Venue and Location
Crowne Plaza Melbourne
For three decades, the iconic Crowne Plaza Melbourne has played a definitive role in Melbourne’s rich cultural history. The hotel’s refurbishment was unveiled in 2020 and ushers guests into the new era Crowne Plaza locally, with design hallmarks, innovation technology and functionality which sit at the heart of the brand’s global transformation.
Throughout its entirety, Crowne Plaza Melbourne celebrates bold layers of timber, stone, metal and glass bringing its brutalist style and surrounding industrial heritage into a ‘New Modern’ era. Positioned in a creative and art driven city, our new outlets push boundaries on the expectations of hotel restaurants and bars. Our spaces feature unexpected textures, mix-and match furniture as well as diverse wall treatments and tiles with menus to suit their quirk.
Keep your wellness routine in check while you're on the go inside our new Fitness Centre complete with state-of-the-art TechnoGym equipment and floor space for the aspiring yogi. Or slip into the reimagined rooftop swimming pool; our private oasis atop the centre of the hotel. From contactless arrivals to guest service delivery, we have designed Crowne Plaza Melbourne with 9-TO-5 (Work) and 5-TO-9 (Life) in mind. Your stay with us will embody a new way of travel.
