Crown Metropol Melbourne: HOTEL REVIEW

The Crown Metropol is the place you stay when you want to be a part of the action is the business end of Melbourne.

As any person not from Melbourne knows, this district is exhibition hall central, and as it turns out it's an ideal spot to rest your work weary head after a big day at events, where you go to regroup and rest and freshen up, before the hitting the town again for some of the very best restaurants within walking distance. Not forgetting of course that some of the most delicious food is right under the Crown Metropol roof.



The Crown Metropol has been likened to an 'urban oasis', combines modern accommodation with contemporary service.

It's the 'younger sibling' of Crown Towers and Crown Promenade, with the bold, distinctive, and aesthetically appealing Crown Metropol opening its doors in 2010 and designed by Bates Smart, described as an architectural feat for Melbourne’s landscape.

It houses 658 rooms, making Crown Metropol Melbourne is one of Australia’s largest hotels... but you don't feel like it's a monolith structure, instead the wave-shape design of the building cleverly creates a boutique hotel feel. Love that feeling!

The lobby immediately shows the personality of the hotel - the giant decorative timber balls and the impressive ribbon staircase, the hotel gives an inviting and warm feeling you always hope you get from your home away from home, even if it's for a day or two.

It's located on the corner of Whiteman and Clarendon Streets in Southbank, Crown Metropol and it's only a ten minute walk to the CBD, conveniently joining to the wider Crown Melbourne complex via an undercover sky bridge. And trust me, you will love this when you want to go exploring after a big work day!

No matter which room type you choose, you can expect high-tech urban glamour meets functionality with a bold yet quietly distinctive use of design. Sleek, white interiors are contrasted by use of metal, wood and stone, warm orange-hued earth toned carpeting, black oak panelling and a feature wall that defines each contemporary bedroom. European mid-century inspired mod furnishings, art and fittings are complemented with textured fabric sliding screens used to separate the ensuite and stone and bevelled
glass bathroom.
