We get it. You have lots on your plate.
You need this meeting, this conference, this executive lunch to be brilliant. You need the departments to align, managers to sign off and for the Wi-Fi to stay on. At Crowne Plaza Melbourne, we work hard. Especially when it comes to business guests. We look after your deadlines, your details, your delegates, and you. But that’s not all we do. We make sure your delegate’s downtime is as productive as their work time. And their work time is as memorable as their leisure time. Because the better you are at switching off, the more you’ll accomplish when you switch on.
We’re all business, mostly.
At Crowne Plaza Melbourne we believe in Making Business Travel Work by bringing humanity to business travel.
Melbourne’s a great city for business and a brilliant city for unwinding. We can help your delegates do both.
No matter where you’re meeting, it’s never all work and no play. Let us help you make the most of business travel with insider tips to make every meeting rewarding.
Unlock your productivity with memorable downtime.
