The task of creating Crown's latest $300m, 658 room hotel, Crown Metropol, in Melbourne's prospering Southbank precinct was a challenge welcomed by leading Australian architecture and interior design firm, Bates Smart.

The newest hotel in Australia, Crown Metropol is the fourth Crown hotel

(1997), Crown Promenade (2003), and Crown Towers, City of Dreams, Macau

Distinctive, vibrant and unmistakably modern, the 28-level Crown Metropol hotel features a unique wave-like shape, sleek podium entry, 658 spacious, light-filled guestrooms, a luxurious day spa located on the top floors of the hotel, a sky bar and terrace on Level 28, Gordon Ramsay's maze restaurant and maze grill, extensive meeting facilities and dedicated Business Centre, and a world-class training and recruitment facility. .....more
