Editorial review:

Crown Towers Hotel is one of the country’s most lavish places to sleep. No expense is spared on views, gadgetry, original artwork and contemporary opulence. This is a casino hotel, so if you’re looking for a subdued atmosphere, it’s best to look elsewhere. Weekend guests are there to party.

                    Breakfast que long. Slow to get toast and eggs. Two pepper shakers on table (both empty) no salt. However staff attended promptly.

                    The location is fantastic! The view from the room window was beautiful! The staff were very prompt and friendly with extra requests! The room was very spacious and the bathroom was spacious and very comfortable!

                    I wouldn't have stayed there if it wasn't for the special rate they had...i don't see why people would originally pay up to $400 and more a night for the room I stayed in! The bed sheets and doona were too warm whilst on and then you'd be really cold with it off, so that kept interrupting my sleep! The mini bar was over priced as they usually are, so it's probably worth while to visit the local iga store to purchase some snacks and drinks! Overall the room was great though- i'm just picking on the really small things!

                    The room was large and very functional, can you say walk-in closet. Technology is the name of the game. Many choices for dining, from food court to 5-star. Within walking distance of many of the sites in Melbourne, close to all means of transportation.

                    Loved everything about this hotel. If the opportunity arises to return to Melbourne, this hotel will be my choice.

                    We were upgraded to a suite which was lovely, and we were able to check in at 10am when we landed from a very long-winded flight. The staff were excellent, so considerate. The Crown is a beautiful hotel!

                    i found the location of this hotel excellent, its like the entrance to melbourne city itself, everything you could want or need is on your doorstep, from the hotel i walked every where, it was just a pleasure to do so, so much to see and do,so much you would miss if you took taxis.this is an excellent hotel, but in my opinion a little over priced , otherwise i cannot fault it.what i found most surpising, was , as busy as the hotel was, with a casino shops cinemas etc, my room was in fact a haven of peace, i could have been anywhere.

                    there is not a lot i did not like about this hotel,but i have to be honest and say i found it a bit over priced.i loved my room and really enjoyed the veiws, but found that i had to pay for a double room when all i required was a single one.the staff were very helpful , but again i must be honest and say i found it a bit impersonal, more for bussiness and casino users, than family stays.i loved the rooms and the bathrooms were a pleasure to use, bath had its own telly and the showers were excellent, but i was surpised the bathroom lacked the basic box of tissues !!!!!!!

                    The room was execellent.

                    Staff were not up to scratch for a hotel of this level. Unhelpful and on one occasion even rude.
