The 5 Best Hotels in Melbourne

1. Crown Towers – South Bank

The mainstay of the remarkable Crown complex soars over the Yarra River just five minutes’ walk from the city center. Accommodations are opulent and the amenities, such as the superb pool, are among the city’s finest. For many, however, it’s all about the casino, which is virtually downstairs, and the riverside bistros and bars surrounding the hotel.
