in tow). Unfortunately, as someone else has mentioned, before 9am, our door bell was rang, and housekeeping walked straight in! I called out that we are still TRYING to sleep. No apology, nothing! We had to be checked out at 11am, why is there not a better manifest of housekeeping, so as not to disturb guests? I haven't had these interruptions in other hotels, so we were a bit annoyed at this one. So make sure to put the do not disturb light on!
We had a nice stay, but not the amazing experience we were hoping for from Crown Towers.

Given I am not a gambler and have never really thought of the casino as a place to take a mini break, we were really very surprised by just how good a time we had. We travelled with or two young children and never struggled to find things to do both in and around the crown complex.

The inflatable water slide in the pool in the afternoons, the Galactica Circus (games room), the aquarium over the road, the flames on display every hour from 9:00pm, the kids were facinated by the experience. Not too mention being able to watch tv in the bath !!!!

The staff are every bit what you would expect from a 5 star hotel - nothing is too much trouble, the place is spotless and has a real touch of class. We had adjoining rooms, 1 x King and 2x Queen bed configuration and could not have been happier with the cleanliness and servicing of our room. Turndown chocloates were always a bit winner with both the kids and adults :)

Even without gambling, this was truely an entertaining place to stay with more choices for food and entertainment in the one place that we've ever experienced before. Las Vegas right here in Australia.

This is truly an amazing luxury hotel. We stayed in a suite with access to the Crystal Club for a romantic getaway and to celebrate my wife's birthday. The suite was very luxurious, but to be honest, we didn't spend nearly as much time there as we expected to because the Crystal Club was so fantastic. It has spoilt us for all other hotel executive lounges, because none of them has lived up to the same standard as the Crystal Club at Crown Towers. Don't hope to get upgraded to Club access, just pay for you it, it is worth it. The pool is massive and the gym is very good too. Luxury on every level. You just have to ignore the casino underneath (while being grateful it pays for all the detail in the decor at this hotel)!

Room Tip: Pay for Crystal Club access. It is worth every cent.

Once again, we stayed at Crown Towers when visiting Melbourne on business. The hotel was, as always, very comfortable with all staff providing excellent service. However, we will never stay there again during holidays times. There were simply too many people who most likely rarely stay in a hotel of this quality. They did not observe hotel etiquette of being quiet late at night. Lots of loud conversations and doors banging shut did not help our sleep. Their bags being loaded with cheap booze and potato chips was a dead giveaway. We will return when everyone is back at work.
