From the moment you drive into the entrance of this exquisite hotel, you know you’re in for a treat.
Below is our full review of our stay at Crown Towers Perth.
Our welcome experience at Crown Towers Perth…
We walked up to the concierge desk and were directed to the Crystal Club for our express check-in. The staff at the Crystal Club were welcoming, friendly and gave us a tour of the Crystal Club and what is included as part of that package. Keep reading below for more information on the lounge!
Our room was a Deluxe Villa and from the moment you walk into your villa, it feels like a home, this is not simply a hotel room.
As you enter, you have a dining room area followed by a lounge room.
This, of course, would not be complete without a Whiskey bar, mini bar, coffee machine.
All of this is overlooking the beautiful skyline of Perth.
The bedroom has an extremely comfortable King bed, chaise lounge, study desk (with an Apple MacBook) and the same magical view, what more could you want?
As you walk past the wardrobes towards the ensuite, you will notice plenty of cupboard space, a dressing table with hairdryer and a GHD hair straightener.
The moment you walk into the ensuite, you will be mesmerised by the sheer size of the bathroom. Dual vanities, plenty of mirrors, large bathtub and a TV.
A separate shower complete with a built-in seat for those who want to sit under the rain shower for a little longer.
The room had plenty of other perks which are absolutely worth mentioning… the sheers and drapes are both automatic.
If you’re in bed and realised you left the lights on or the drapes open – just turn over to your Samsung tablet on the side table and at the press of a button you can control all of these as well.
Our room came with a Butler service. We had only been in our room for 2 minutes when the doorbell rang. It was Ian, our Butler.
Ian introduced himself and asked if we had any requests. For those who are unsure what a Butler can do for you, it can be just about anything:
- unpacking your luggage into the wardrobe
- running a bubble bath at any time
- pouring your bottle of champagne
- arranging for your towels by the pool
- dinner reservations, even at the busiest of busy hot spots
- coffee to enjoy shortly after your wake-up
- and so much more
Imagine this… You’ve spent an entire day out exploring, say for example Rottnest Island. You’re on the ferry on the way back to Fremantle and driving back to the hotel. You’re exhausted and all you want to do is get into a nice warm bath to relax and soak your muscles after riding a bicycle all day. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the bath ready for you when you get back to your room and not having to wait for it to fill up? Yep… that is one of the perks of having your own Butler.
With our room came Crystal Club access. It is worth noting upfront that you can actually pay for access if it is not included in your package. So, if you feel like enhancing your Crown Towers experience, then for $90 per person, you can experience all that the Crystal Club has to offer.
Located on the 15th floor, the Crystal Club is where you can check in / check out and avoid the queue in the foyer. It is a one-stop shop concierge service. The welcome lounge is inviting, bright and spacious with incredible views over Perth city.
The Crystal club provides guests with complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and evening drinks and canapes. You can choose to have this inside or outside on the covered patio overlooking the incredible sunset.
Breakfast is available daily and you can order off the A La Carte menu. Monday to Friday it is available between 6.30am – 11am and on weekends from 7am until midday.
After you check in, why not enjoy complimentary afternoon tea between 2pm – 4pm. There is a nice selection of afternoon tea that would suit everyone.
Once you’re settled and had a chance to enjoy the grounds, definitely head up to the Club for evening drinks, canapes and an amazing sunset over the Perth skyline. These are daily from 5.30pm – 7pm and include a variety of hot and cold canapes as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
To be honest, if you didn’t have dinner plans you won’t need it as there is plenty to keep you going here!
Health and Fitness…
For those who like to stay active on holidays, there is a fully equipped gym which includes some cardio machines and weights. It is by far the most impressive hotel gym I’ve come across. It is just massive.
The pool area is massive! There are multiple pools, lifeguards and bars/restaurants around. You could very easily spend a day (or two or three) relaxing by the pool. I know we wished we had extra time to enjoy the resort!
Also attached to the precinct is the Casino. If you feel like a quick bet then take a wander over to try your luck! We managed to pick up a quick $100 which paid for a few drinks!
Good to know…
The Deluxe Villa includes complimentary valet parking – this is service that we found extremely useful. When you phone to get assistance with your luggage upon check out, give your parking ticket to that person and they will arrange for your bags to put into the boot for you. Makes things so simple!
Checking out couldn’t be easier at the Crystal Club. It was efficient and we had no issues at all.
Above and beyond…
A massive shout out to Ian, our Butler. He was helpful and provided us with a heap of information and made our stay really enjoyable.
The not so good…
This heading is pointless from our opinion. The hotel, hotel grounds and staff were on point. Everyone was friendly, professional and helpful.
A massive thumbs up from our point of view. Whether you’re a professional on a business trip, fellow travellers who are looking for a touch of luxury or locals who are looking for a staycation – Crown Towers has it all.
