But what is really rude is being charged $4 for the bedside bottle of water. If Uber can give you a bottle for...

Wonderful location, great facilities, terrific service. Stayed 3 nights in a double room facing the river. Beds extremely comfy, linen fresh and beautiful feel. Bathroom could do with an update to bath (small & shallow) but functional & clean. Rooms pleasant-no ugly pictures or bedspreads thank heavens! Very plain but pleasant. Had everything we needed including tea & coffee, fridge,...

I really love suite room. So comfy and luxury. View at night over the Yarra river and city view are so stunning. I do recommend you to stay with your sweet heart. I don't interested in breakfast function because I love to have the breakfast around Degrave St. The Crowne plaza hotel is still the top of my choice to...

Again great service and friendly staff. Another satisfying stay for my family and I. Location is great, with great proximity to transport and Melbourne CBD. Yes the hotel is a little on the dated side but it is all about value for money compared to other hotels NEARBY. If you want something clean and value for your buck do not...

I didn't drive so cant comment on parking but you can walk to nearly everything you need and a tram station is right out front. The king room overlooked the pool and...

I rated this hotel 5 stars because I really couldn't think of anything I didn't like about it. The location is fantastic, the service was warm and friendly.
