Most recent review:

What I liked:

Conveniently located and the rooms and bathrooms are spacious and well appointed.

What the hotel could do better:

We had a room with an adjoining door to a neighboring room. The room next door had a very loud crying baby which was clearly audible through the door and kept us up at night. While this is obviously no fault of the hotel, perhaps they should make an effort to not book unrelated parties in adjoining rooms.

Hotel Description

‘Ambitious’ might not even cover it. The Crown Metropol is a purpose-built 600-plus-room luxury hotel in a chic modern style, towering 28 floors over Melbourne — this, in just about any city, is the kind of project that’s becoming more and more rare. Which is a shame, considering the results. It’s a tribute to Melbourne’s hotel scene that it inspired the Crown’s owners with the confidence to pull it off. The Metropol aims to be a modern grand hotel in the vein of something like a Park Hyatt, providing a bit of homegrown competition for some of its neighbors.

Most of the rooms are the standard king or twin-queen variety, with plenty of space, far-ranging views, generous work space and indulgent bathrooms with oversized showers. Studio and loft up the spatial ante, and begin to feel ever more residential, a feeling which comes to its culmination in the very modestly named Apartment — most hotels, considering the lavish amenities, the separate entrance, the lounge and dining room, and the butler kitchen (!), would call it a presidential suite.

The full-service spa is quite complete as it is, but also offers spa suites for those who prefer a more seamless transition. A pair of Gordon Ramsay restaurants ensure the Metropol will be a fixture on the Melbourne dining scene, and the rooftop lounge, 28, is a unique space in a city that’s not exactly accustomed to skyscraper-top living.
