Great location, walking distance to so many places. Fantastic staff... lovely surprise being an IHG member and staying on my birthday I got to the room to find a plate of chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottle of sparkling wine. Buffet breakfast was great, something for everyone and the staff were very attentive.

We recently had 3 nights at Crowne Plaza. I took my elderly parents with me on a business trip so they could catch up with family. I chose this hotel as there is a great view over the river and crown casino. The room didn't disappoint with the view. The service was perfect. We were sharing a king studio room....

The hotel is well situated, right on the Yara river and next to the convention center. Reception was prompt and helpful, rooms were comfy and well appointed. Finding restaurants for dining out was easy, many good ones within walking distance. Breakfast was expensive by comparison to whats available from restaurants nearby, overall a great location and stay, will come back

Best location, best view, good room, thanks for the wine amenity, good rate. The only downside is parking was so inconvenient. They provide us with discounted parking of $16/day, but on the condition of we cannot bring the car out at all, if we depart the park, it will need another $16 to bring the car back in. I think...

I visited this hotel for a conference. There was significant building and demolitian underway so my expectations were low. However, Crowne Plaza, your staff were exemplary. I arrived as a keynote and they arranged my parking with minimal effort, assisted me through the building. Every experience with the staff exceeded my expectations. The locations was excellent. The meals average but...

Good business hotel with convenient access to Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre. Staff was helpful and friendly. The room that I got faced the wall and a bit of the river on the first floor but manageable as I've only stayed for 3 nights.

Room was clean and comfortable and located in a very good location just opposite the Crown casino where I had my dinner every night during my week's stay in Melbourne. Breakfast was crowded but services are ok. Downside is there is construction work going on nearby which I could hear from my room.
