I chose HIlton for points, I rarely travel for conference, but was told I couldn't earn them since i was on a conference rate, doesn't seem right. but that doesnt help with hotel. cable tv choices limited. maid would miss a few things seemingly every...

I was disappointed this visit. We stayed on the executive floor. I feel since we last stayed in January 2013 the standard has slipped. The service in the executive lounge was poor, at times there wasn't anyone to be seen.... I had to knock on what I thought was the kitchen door to find someone who could fix the coffee... More

The hotel is very nice, great location. Next to the promenade along Yarra, next Outlets, next Melbourne Convention & Exhibition. Walking distance 5-10 min to CBD. Maybe a Little bit to much limited variations in the breakfast menu, especially in the lounge you cant get any warm food unless you wait for 30min!! Normally the Hiltons have a level better... More

We were happy to have chosen that location for our 6 days discovering the beautiful city of Melbourne. The room was nice with an excellent view. It was somewhat shocking that in-room WiFi was only available for a fee, not even complimentary for Hilton HHonors members when one knows that most other hotel chains extend that courtesy. The hotel lobby... More

The hotel is in the best location if you are attending a conference in the adjacent convention center. The hotel connects on the 1st floor and you don't need to even walk outside. The hotel was overwhelmed by our conference and the service suffered. The staff are enthusiastic and eager to help but the hotel seemed quite short staffed.

I was in Melbourne on a Business Trip to attend a company conference. The hotel is a Good Business Hotel in a great location that allowed me to do early morning walks along the Yarra River. Strangely, in order to hold a meeting with a coffee at the hotel there is a curious combination of opening and closing times for... More

Went there for my wife's birthday. Had great views of the city and enjoyed spacious bathroom and bedroom. Only issue would be parking as it comes with a discounted cost using DFO's parking space. Great location. This place is equally as good as Sofitel in Melbourne.

Stayed for just a single night while my husband had a conference at the conference centre. We had a room overlooking the city with a beautiful view of the Yarra, and it was a pleasure to wake up to hot air ballons floating over the river and city. Very comfortable modern rooms and the location in an easy walk to... More

I stayed here for 3 nights over the end of year and had a very pleasant time at the Melbourne Hilton. The service was exceptional, check in check out was very smooth and efficient, this is so important to business traveller. The rooms are very comfortable and location is good, just within walking distance to venue I need to go.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Hilton South Wharf in Melbourne last week for a conference at the Melbourne Convention Centre. The location is perfect with the hotel adjoining the convention centre. The rooms are very comfortable, well appointed, modern and great views of the Yarra River. Walking distance to all restaurants and facilities a great hotel overall... More
