Crown Macau : The MacauTripping Review 2008

The Crown of Macau (Part 3) : Photo and Video Review of the Suites at Crown Macau

Crown Macau Taipa Review -  Electronic

The Control Panel

I've never seen an array of inputs like this in a hotel room before. Universal AC plugs, two ethernet ports (WiFi too) a ton of video, USB, 1/8 audio plugs. The possibilities for connecting to Crown Macau's entertainment system (flat panel TV/multi speaker hidden sound system) are endless. If you need to catch a meeting or host a meeting with your laptop on the flat panel... just hook up the monitor to the control panel. Got some kids that need drag their game consoles everywhere they go? You're in luck... you can hook the XBox or PS3 into the component audio/video inputs and like magic, they're murdering zombies in a flash. Frankly, I wish I had this stuff in my house.

The Entertainment Center

The entertainment center also features an angular desktop and cabinets that match the sub-cabinet of the desk. The flat panel tv is mounted on an angular hinge on the right side so it can be viewed from every part of the room. On top of the desk is an ice bucket, tea case (the brown thing) and current magazines in Chinese and English. The empty space to the left of the minibar is for temporary storage of the mini-coffee table in the case of in-room dining cart delivery... very very smart.

I have a hard time digesting the idea that there is no turn-down service.

Even the Hard Rock (istan) in Vegas has turn down service, and we know what a crap hole that place is.

It is the strength of word of mouth saying "this place hip, fun and sexy" - sorry they are never going to say that about Crown. You seem to be blinded by the 6 stars. It is honestly one of if not the most boring casino in Macau. The place is getting emptier each time I go there.
The hotel may be beautiful but thats not what Asians want. All they want is a cup of tea and when they are tired a quick sleep at the side of the table. You will notice most high roller rooms have massage chairs for them to sleep and their rooms are just somewhere to put their bags.

@alby22 - you're correct in a lot of your critiques of crown macau. the casino was -desolate- when i was there, and, yes it would take more than just word of mouth to change the image of the place... it would take adding a fun factor to the joint (which it doesn't have). perhaps i should've framed the conclusion differently. if crown is to compete in the 'new' macau, the one which is hoping to be an entertainment destination in addition to a gamblin' joint, then crown needs to get their entertainment, fun, sex, good times thing together. baccarat is baccarat, there is little difference whether or not they play it at casino jai alai or grand lisboa.

I had the luxury of spending 16 hours exploring Macau with several friends back in October, shortly after the Venetian opening. Not knowing much about the Macau scene, but being avid AC and Vegas gamblers, we spend most of our time walking around Cotai and Macau in and out of casinos and soaking in the area.

Crown was our first stop. While we did not stay overnight in Macau/Crown and thus cannot speak on the rooms or service, we all agreed that while not as flashy and tacky as some of the other casinos (see: Venetian), it was very classy, open, and clean. We visited over a dozen casinos over those 16 hours and of them, Crown was our surprise favorite (Wynn being a close 2nd).

Thanks for the review Chuck, it helps to fill in the gaps of the rest of the Crown outside of the Casino floors and restaurants we visited.

Alby, you seem to contradict yourself in your comment. You say that the Crown is the most boring casino in Macau, and then follow that up with a cmoment that all the Chinese want is a "cup of tea" and a place to sleep when they gamble. Which is it?

In my opinion, Crown does "boring" in an extremely classy way and a nice alternative to the Vegas-inspired Macau casinos. The VIP market, which Crown is aiming at isn't always looking for loud, obnoxious, and hip.
