Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Slavo Bathroom and rewards
I think it is time that Crowne Plaza Melbourne updated their bathroom, our party had 4 rooms booked and everyone mentioned that the bathrooms need upgrading.
The front staff have also lost their empowerment, they divert too much responsibility to others. I wanted to book 5 rooms for the Grand Prix, they couldn't help me, told me to ring bookings, I complained that I did not get my points for my ambassador membership on day 1 as I paid via my work, they said call the program. Your front staff need to take on more responsibility for customer service, not just fob me off.

We paid for an upgrade & the room had cracked floor tiles in the bathroom, & the bathroom door was rotting away on the bottom. overall the room was in our opinion 3.5 star.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gwenda1950 2 night stay
Great location . Views over river and casino. Room very comfortable except the bathroom was very small with shower over bath :-( no room to put your toiletries on the vanity. Staff very friendly. Just one little thing, i had a $50 hotel voucher. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Dinner was $47 odd and breakfast $32 so they just took off the dinner cost. I should have had $2-$3 taken off break fast as well so that i got my $50 credit in full. The credit wasn't just for dinner

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kerry63 Very helpful and friendly staff
our booking had not identified that we where booked in as best rate, rather then one night free, but the young man at reception was very helpful and was able to still give us the expected booking, and we where able to use our voucher.
( can't remember his name, but he had an injured hand)
Very polite and friendly

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Countrymum Gets better every time we stay. Great location, great hotel.
We stay at this hotel every year at the same time and spent 4 nights here. It seems to get better every year. The location is perfect and the surrounding areas are moving ahead in leaps and bounds. Now a great pub next door along the river, new cafes and eateries and a fabulous DFO just 5 minutes walk. Plus the usual atmosphere of Southbank which is just across the bridge. The hotel itself has the most comfortable bedding we've ever experienced. Clean, great view, staff are fabulous, friendly and helpful. The room service was amazing and the meal we had rib eye steak arrived, hot, tasty and cooked to perfection. The buffet breakfast was 10 out of 10. We are already looking forward to next September when we again go back for our week in Melbourne.

I will be back. Everything was perfect except for the room being too hot and my aircon didn't seem to want to work to cool it down. I cannot put a single complaint to anything else. The staff were wonderful and the rooms very clean

Crowne Plaza was perfectly located for our needs. The staff were efficient, courteous and pleasant. Having the late checkout flexibility as a IHG Rewards Club Member was brilliant enabling us to maximise our time in Melbourne.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lonerover Hotel convenient to Melbourne CBD, Entertainment & public transport but interiors require an over haul
Melbourne Crowne Plaza location and views are the only positive aspects of the hotel..
The Hotel it is easy walking distance to Southern Cross Station and tram stop out the front. The Melbourne Exhibition Centre, Melbourne Conference Centre, Crown, Casino, Southbank are 5 minute walk away from the hotel. Whilst you can catch a tram or walk to Melbourne Collin St, Bourke St and South Wharf shopping districts.
Rooms over looking the South Yarra are stunning but the rooms are outdated and showing wear and tear. The room interiors did not meet my expectation of a Crowne Plaza hotel room (modern and with modern fittings). The bathroom was clean but you could see the repaired chips in the vanitity unit.
There was not atmosphere within the hotel.
Overall, the Crowne Plaza Melbourne is conveniently but over priced for outdated rooms and poor ambience.

We had a lovely 2 days stay. Location is great, staff are just lovely, and our suite was very nice. You can use alternate parking which is a lot cheaper than the hotel (with hotel validation).
I will be staying here again! :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by August31 Beautiful view & comfortable king size bed!
We loved every minute of our stay at Crowne. We only stayed one night but we wish we'd stayed longer! The staff are very polite & helpful. Even helping me lift my pram down the stairs for me. They made us feel welcomed and at ease. They upgraded up to a higher level 'just cause' so we had a wonderful view. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend! Five stars!

