Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kleeee Best Night Sleep
Just wanted to write a quick review regarding our recent stay with you. We had a room booked for New Years Eve and were thrilled with the location of the hotel for our needs. The staff on check in were friendly and helpful and the room clean and tidy. Was smaller than some we have stayed in but as we had plans out and about that was not an issue. We took advantage of the "pillow menu" and ordered two feather pillows which were delivered to the room promptly and we enjoyed these so much that we ended up purchasing some to take home when we checked out. The most memorable part of our stay however was the absolute comfort of the bed. Both of us had the best night's sleep and were just sorry that we had to leave the bed in the morning and that purchasing a bed to take home was not an option! When we did check out and enquired about purchasing the pillows, the staff were most helpful and made sure this was not a problem.
All in all we had a most enjoyable stay and will return.
Thank you - keep up the good work

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dani532 Very comfortable bed and great food
From the moment I entered the Plaza I loved it. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and great mini bar selection (I ate the lot haha). Had the best night sleep (the block out drapes worked a treat). The food we got from room service from the restaurant below was to die for.
I stayed two nights in the standard room. The only downside was the size of the pool... It was a hot day on one of the days I was there and many of us were scrambling for chairs... Other than that, fantastic place to stay, I recommend to anyone wanting to stay close to the cbd. I walked everywhere.. Loved it.

It would be great to see a new menu every now and then... I am a regular customer and the menu can be very un-appealing after a couple of visits... Thankyou

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Martika25 Fabulous view down the Yarra
Best sleep in very comfortable beds with a range of pillows to select from to suit your sleep preference, something I've never experience before.
Your concierge staff were excellent! And every staff member always friendly and helpful.
It was a fabulous location whilst not in the heart of the centre very close to free tram, train station, casino etc...
The photo attached is the view from our room on the 6th floor! Stunning!

We had a short stay at this hotel. We found the location excellent and very convenient if you want to move around in the Melbourne CBD. The staff were very helpful.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay close to the city in Melbourne

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LordSebastian1969 A Crown to beat that opposite, the Crowne Plaza
I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times and it is a lovely and unique design hotel, it has a semi circular design on the Yarra river opposite the Crown casino so at least half of all the rooms have a spectacular view, the other half a good one. This is a good honest Hotel if you have an issue let the wonderful staff on the front desk know and it will be resolved, they are all so lovely. The concierge desk makes the whole place run and they are very efficient and some of the best I've seen working as a team to take care of every whim.
This Hotel have some lovely staff one I shall single out is Anna, she looked after me with the IHG passion for satisfying the customer and ensuring that they have a perfect stay. When you enter the beautifully appointed foyer you may feel it a bit like a shopping mall with all the escalators but look past them till you get to your room. The rooms are good, the beds are like sleeping on a Plush cloud, ok not every room is Brilliant, I like nearly every room I've stayed in on the "Opposite Casino side" and not so much those not. An ambient temperature is kept by the air conditioning. Let me not forget to mention the wonderful pillows, it's an IHG thing you can ask for your favourite style pillow and the rooms are very clean and well kept by an efficient house keeping, with the rooms made up brilliantly everyday. The curtains in the room are block out, so a sleep in is possible, the amenities amongst the very best.
In the evening we had dinner down in the Clarendon Street Grill restaurant which was great and drinks in the bar were relaxing.
On our second night we had room service which is very good, well delivered and laid out, Hot and scrumptious, if your hungry, with the your selection from the Crowne Plaza menu delivered quickly and hot. The next morning breakfast was delivered hot with a large room service selection all very tasty, delicious and tempting.
This is an excellent hotel, with some wonderful passionate staff, whilst not my favorite hotel in Melbourne, I recommend it especially if your only visiting for the first time then it's a great location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daniell Good Location and Great Hotel
Communicated with Hotel Staff prior stay and my request was granted. Friendly staff and good service. From other reviews and previous stay I am aware that hotel is working to improve their bathroom facility which I would recommend to implement soon. Breakfast selection is what you would expect, would prefer to have some "Asian" options if possible.
Great Stay and Good Location hence would recommend it to other.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vicki1959 Awesome view and extremely helpful staff
The room had an awesome view over the river and was perfect for our needs. The staff were the most helpful and accommodating I've come across. Their willingness to assist with special dietary requirements in the restaurant was very much appreciated. The careless housekeeping really lets an otherwise excellent hotel down. We had booked for 3 people yet repeatedly were not left enough linen or even glasses. We left a polite note requesting enough for 3 people the second day and still had to ring reception to assist. I also noted that room service trays were left outside rooms for up to 48 hours. Having said that, I would definitely stay at Crowne Plaza on my next trip to Melbourne.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kat666 Room with a View
I was very disappointed as I had paid extra to have a room with a view being River and Casino views, these would have looked fabulous being on the 8th floor and I would have gotten some amazing camera shots but alas the windows on the outside were so filthy you could not get a clear view of anything :(

