We recently stayed for a night in the city for our 1st wedding anniversary. We have previously stayed at Crown Towers and loved the luxury. So were hoping for maybe a more modern interpretation of luxury from Metropol.
It certainly was modern and lovely, but the room lacked something. The decor was all minimal and dark tones which we normally love, but it kind of just felt...dark. We did have a city view from our 15th floor but you do feel a bit removed from the action of the city - a room at Crown Towers puts you right above the action below. Our view was predominately over the carpark below, and the hotel is set back away from the river.
No bath in our particular room, the shower head was your average water saving variety (no rain shower head, which is becoming the norm now), and the bathroom doesn't really close off completely.
There was nothing specifically wrong with our stay, just maybe expected a little more special touches for almost $600 a night. The Prince Hotel in St. Kilda is a perfect example of how to achieve minimal modern decor with an abundance of light, and a feeling of luxury without fussiness. Crown Metropol is a different hotel with it's own identity but on this occasion I felt like our room could have had more wow factor.
