Excitement Mounts Over Melbourne’s Crown Casino Refurbishment

Melbourne’s Crown Towers Presidential Villas is rightly regarded as one of the best hotels in the country – certainly, at $27,500 a night, it is Australia’s most expensive. And now, following legislation in December to increase the number of gaming tables permitted to Crown Casino, the hotel is to undertake a major expansion of its gaming facilities.

It is not the only improvement underway at the exclusive hotel, now 13 years old, as spokesman Gary O’Neil explains: ‘there is a very substantial refurbishment going on at the Villas. The high-roller market is very competitive internationally and the facilities in places like Singapore, Macau and Las Vegas are constantly being upgraded.’

High rollers are thought to account for a third of the casino’s revenue: these ‘whales’, as they are often called, regularly occupy the hotel’s luxury villas for weeks at a time – many travel from Asia, making use of the Crown’s private jet at Essendon airport. And soon they will be able to enjoy a renovated private gaming experience in the Crown – by invitation only on floors 29 through 36, and with extreme-stakes VIP salons.

Elsewhere, the already impressive Mahogany Room will see an expansion that features new roulette, blackjack and baccarat tables – and there’s provision for stakes of up to $280,000 a hand in the pipeline!

Within a few months, the Clarendon Street end of the complex will see the completion of the Crown Metropol tower development, and it seems likely that this new part of the hotel will play host to many of the casino’s new tables.
