My husband and I recently spend 2 nights at the Crowne to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. We thought a couple of days in the city would be a nice break. We used our Priority Club 2 nights for the price of 1 voucher and our 50% of dinner voucher. Which made for a reasonably priced weekend away, altho we did spend at lot more money in the city than we expected to, LOL. We are Perth locals but living in the hills we don't get to the city very often so it was a treat.
The hotel we did have a glitch when we checked in, but it was sorted promptly. Our room was on the first floor facing the park/river, with a balcony which was great to sit out there with a bottle of wine and watch the sunset and the energtic people on the park. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and suitable for our needs. Bathroom could do a revamp, but it was fine. Was suprised that we were only supplied with one coffee cup. Downside to a balcony room above the restaurant was we didn't get much of a sleep in on Sunday morning with the breakfast people right below our window. We did have to chase up housekeeping to do our room when we returned from 6 hours in the city I found that rather disappointing, but when I called to complain they were there in minutes.
Friday night we had dinner at Gusti. It was a lovely meal. My husband said his meal was the best he'd had in a long time. Breakfasts were nice with lots to choose from. I was surprised tho that unlike many overseas hotels, we had to get our own coffee. Many hotels we stay at they fill your coffee/tea for you. I hate working those coffee machines so for me that was a downer.
I found most of the staff happy, friendly and helpful. Some restaurant staff could have been a little happier. Valet parking was great, price a little steep but what choice do you have other than running to meter every how many hours to feed it or move the car to save a parking fine.
The walk to the city centre was lovely and not too far.
I would recommend this hotel for whatever reason you're in Perth. Reasonably priced, great restaurant and good location.
