    We liked the view we had from our tenth floor room and the accessibility to the city and casino

    A spa in our room would have been great

  • Older travelers

    Our room had a great view of Crown Casino, Jeff's shed and the Yarra River. Southbank and the CBD were only a stroll from the hotel and when you attend a function at a restaurant at Southbank, and at the end of the night, all you have to do is walk home. An a very extensive and good menu was on offer for breakfast, and this was included in my room rate.

    Although free WIFI was available in certain areas of the hotel complex, it would have been an added bonus if it was available throughout the entire hotel and more important available in the accommodation rooms.

    The river view was beautiful

    For the room we got it was overpriced.

  • Older travelers

    Loacation, outstanding buffet breakfast, helpful and well-trained staff.

  • Single

    Met expectation in most areas and exceeded them in some.

    Building is a little old now but so far doesn't seem to affect it much in terms of comfort and cleanliness

  • Family with children
    7.4

    It's location is excellent, close to eveything. A very comfortable place to stay, with friendly and helpful staff. However, I do feel like it was more of a hotel for people with business interests. Thanks

    Its rather expensive, if you haven't booked in advance.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Fairly modern facilities with well mannered and professional staff. Good to see customer focus

    Although the initial contact with reception was not what I expected over the phone when I needed directions to find the main entrance from the Casino, overall the experiance was very good.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    room had been refurbished ( except bathroom ) to A good standard .loved the river /city view .convenient location.

    dislike paying A creit card fee.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The staff were freidnly and only too willing to help with any inquiry. the room itself was great.

    I myself cant sleep on hard beds, so i didnt get a very goodnight sleep. i was in pain for the majority of the next day due to this.

  • Couple

    We stayed on Crown Promenade in March of this year over the long weekend. However Crown Plaza's staff was so much more friendly...I Don't think any of their staff spoke as we wondered around where as all your staff were friendly, happy and courteous and made us feel very welcome which was lovely. Whether is was a cleaner or a reception staff they were all friendly happy and appeared to love being there. Definitely stay again.

  • Older travelers
    4.4

    The beds were so hard and the garbage in the room was not emptied all weekend. Also cogciege did not help us with our luggage at all and we watch them help other customers

  • Older travelers

    Felt the staff were very proactive by approaching you to see if they could be of assistance. This is not often experienced at other hotels.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The Hotel fulfilled expectations, location met my requirements and the Hotel staff without exception were friendly and most helpful.

  • Couple
    5.4

    Buffett breakfast was good

    Room was tiny.. And the name is misleading as it's not at Crown.. Stayed the next 2 nights at the Hilton Hotel for less price per night with a better room and facillities

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    i found the service of your staff to be exceptionable they were so helpful i would stay there agian weel done to the staff

    i found that the kitchen staff didnt know how to read a menu order when stated on the form that you just want bacon you shouldnt get the rest of the sides especially if you have an allergy to fungi
