The Hermitage – The Crown Metropol Hotel Melbourne

If you are looking for an amazing hotel to stay in whilst attending the Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne, then the Crown Metropol should be on your hit list.

Located in the lovely Docklands on the edge of the city centre, it is walking distance to many main attractions, shopping precincts and close to transportation. The hotel itself is a beautiful example of modern decor and styling. I just love the artworks they have chosen to enliven the foyer of the hotel, huge timber ball sculptures by Korean artist Jae Lee Hyo and the gorgeous drips of colour in the mural painting by Melbourne artist Noël Skrzypczak. Both divine choices!

If you are a bit of a foodie you will love Mr Hive Kitchen & Bar, where acclaimed chef John Lawson will tempt you with his signature rustic french menu. Follow this with some evening drinks at 28, Crown Metropol’s sky bar and lounge which boasts some seriously spectacular views over the city skyline. The decor is as impressive as the views, think custom-made furniture, artwork by David Sequiera, a marble bar and a gas fireplace to make your stay as warm and cosy as possible.

Not a bad location to rest your weary heels after a day at the races!