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OldStickintheMud Worst Crowne Plaza I have been to
1/the bathroom was tiny could not swing a cat in it. No room for 2 people at a time. Bath just about big enough to sit in. The grout between the tiles black with mould. Horrid!
The location overlooking the river is wonderful, pity the windows are so filthy one cannot enjoy the view. The staff are all wonderful, what a shame the hotel lets them all down so badly. I have been staying at Crowne Plaza hotels, on and off, for over 20 years and am a Platinum Elite member of the IHG Rewards Club. I was upgraded to this room which was billed as one of their best, APPALLING!!! God knows what their lesser rooms are like or what they do with their non-elite customers. I am booked into their Dubai hotel in January but will not stay there if it is a bad as this. My trust and faith have been sorely tried.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Riverside28 Poor service, not clean and over priced this year
Our room was not cleaned very well with terrible yellow stains on the toilet seat.
There where long black hairs on the basin.
Bar was completely empty.
No nibbles or wine where provided in our room.
My husband and I stayed at this accommodation last year for our anniversary and the price was fantastic but this year staying again for out anniversary it had sky rocketed to too expensive.
Also my husband told them that is was our anniversary and you think that you could have a complimentary bottle of wine in the room.

The Crown Plaza is a very comfortable hotel in a good location. It is close to Southback entertainment and 15 minutes walk into the city.
The hotel is modern and the staff a very friendly and helpful. I found the service to be very good and consistent throughout my stay and across all the services I used.

We have stayed at this hotel several times before and are always very happy with the whole experience. Attention to detail is excellent - a chance remark that it was my birthday resulted in a bottle of champagne being sent to the room. Much appreciated

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Love2 When booking said that if joint IHG will have free wifi, but not at all.
1- Reception staff rude when query with free wifi, the reason book is because of promise if joint IHG then will be free wifi, but not truth.
2- Bathroom is old, bath towel have bad smell, seems not clean properly.
3- Location and view is nice, our room have the full view of Yarra river.
4- Concierge is helpful and nice.
5- No bottle of water supply like other 5 stars hotels does (2 bottles of spring water per day).

A stay for pleasure and personal celebration made better by the service of the hotel. Arrived very late and a little irritable due to tiredness but all smoothed by efficient and welcoming check in. On arrival to the room greeted by superb river view, personal note from the hotel and a wine gift for my celebration.
Many thanks it was great and comfortable stay.

Thank you Crowne Plaza Melbourne,
My mother and I enjoyed four days with you and experienced Melbourne Cup for the first time. The concierge helped us in so many ways and nothing was too much trouble. This will always be our choice for accommodation in the future. A truly memorable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by coralseacaller Great service, Room & Location
I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne on previous occasions & hope to do so again.
The hotel is of a high class standard.
Each visit I am impressed by the staff's attention to detail, their confident & accommodating service.
The reception staff, concierge & service workers are friendly & professional.
Each room I have stayed in is modern, spacious, kept clean, has comfortable sleeping & good facilities (coffee making, bar fridge, newspaper,).
Bathroom facilities are well equipped & fulfil their function.
The location of the Crowne Plaza in Melbourne is excellent for any activity. Trams run from outside the hotels stairs, trains are nearby. Dining, take out & convenience stores a close walk.
The location is convenient for shopping & business alike,
If a high floor room can be booked, views are captivating.
Computer & internet facilities are available 24 hours.
The Crowne has become my preferred accommodation in Melbourne.
I cant wait to book my next stay.
