Decided to drive to Ramsey street instead of going on the tour, as it wasn't far from the caravan park and would save us $100 :). The street is actually called weeden drive off Springdale road and it is weird that all the houses do kinda look the same in the area. It was so surreal walking down the street as there was nobody else there apart from a …
The next day we sadly had to return the Audi and decided to spend the day exploring the city centre. Maud did this by taking in the various shops and I headed to Federation Square for a bit of culture and an exhibition they had on there that was the complete history of video games from the original space invaders and pong to today´s Wii´s and PS3. …
Day 180 Saturday 1 July 2006 I flew to Melbourne today and was met by Rooney and Jen (from the China trip) at the airport as they kindly said I could stop over at theirs whilst I am here. They took down St Kilda way and we went on the oldest wooden rollercoaster in the Southern Hemisphere in Luna Park....it reminded a lot of being on the …
... nice - one very small snag - it was all served on the same plate (not the wine silly - they were in three separate glasses - but we were advised as to which wine went with which course - neat eh? A good day Sunday - back across the Yarra River to the Southbank. The sun was shining and Melbourne families were out enjoying the day. There was street theatre and loads and loads of vintage cars on display. I didn't take a single photo of them cos there were just too many and I ...
... goon :-/ was not a pleasant morning with a hammering headache so I didn't get up till the afternoon :) ! Got up about 1.30pm and was in need of some hangover food...I made myself a muffin with melted cheese and beans and a beer, I mean a cuppa tea, haha and it went down a treat! After I was showered and looking like a normal person again I went for a walk to Albert Park which is the location of the formula one Grand Prix. If you remember we had already been for a drive ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crown Towers Melbourne
Living just 40 minutes from this hotel me and my fiance decided to pamper ourselves for just One night in August and try the 'Executive Suite'. It was just wonderfull.
Stayed at crown in an executive suite (floor to ceiling window view of the yarra) for my birthday, the view is the only good thing.
I love Crown - especially Crystal Club
Stayed at Crown Towers for one night in July. Love Crown Towers, whenever I feel like being pampered I head there. Great lobby, great rooms, luxurious bathrooms and the casino is great, but crowded. The best thing about Crown Towers though is Crystal Club. Pay an extra $55 per person and get to visit the 29th floor with free drinks and snacks from 5-7pm and a great buffet breakfast 7-12noon. I really go to Crown just for that - the staff at Crystal Club are sensational - cannot do enough for you! Express check in and always helpful and polite. Only problem is that I cannot go to Crown now without Crystal Club.
The Crown Towers was the first leg of a 3 and a half week tour of Australia and Singapore.
Stayed here in July 2004 for a Buffy convention of all things (no Im not joking!!).
I found the rooms quite agreeable and even extended my stay. The bathroom was large, although no bathtub. I was not charged for razors or toothbrushes etc, I belive that they're complimentary, regardless we were never charged.
The windows are fantastic in both the bathroom and in the room itself. A word of warning though....don't fall into the trap of believing that they're tinted on the outside (need I say more?)
The service was wonderful. Couldnt complain.
It was not a good start to my short business trip, my usual hotel is the Crown Tower across the road, which has always been fantastic. However though I would try the new "kid on the block". I requested a twin queen room about 2 weeks prior. When I checked in I was given a single king size bedded room, I was not informed at checkin of this, I was left to discover it for myself. Its just bad customer service.
Also remember to bring all your own amenities, they charge for everything from tooth brushes to razors. I was shocked as this was meant to be a 4+ Star establishment. Well I hope you have a better experience than me.
Crown Towers is famous for its complex comprised of hotel, restaurants and casinos. We went there last October. The room is spacious and nearly all the rooms have spectacular views eyeing Yarra River. We are all impressed by the jacuzzi bath tub. It is an uncommon feature in this kind of hotel. The indoor heated pool certainly gives you a wow.
You will be freshened up completely after enjoying the gym and pool facilities.
My partner & I stayed in an Executive Suite recently and I must say the view was magnificent. We were put up on the 27th floor, overlooking the bay of melbourne and the fire display on Southbank at night. An Executive Suite does not have the floor to ceiling windows and has annoying walls in between which impede the view. The bathroom was superb with spa and TV also. The only annoying aspect was the lack of professionalism by the staff, who to me all seemed quite young and inexperienced. Unlike the more established hotels that we have stayed in, in Melbourne, the service lacked that special care & precision that makes you feel important and that you love from a luxurious hotel. As my wife can attain to, when the do not disturb sign was showing and a staff member couldn't refrain from simply leaving a bucket of ice outside the door and had to let herself in It is obvious from looking at the walls of the room, that most of the rooms are interchangeable and are transformed to meet the guests needs, which again retracts from the overall 'specialness' of the room, considering it is a $1150 AUD a night Suite. Also potential guests would be well advised to make sure that if you require a King size bed, that Crown does not use two single beds pushed together with a mere piece of cloth over the ridge in the middle, instead, as in our case. I was told that this is regular practice and that next time I should request not to have this, and that a high percentage of guests cannot tell the difference... I maybe a little old fashioned, but when I pay for a King size bed I assume that it will be in one piece!! We had a fabulous dinner at Cecconi's & beautiful buffet breakfast in the Conservatory and enjoyed the great view of Melbourne. So if it's a view you want, Crown is it.
Spa day at the crown
I had a 'spa' day at the Crown with about a dozen other ladies on a partner's program from a conference - and I haven't stopped talking about the wonderful time I had - like being wrapped in cotton wool for the day. I didn't want to leave. The wonderful decor of the whole area available to us was unbelievably welcoming. Thanks also to Joseph! who delighted us with his easy going manner and attention. My very very favourite spot was the steam room! I'd never been in one before - great for the skin etc. I would recommend the hotel to anyone and will watch out for any competitions to stay there for.....ever?? - well - a few nights would be great. Thanks to all the staff. Karen B.
My initial impression as we entered our Deluxe Suite was that of being underwhelmed. At $1250 AUD a night I anticipated a suite of rock star proportions. A modest living area combined with a generous bedroom and bathroom were adequate but didn't rate very highly in the WOW factor expected at this price level. Having said that the room was quite sumptuous with tasteful contemporary furnishings, excellent bedding and 3 televisions (1 in the bathroom for in spa viewing). The highlight was the superb view out of a 180 degree rounded picture window. Stunning.S ervice was prompt and courteous and security very good. Remote control blinds and curtains was great but lack of a sound system a terrible oversight. Location is ideal with a plethora of dining options at your feet and the CBD only a brief stroll away.
