Check in here and the gateways to gourmet nirvana swing open

Few complexes in the world can match Crown when it comes to dining. Famed Australian chefs Neil Perry (Rockpool, Spice TempleThe Waiting Room), Guillaume Brahimi (Bistro Guillaume) and Maurice Terzini (Guiseppe Arnaldo & Sons) all have eateries at Crown alongside Nobu and John Lawson's Mr Hive Kitchen & Bar.

If you’re after a Melbourne gourmet experience but don’t want to travel far, then keep it simple and chow down at one of the riverside complex’s top eateries and grab a bed at the city’s slickest - and largest - hotel, Crown Metropol.

With Mr Hive located inside Crown Metropol, you can drink, dine and stay (and order the city’s best room service should you wish to spoon a loved one or new friend for an extra hour or two).

The indoor pool and sundeck on the 27th floor is not to be missed, while Time Out’s top tip for the hotel is to request access or to the club lounge (28) atop the 658-room hotel.
