Courteous welcome from valet parking staff and convenience of being connected to the rest of the Crown complex.
the pool and gym facilities, the room was very comfortable
I liked the location as I was there to shop and to attend business meetings. The staff were exceptionally attentive and helpful.
Comfortable bed. modern design.
Shower was not quite as luxurious as expected.
The staff were friendly and efficient at check-in. The room was spacious and clean and had a lovely view of the city. The king bed was comfortable however the doona had a black mark on it and the sheet had a little tear (probably not what you would expect from a five star hotel).. Check out was a lengthy process but overall we had a pleasant stay.
I didn't really like the 'make shift' wall between the bathroom and bedroom and there was no bath tub (we stayed in the Deluxe King Suite)
