Regular readers will know that I visit Melbourne frequently for business, in fact, I’m down there so often I am practically a local (read about my ultimate girls weekend here). Well, maybe not, but I have been enough times (roughly 100!) to have well and truly decided on my favourite place to stay. Last visit I was lucky enough to experience the opulent luxury of a Crown Towers Melbourne Deluxe Villa. Crown Towers caters to the discerning traveler and regardless of whether you are visiting for business or leisure, I just know you will love this hotel as much as I do. Read on for all the details …
Crown Towers Melbourne Deluxe Villa
When I’m in town for business I have to select from my companies preferred list, while Crown’s three hotels are all on the list, I always choose Crown Towers and because I stay there regularly, I often get treated to an upgrade and other perks. While the standard rooms are luxurious enough, my Crown Towers Melbourne Deluxe Villa has to be seen to be believed.The luxurious lounge is the centrepiece of my Villa. I’m sad to say that I was here on my own as this would be a great space to host a few friends. Sweeping views across the river are the perfect back drop even on a grey day and neutral plush carpets and leather couches add the perfect touch of refinement. Of course everyone needs a dedicated dining room and bar area in their hotel room don’t they? Well they might not need it but it sure is nice to have it! The perfect space to enjoy a selection or two from the extensive room service menu. The king size bed dominates the roomy bedroom and business travelers are well catered for with an additional desk tucked in the corner. Closet space is plentiful and the thick drapes ensure complete block out to stop pesky early morning sun disturbing your slumber. While the red marble in the bathroom would not be my first choice of colour scheme, you cannot deny that every element in the spacious bathroom screams luxury. You could lose hours soaking in the mammoth tub, complimented of course by designer toiletries from Salvatore Ferragamo. The view is not bad either! The little touches such as fresh flowers, complimentary snacks, dedicated elevators and designer toiletries make it feel very special but at around $1500 a night it is definitely a splurge! For a great deal on accommodation check out Agoda.
As you would expect from a 5 star establishment, Crown Towers Melbourne does not skimp on the amenities. A world class gym, swanky pool and tennis courts are all present and accounted for but make sure you check out the Crown Spa during your visit. As soon as you walk in the doors you know you are in for a special treat. The Pure Gold Radiance Facial is pricey but worth every cent. My skin has never felt so good. Simply amazing! And did I mention you are directly above the Crown Casino? I’m not a big gambler but I usually through a tenner in the machines while I am here. Restaurants abound in the Crown complex and Nobu is one of my favourites. When it’s time to check out why not try the Melbourne Skybus to get you back to Tullamarine with ease.