So the hotel is very conveniently located if you need to be close to the Melbourne Convention centre. Close to DFO for factory outlet shopping, close to the casino if gaming is your thing and highend shopping and eating too. About a 15-20 minute walk from Bourke Street and about 5-10minutes from the nearest supermarket (Coles) at the trainstation. Tram line 2 minutes from the hotel.
Beds were comfortable and the hotel offers a pillow menu.
The staff were good. I had a gentlemen called Gustavo check me in. Professional, polite and got me checked into my room pretty quick. Offered me a discount on the internet as I was staying for the week and needed it for work which I was pretty grateful for.
Business centre was good with fast internet and printing facilities.
The hotel offers an outdoor swimming pool - which I didn't use as it is too cold but did go up and check it out, average pool.
There is a 24 hour gym in the hotel which is great if you work long hours and still need your gym fix - at whatever time you like. The cardio equipment is good, there are free weights and a cable weights machine too.
Housekeeping lady was the same one throughout my stay there and she was great. Mini bar staff were polite and helpful.
Buffet breakfast was good with lots of options to choose from. Room service food was quite average but the waiters that delivered it were very friendly. Dinner options were quite limited at the restaurant. Lobby bar was good for snack options and drinks.
My only complaint about the hotel was that I dialled from my hotel room phone 3 times throughout my stay and was charged for phonecalls that were never made. I was informed by the operator when I enquired that you get charged just for dialing out. I wish I had brought this up with front desk staff when I checked out because I don't think I should have paid for phonecalls when I none even connected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mingster Very comfortable rooms with great views
I chose to stay here at the last moment as I needed a hotel close to the Melbourne Convention Centre. It was perfectly located directly across the river from the conference which allowed me to duck in and out between sessions. Most of the rooms had a pleasant outlook onto the river and were nicely furnished. The staff were always very attentive and professional. Bottled water was not complementary. The restaurant was average in appearance and food quality, and quite pricey. Laundry was done on time but not particularly well. The outdoor pool was not used due to the time of the year.

Fast check-in and the concierge staffs are very helpful. Good location to Etihad stadium and walking distance to great restaurants at the Crown Casino. Highly recommended if you are going to the AFL match at Etihad Stadium and wants a great weekend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dazzling18 Good location & friendly staff
My wife and I stayed a Saturday night recently and would stay again. The staff were extremely friendly & polite and the rooms were clean & comfortable. I thought the bathroom was on the small side and the towels in the bathroom weren't all that soft. I wouldn't normally notice things like towels, so that would give you a fair indication I think. Value was only fair, but ours was a last minute booking so that may explain that situation.

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms are very clean. We had a river view room which was just beautiful at night and we are looking forward to staying again in August with the same views.
Breakfast was lovely and they had everything you could ask for.
I am truly looking forward to staying here again very shortly and hope my stay will be the same as the last one.
Thoroughly recommend staying here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Krissy221 Will stay again just for the location
The location was great. It was a walking distance to the casino and the tram. That's the only great thing about this hotel. Upon checked in, we noticed that the aircon wasn't working properly. Before we went out for dinner on our first night, we told the receptionist about this and they said they'll have someone go up to check.
When we got back, it still wasn't working properly. We just ignored it because we were too tired. On our 2nd night, we arrived around 1am and were really tired... by 3am we were woken up by strange shrill noises coming from the a/c. We thought it would stop but by 3:30 we decided to call the front desk. The night manager went up and checked and tried to fixed it but it's still making those noises. At around 4 he informed us that he will transfer us to another room by morning. Mind you the whole time we weren't able to sleep because of the noise and we sill have a full day of activities by morning.
Eventually we were transferred to a new room with the no apologies from the front desk etc.
Upon check out, we encountered a front desk receptionist named Ahmet/Ahmed who was really rude and abrupt. No please, no smiles, no thank you's. He even just told my friend to give him her credit card. No "Please" and after we paid off the bill he didn't even thank us. So overall, it was just the location that made our stay at Crown Plaza bearable, the service needs to be improved.

We stayed for 1 night to see a show in town and enjoyed the convenience and atmosphere of the hotel. The concierge was extremely helpful on everything we needed to know and very direct. Breakfast was also very good. the room was clean and comfortable the only thing I would change is to take a room with river views next time.
