September review
Reception is efficient. However, breakfast start time was delayed 39 minutes compared to 2 weeks ago, which caused inconvenience.

Not a genuine five star hotel
First room was very dingy with great view of a wall! Staff were really helpful and upgraded us to a better room with an amazing view for 25 bucks extra a night. Really this was the room we should of had but didnt want to quibble. Room service was patchy, food cold , wrong order. Bath not a full bath so no luxioriating. Bed a little uncomfortable. Front of house staff great and helpful. A very good 3 star an average 4 star hotel with great views if you get them.

Crowne Plaza Melbourne, Melbourne
We spent one night here on the wat to Canberra. We had the breakfast buffet, it was very good, lots of fresh fruit, ready to order omelette. A juicer to make your own fresh juice. We walked across the bridge to several different places for dinner.
