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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by takaopan Fantastic location and good for visitor
This CP has a great location with fantastic Yarra river view. Meanwhile cross he bridge is the famous crowne of Melbourne. You can easily spend a whole day there and couch back comfortably in the CP with good overnight price. The breakfast is also ok, but could be better if the cafe could be levels higher with river view. This is a really pity.except that, all good and worth the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kalisa Excellent Overall Experience
For many years, my partner and l have spoken about staying at the Crowne Plaza and we finally had the opportunity: We were celebrating a very special occasion. Everything was well organised, the staff were professional and nothing was a bother, the room was clean and up to standard, the view was amazing. All our request was handled in a timely manner .The location is perfect for a Melbourne trip and the Buffett breakfast caters to everyone.
If l had to fault our stay, l would say that the cream Brule was not great (no crunch) and the television had two lines running down the screen when we watched a DVD. (Which was a little costly at $19.00 for one movie) but we defiantly would stay again and we have stayed at some top end hotels, 9/10 for all the little things that make the differences

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Olga59 Great service all around.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Crowne Plaza in Melbourne.
The room was lovely and we had a great view even though I didnot ask for it.
The concierges we dealt with went way above and beyond their duties in helping us with everything we asked for especially with one particular request.
We don't have opportunities to travel but when we do we always stay at Crown Plaza

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mezzalea Consistently great service
I booked into the Crowne Plaza for my 50th birthday and was not disappointed. The staff were extremely helpful, especially at the concierge desk. Breakfast was very good as was the room service. The bed was so comfortable that I hardly remember laying my head down. Even the lady cleaning the room was so friendly. Little things like this make the difference. This is the third Crowne Plaza hotel I have stayed at and all have been consistently good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pork Accommodated our suite situation
We over indulged in our suite and the staff accommodated our group of people to another private room. Their attitude and help was courteous and everyone in our group who were staying at the hotel appreciated their consideration that was shown to us.
Also your hotel site is very convenient, close proximity to the train station, casino and outlet shops and dinning in the hotel was extremely nice.

The location on the Wharf is easy walking distance to DFO , Crown Casino. The tram is at your doorstep which can take you on a 5 minute ride to the city. Hotel is clean and the front office staff and concierge should be commended for their customer service. Will definitely stay here on our next visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerardh Staffing was excellent!
I was in town on business from the U.S., and my wife went with me. The room was typical for this quality of a hotel. What we found to be exceptional were the staff. The breakfast crew in the Dining Room were wonderful. They were very friendly and quite chipper for such early morning hours.
Also, the Concierge staff were wonderful. My wife asked many questions about the area and her sight-seeing options. She was delighted to learn so much from the concierge staff. They were all very knowledgable and very helpful in every way.
Thank you for making her stay there one to remember.

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.

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.

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.
