Lonely Planet review

Conspicuous consumption and even more conspicuous everything else combine to create one the country’s most lavish places to sleep. Rooms pull out all the stops with views, gadgetry, original artworks and contemporary-styled opulence. This being a casino hotel should be a hint to anyone looking for a subdued atmosphere to reconsider. On weekends, most of the guests are here to party.

Our independent authors have visited Crown Towers and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Melbourne.
