This sleek urban sanctuary offers all guests the VIP treatment. You can choose between upscale rooms, lofts and apartments all at different price points – but it’s the world-class facilities that set Crown Metropol apart. Zoning out in the infinity pool on the 27th floor is a must, as is enjoying a cocktail or two at the 28 Skybar Lounge, which boasts sweeping city views. Crown is also home to many of the city’s best restaurants by world-famous chefs, including Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner by Heston and Neil Perry’s Rockpool Bar & Grill.
Time Out tip: If you’re staying here during the week, then take advantage of the ‘Mid Week Indulgence’ package at what could easily be Melbourne’s most luxurious day spa. For $200, you’ll receive a 60-minute relaxation massage and a two-course lunch at Crown’s French restaurant Bistro Guillaume.
