I had booked a night at Crown Towers for my wife and I as it was our anniversary. We wanted to experience a day/night around Crown Casino - where we used to frequent on dates early on in the relationship.
I had booked a Premier Suite, which at $960/night was certainly not cheap, but we were pleasantly surprised upon checking in however as the manager informed us we had been upgraded to a Deluxe Villa. Wow! This is more of an apartment than it is a 'room'. There is a huge living area, dining room, bar, office area, bedroom, bathroom with walk-in dual shower, spa, walk in wardrobe etc.
With this in mind you'd be inclined to simply stay in the Villa and not go anywhere, which of course you can with it's incredible space and facilities, but you also have the surroundings of Crown for shopping, dining and of course gambling. The Villa does feel more suited to a high power business traveler (it has a fully functioning office area, dining area that is more like a boardroom, full bar area etc), but it does work very well as a romantic and classy getaway for two, particularly if you're planning to stay in the city for a few nights and want a full sized living space to settle down in.
An incredible and memorable experience, we were very pleased with the room (and of course the free upgrade to it!), the services, and the amount of entertainment on hand in the Crown complex itself.
