“Very Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

The hotel is very new and trendy. The rooms were perfect! Lovely views over Melbourne. Located in South Wharf, it is in the middle of the the DFO and Convention Centre which would appeal to people visiting a convention, also quite close to Crown and Southbank where you have a myriad of restaurants to chose from. Perhaps not the usual area you would stay in Melbourne, but very central to the city and many attraction are only a short walk or cab ride away.

Booked a room with city views and access to the executive lounge. Room had great views of the city, Yarra river and of Southbank. While the fiancé went shopping I spent time in the executive lounge. The lounge was nice and quiet. Read the papers, drank coffee and chewed on a few snacks. Before dinner we both went back to the lounge and enjoyed some nice red wine and canape's.
Overall I would highly recommend all the features of the Hilton. Gents make use of the lounge while the girl goes shopping at DFO. Makes both happy.

Spent one night here prior to a conference and had a great stay, from the minute I got out of the airport transfer when a delightful young man took my bag and escorted me to reception till after checkout when another lovely man escorted me out and, hailed a taxi and sorted my bag and opened the taxi door for me. I was early so my room not ready but a text was sent as soon as the room ready and was appreciated. The room was excellent, view of the cityscape, road and Yarra not very interesting in the daytime but at night the lights and activity were pleasant to watch from the full length windows. Double glazing meant there was minimal traffic noise from below. The room was clean and had everything I could have needed for my stay as there was a small kitchenette with quality teas and coffee. Toiletries lovely and a robe and slippers were provided. Other features were the automatic black out blinds and a pillow menu. The bed was so comfortable and I had a great nights sleep, the bathroom was also excellent with a full bath and toilet separated by a glass door from the rest of the bathroom. A full sized hairdryer was provided and I found the night light situated in the bathroom handy for finding the bathroom in the night and stopping disorientation when waking in the night. A full length mirror was in the room as well as some natty reading lights above the bed. The radio was good in that it had preprogrammed stations to be able to select quickly the type of music you wanted to listen to, All over the stay was enjoyable and I felt safe as a female travelling alone. Nearby is a small supermarket to purchase any extras you may need as well as being right next door to the DFO. There is a bit of a walk to the city centre but do-able as well as nice restaurants nearby to eat. There was only one downside and that was $29.00 per night for the internet, apart from that great.

Room Tip: The higher floors have minimal road noise, just a hum in the background.

Stayed here for our anniversary two weeks ago. Just love how special we feel when we stay here. The rooms are gorgeous, the staff are wonderful, the food is excellent and I had the best pre dinner drink I have ever tasted, a pear and rose martini - exquisite! On top of this its only a hop skip and jump to Southbank, DFO is just next door, excellent choices for dinner very close by. The view down the Yarra and over Melbourne CBD from our room was extraordinary. Might only do this for special occasions but will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Get a city view room with breakfast package. The view is amazing.The beds are fantastic, like sleepi...

Newer hotel in great location right on the wharf at South Bank in Melbourne. Next door to the DFO for the wife to enjoy shopping and close to some very good restaurants and cafes. Short walk into the heart of Melbourne and very easy to get around. The staff were friendly and efficient in the normal Hilton manner and the layout of the room was very good.

Room Tip: Look at the upgrade to Executive level. Good value
