Crown Metropol Melbourne Officially Opens

Hotel Interactive, Inc. - Crown’s third hotel, Crown Metropol, will open on Wednesday 21 April. The new 658-room, $300 million AUD hotel reflects the urban and metropolitan context of the hotel’s design and location. The hotel was built over 27 months and employed over 5000 people during the building phase, with up to 700 employees working at any one time.

One of the world’s most famous chefs, Gordon Ramsay, has opened his first two Australian restaurants; maze and maze Grill at Crown Metropol. Ramsay and his chef de cuisine, Josh Emett are also responsible for the hotel’s room service offering and spa cuisine.

Crown is now able to offer guests, conference organisers and event planners over 1600 rooms from which to choose.

Australia’s newest property will attract international leisure guests as well as cater for global convention and conference delegates. The architecturally striking design includes a stunning, futuristic podium entry, a day spa located on the top floors of the hotel, a sky bar and terrace on level 28, the hotel’s highest floor, four meeting rooms and a retail precinct showcasing brands previously unavailable in Australia.

Local businesses and artists, such as Melbourne-based artist David Band and lighting designer, Steven Hennessy, were commissioned to create unique, custom-made elements throughout the hotel. Specially commissioned Australian artwork and Victorian materials feature prominently throughout Crown Metropol.

The hotel’s 658 rooms and suites is inclusive of 579 hotel rooms, 34 studios, 12 spa accommodation rooms, 32 lofts and one apartment-style residence. Lofts boast city views while studios feature views of Port Phillip Bay.
