Hotel Refurbishment For Crowne Plaza Melbourne

This will complement the recent $25 million refurbishment of our 402 guest rooms, which encourage a work-life balance with their bold yet calm design.
Upon completion, guests will not only enjoy our unrivalled location and breath-taking views of the city skyline, but also a suite of majestic new facilities designed to enhance their stay.

The upcoming refurbishment will see the transformation of a multi-functional conference centre, complete with innovative audio, visual, sound and lighting technology as well as a spacious pre-function lounge and beverage bar.
Our versatile event rooms have also been re-designed to provide greater flexibility and increased capacity. In addition to the refurbishment of our existing function floor, additional social and focused workspaces will be created to align with our ‘New Modern’ feel by incorporating bold layers of timber, stone, metal and glass.
Fully equipped with a fire place, contemporary furniture and food & beverage tablet technology, it provides the perfect place for professionals to hold meetings, co-working sessions or social gatherings.
Throughout the entirety of this new space, Crowne Plaza Melbourne embraces its iconic view of Melbourne’s sprawling city skyline.

Throughout the hotel, guests will enjoy a pared-back industrial aesthetic that brings the heart of Melbourne inside our doors. Renovations will also make way for a brand-new gym and wellness centre that guests can retreat to for some relaxation and rejuvenation.
INTRODUCING STATE OF THE ART DINING OPTIONS
