the jewel in the…

December 28, 2010

Being almost a neighbour of Crown’s gas burners (every hour from dusk, on the hour, seven days a week) I have mixed feelings about the place. Consumption, waste, almost 24 hour food hall, movie theatre, security… you can pick which of those are pluses and minuses but let’s just say there are advantages to having greasy food available at all hours… and disadvantages.

Nonetheless, perhaps Crown’s newest addition is Metropol. I’ve been quite in love with the Westin for Melbourne accomodation for years and Metropol certainly doesn’t match their service. I do love their more contemporary style though and there are worse things than being tucked up in a twin room with room service watching Farmer Wants a Wife with your gal pals at the Metropol. Highly recommended lady escape, or I imagine a nice romantic interlude or business bed. The pool has one of those insane views and level 28 is magic on a sunny day. The art is pretty fabulous too.
