Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nursie Stayed for conference at the Melbourne Convention centre
Had a great stay whilst here. So convenient for the conference we attended. Handy to food halls along Southbank.
Small convenience store across road.
Restaurant was lovely for dinner. Meet friends there and then after dinner drinks in the lobby bar.
Bed really comfy. Slept well
Lovely view down the river
Would stay again

will always give the crown 5 stars in all - traveling around Oz and NZ have never found one that is nothing but clean, great staff who smile and assist with not a hint of being put out. Beds are great never woken up with sore back, neck, shoulders. Dining is great, fresh and how you ask to have it cooked (especially steak)- love this brand

I enjoyed my stay at the Crowne Hotel. I was in Melbourne for business and and am a Priority Privilege Member so opted to stay at the Crowne and they did not disappoint.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gippy Very Poor staff
I've stayed at your hotel on several occasions in the distant past. My first time this year. The location is great but pretty much all your staff lack finesse and some are down right feral. One very pleasant exception was our room service person. As all staff are tainted with this attitude, perhaps it is the company culture and addressing it would be a worthwhile exercise. Otherwise your hotel does have the potential to deliver a good experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary41 A great room
We stayed in a king-room, 9th floor, river-views. Just wonderful. Spacious. Great housekeeping. Also, we ate almost every night in the hotel restaurant or had room service. Very good. I understand the chief chef is new. He's serving some excellent dishes--creative, great flavours. The entrance and lobby leave something to be desired, but the structure is there and not much more can be done. Access to walkways along the Yarra is fun--at least three different walks, good access to city centre, arts centre and south bank.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DoubleR Convenient location. Great feel to the place.
Went to Melbourne specifically to see King Kong and prefer Crown Plaza with its IHG Priority Privilege program.
Looked to upgrade to a 10th floor suite for the two nights and after seeing the room and the fabulous panorama from the window it was a no-brainer.
Very friendly obliging staff who were always at our service.
Very good dining room experiences for both dinner and the buffet breakfast.

I had dinner on the Saturday night of my stay and the food was very good but the service was slow and I did not receive all food that was order.
When the bill arrived I was charged for food that was not served and the amount of time it took to serve the meal was not acceptable. This opinion was being expressed by other customers sitting around us.
I asked to have my cheese platter delivered to my room rather than wait and was asked to sign another bill which is fine but then was presented with another bill when delivered.
I have dined in this resteraunt before and the waiting time was much more acceptable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Comfy room, lovely view up the Yarra and friendly, helpful staff.
This hotel was good value for money. Older style but clean and comfortable with great service by all staff. The position of hotel allows easy access to many restaurants along Southbank and crown casino. Tram stop out front of hotel and Southercross railway station one block away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Funtotravel Amazing View!
Had a good stay at this Hotel. We stayed for three nights in a suite on the top floor of the hotel with beautiful views directly down the Yarra River. The suite was very large and the views were amazing however the room decor and the bathroom were a bit dated and in need of some attention. The bed was very comfortable and when we requested some feather pillows they arrived quickly.We ate dinner in the restaurant the first night we were there and were very happy with the meal and the service. The other two nights we had room service which was also up to a good standard and arrived in a timely manner.
We ate breakfast each morning in the restaurant where they served a standard Crowne Plaza buffet style. My husband enjoyed a freshly made omelette each morning as they also had a chef available to make omelettes, poached eggs etc.
Check in and check out was good with helpful and friendly staff and although the check-in was very quick, out bags still got to our room before we did which was really great.
The location of this hotel is also very good and we had no trouble walking or catching the tram to all the places we wanted to go. All in all it was an enjoyable stay.

I was in Melbourne for a conference and i now tend to favour the Crowne Plaza and this one was great. Looked a little out-dated from the outside but inside was nice, great staff. The lady who was at the desk was amazing in the way she handled our early check in. Breakfast was good and so was the room overlooking the river. They make a great note of your Gold status at all times when making an enquiry by phone or at the desk! Great job, see you again soon!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kimbo321 King room on 5th floor.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at crown plaza. Our room faced the city with a view straight up the Yarra River, it was beautiful. Our room was very comfortable and well kept. We had banquet breakfast downstairs both mornings and it was fantastic. We ate so much that we skipped lunch both days. I would highly recommend a stay at Crown plaza. My only criticism I have is that the parking was a bit of a problem...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chargrilled Just Right
The service was great. Collin, the doorman, pleaseantly greeted us. Kay at recepetion was very helpful and sincere. They sent up a bottle of complimentary champagne and a thoughtful card to help us celebrate out 10 year wedding anniversary. Kay even booked our dinner for us. The whole checking in and out process was hassle free.
The room was a touch small but clean and well serviced. The beds were comfortable, but pillows were a bit thin and soft for me. Shower head was good, but bath a little on the small side.
We had the discovery package (I think its called) which included valet parking and breakfast. Well worth it I thought.
The only negative for us was the coffee at breakfast. I was longing for a nice coffee in the morning after the night before. I was hopeful seeing a proper coffee machine and what appeared to be a barista. We ordered a coffee, which came out quickly but it was of a poor standard and neither my wife or I drank it.
All in all, recommended.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SidW67 Needs much improvement
As quirky as it may sound, I have gotten used to the fact that as a Platinum Elite member of the Priority Club, whichever IHG chain hotel in the world I go to, the person at the Reception makes that special effort to greet and acknowledge your status, all except this one.
I guess that was a good indication of what to expect. From leaky roofs and buckets on the carpet as you walked from the reception to the lifts, inconsistent newspaper delivery in the mornings, to being charged for internet usage on checkout when I had confirmed it was complimentary when I first made the reservation via Priority Club.
The saving grace was really the location to my work conference. I think next time, I will try another IHG hotel like the Intercontinental or the Holiday Inn to see if the experience is any different the next time I'm travelling or staying in Melbourne.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DGPGJune Check out Check in
On check in the booking details were taken incorrectly, we had to request the configuration we booked, additionally we were not provided with the option to upgrade which was on the original booking details.
When we finally got the correct room etc we were offered a late checkout as priority club members which was great.
Prior to departure we were unable to return to our room on 2 occasions as the late check out was not noted correctly and the room passes did not work, this was extremely frustrating having to go back to reception on 3 occasions..

I stay at the Crowne Plaza every month with my husband. Everytime the service is amazing and they are always happy to help with all our needs.
The restuarant downstairs is beautiful. The food is always scrumptous.
I highly recommend you to stay here. I would suggest the yarra river room. You can sit on your seats with a beverage and look at the casino when the fire balls go off.

This quiet and comfortable hotel, ideally located close to Crown Casino, Convention Centre ,Etihad Stadium and the city, overlooking Southbank and the Yarra River on the crossroads for tram transport close to train stations. Large rooms with quality fittings. Breakfast is very good, dinner limited menu, not much imigination, typical bistro fare. Happy hour 4-6pm each night, relaxing atmosphere.
