“Melbourne Getaway”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

There was quite a queue to checkin and check-out over the weekend, but staff still greeted you with a smile.

I loved the decor of the room and it was very tidy. Our sleep could have been made better with nicer pillows - but that's a very individual thing and I always find that there's nothing like my own.

Our room was a luxe room on the 16th floor, with views over a huge Casino car park to the Eureka Tower, Rialto and Shrine of Remembrance (which got better at night). The room itself was spacious, with a chaise longue at one end and a huge bed, work desk. The bathroom area was super modern and is separated from the living space by two bamboo partition screens which can be pulled shut for more privacy. I laughed that you probably wouldn't stay here on a 'first date away' with someone as there wasn't much sound proofing between the bathroom and bedroom. The shower and toilet are two adjoining frosted glass cubicles within the bathroom which again leaves little to the imagination if you're not staying with someone you know well!! We loved the room layout overall, which was supported with really good soft lighting. Fantastic sound proofing, we slept really well.

Ate at the in house restaurant Mr Hive which was good also. Fairly pricy as you would expect for a hotel restaurant but top quality food (kingfish, seared tuna, scallops, duck breast, lamb with minted peas) plus a separate dessert bar, which you can leave your table to perch at and watch the amazing dessert creations being constructed.

Check in and out fast and efficient, even at peak times, when queues are frequent. Public car park right next door is $10 for 24 hours, saving you $30 from the price of valet parking, which you can then invest on cocktails at the Mr Hive bar (or at least we did).

This will be a hotel of choice for future city getaways.

Booked this on Wotif and got a great deal. Very chic hotel and located perfectly to get to Crown Casino or anything else in that precinct or the city. On the down side, the shower looked like it needed a good clean as the grout was badly stained, making it look older than it was. Also, trying to get a coffee at the breakfast bar was very time consuming, go off-site if you're in a hurry.

Stayed here over the weekend. The rooms are nice and spacious. The bed is amazingly comfortable. Close to all the shops and the casino. Rooms are modern and clean would stay again.

I stayed at Crown Metropol for 3 nights recently for work and must say even though I didn't get a chance to see the pool I was very impressed with the whole experience. The concierge and reception staff were very professional and friendly throughout my stay.
Overall, the room had quality and comfy written on it. The air-cond control was spot on and easy to use. The bed was the most comfortable bed to read in ie. the combination of the bedhead and pillows were just at the right angle. I didn't check but I think the HD TV had all the channels being offered in Australia - bot free TV and Foxtel.
I would have rate the hotel as excellent but it was let down by the breakfast being offered. For the $38 buffet breakfast, the selection and quality were pretty ordinary.. and.. I was told, "we don't do omelette". However, I must say Mr Hive Kitchen & Bar (where breakfast was offered) was nice and very clean.
Overall it was a good experience and I would go back to Metropol to stay.

This hotel is very nice. If you don't get the valet parking included there is a public carpark attached to the building which is so convenient. They also have nice little extras in the rooms like the latest edition magazines, sleepers and robes. The rooms are modern and clean. We look forward to staying here again

It was our first stay at the Metropol and I hope it won't be our last. In a nutshell the staff were fantastic, the loft room was magnificent, the views were spectacular and the pool was "to die for". It was a surprise for my wife on our 31st wedding anniversary and the only way I can see to outdo myself on next years anniversary would be to stay for more than one night next year because I can't see it getting better than that. Thank you Metropol for making this years anniversary the best one yet.

Room Tip: If you want something really special choose a loft room
