We stayed here on our wedding night and the staff made it feel very special. Everything about our stay was just perfect! The pool on Level 26 was amazing and soo soo relaxing. A real highlight. Amazing views! Our in-room breakfast in the morning from Mr. Hive Kitchen & Bar was another highlight.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review of your stay – it is greatly appreciated.

Check in was reasonably quick considering it was very busy, our room was on the 24th floor and we had views of the Yarra and the bay. The beds ( 2 queensize ) were comfortable and clean. My only issue is the bathroom, it is large and clean with a seperate shower and toilet. The problem is it is open...

Having previously stayed here for work, I enjoyed returning with friends. In a convenient location in the crown casino complex, it is a short walk into the city and close to the tram line. We had a basic room (no bath), however the rooms are spacious, decent bathroom and lots of natural light, unfortunately, we did not have a great...

From booking to check in to leaving, the staff are wonderful. Nothing is too much bother. We had the package with valet parking, pre dinner refreshments and buffet breakfast and were delighted with a very clean, modern room with great views. The only criticisms were the bed being very hard and the nylon mattress top was very hot for sleeping,...

Attending a conference in Melbourne. Location of Crown Metropol was excellent. Great room and facilities. Proximity to restaurants is wonderful. Breakfast was a little expensive. Room was nice and clean and a pleasure to return to after a days work or shopping.

I've stayed here before and the quality and service has not changed. The room is large and what you expect of a 5 star hotel.

This hotel is excellent. The service is exceptional, rooms are lovely and spotless. The beds are a dream to sleep in. Lobby and rooms are well designed with excellent attention to detail. Sadly, the pool - while a beautiful space, was over run by poorly behaved children. If you're thinking quiet evening, think again. Think beach ball to the head......
