This of course was a special place to stay. For me I was alone and or was business. Perfect room to unwind and work with a big fluffy bed, huge bathroom and full size work table. I had fantastic views over the city and a huge window to appreciate the sun going down and city lights. Service was perfect and... More

I have been staying here for the past few days as part of a conference in the adjoining Exhibition Centre and the hotel has been fantastic. Check in was fast and efficient. Rooms are fantastic and I believe most have either a view over Southbank, the city and the Yarra River. Mine had a view over Southbank and the city... More

I have stayed here a dozen times and its funny as every time I get a local visiting me they are surprised by how easy it is get there, and how great it is. By car you can drive in to the South Wharf shopping complex and park there, which is also useful if you rent a car. You can... More

Stylish furnishings, fantastic bathrooms (separate toilet, walk in shower and near full size luxury toiletries), city views, and super comfortable beds make this one of my favourite hotels. The location is not for everyone as it is attached to the convention centre, so not in the heart of town. However, it's right on the river, next to a DFO, and... More

The Hilton South Wharf is literally attached to the convention center. I thought maybe it would be out of the way but it's location on the newer side of the Yarra river is very close to lots of action. A short walk along the river promenade and you're in the action of the great shops and restaurantes of the busy,... More

It was a late stay, but the room was perfect. Everything you come to expect from Hilton, lovely view from the full height windows, black out curtains to help the sleep in and a massive shower to wash away the party from the previous night.
