Stay with IHG and you can choose from four Melbourne hotels, each conveniently situated to help you make the most of this sophisticated city. One of the most diverse Australian destinations, multiculturalism melts easily into the backdrop of Victorian architecture, lush and leafy landscapes and contemporary urban spaces. Melbourne may be a big city, but it operates at a gentler pace, with cycle lanes and tram services replacing stressful commutes.
A creative honey pot, Melbourne boasts some of the world’s finest art, music, food, fashion, theatre and design, each of which prove a major draw for locals and tourists. Sport is another key attraction in the city, with Australian Football League a particular highlight. The city calendar features notable international festivals that celebrate the best of both the arts and sport, as well as a variety of well attended flower, food, car and family festivals you’ll be lucky to catch.
The climate in Melbourne is changeable and can shift from hot and sunny to cool and rainy with little notice. However, with so many places to shop, tour and explore you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding an escape from any unfortunate weather. The Southgate complex is teeming with shops, cafes and entertainment, including a casino, to help keep you occupied. Alternatively head up for a closer view of the clouds from the Skydeck of the 92 storey Eureka Tower.
Melbourne’s parks and gardens provide a welcome retreat when you’re looking for somewhere to relax. The Birrarung Marr offers the soundtrack of the Federation Bells whilst the spectacular Royal Botanic Gardens runs along the Yarra River and hosts Moonlight Cinema and theatre performances during the summer. If you are in search of sand, head for the palm-lined promenades of St Kilda’s Foreshore for a beach experience that is reminiscent of an English seafront. When you simply can’t take another step, you might as well board a hot air balloon flight and soak up the stunning cityscape on one of the regular sky tours.
However you plan to make the most of this city, choosing from hotels in Melbourne is easy with IHG. Book now and enjoy a comfortable stay in quality accommodation at affordable prices, serviced by IHG’s friendly staff.

Having booked this through the IHG website, I submitted a claim through the best price guarantee offer (as the hotel was cheaper on a different website)
Claim was denied as at the time the IHG staff[More]
checked the competitor rate it had gone up. I provided screen shots of the rate at the time of booking and was told theu don't accept screen shots as they may have been edited.
Spent around 3 hours on the phone with "best price guarantee" department with no resolution and another hour on the phone with the Corperate office in Sydney with no resolution. Arrived at the hotel with the staff well aware of the situation, as a platinum member was given a room upgrade and the staff where amazing!
However when it came time to check out I was offered $15 off my parking bill in Lou of the $300 I was owed from the best price guarantee not being met. Staff told me the hotel was separate from IHG and there was nothing they could do. [Less]
My stay at Crowne Plaza was great. The service and smile were excellent. The accommodation was clean and tidy and very comfortable. There was no night time noise to keep me awake.
disappointment was to do with the entrance renovations. These were messy and made getting into the hotel a little confusing but totally understand this needs to be done and I expect it will be wonderful once completed. I hope I come again some time. [Less]
