Shopper's paradise

CLOSER to home, but still in shopping mode, make the most of Melbourne's fabulous boutiques by taking advantage of the charming boutique hotel, The Crossley, in the heart of Chinatown.

The Crossley is offering Paris End Shopper's Paradise packages from just $199 per room per night, valid until August 31.

You'll not only find yourself slam bang in the middle of Melbourne's best shopping precincts, but the package includes discount vouchers to designer stores, a complimentary city travel pass and a relaxing foot massage for tired shoppers' feet.

The Crossley is an Accor property, so you know the standard is excellent, and it's surrounded by great restaurants, bars and theatres, making it a great choice for a weekend of Melbourne indulgence.
