second time we have stayed here and just as good. We had the relaxation suite which was really lovely with an awesome view out of the floor to ceiling windows and the bedroom and bathroom are really lovely. Very comfortable bed too. The breakfast was good too even though the food was not very hot when we told the staff they were fantastic and cooked us a fresh breakfast. Would be very happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: Corner suites are have great views

First up let me say this would be a 5 star rating if not for the location. It's modern, well kept, staff are great, breakfast is good and the rooms are really good. I've stayed in both a two bedroom and one bedroom apartment there and it was very nice on each occaision, the bathroom in the one bedder was really awesome.
The executive lounge is very nice as well, one of the largest I've seen and has great views. The property has some very good/quirky artwork dotted around (I love the piece behind reception) and the overall impression is definitely premium.

I spend alot of time here and its by far the better of the two Hilton's in Melbourne. Great check in process, friendly staff, and nice rooms. What I dont get is the bar- its a baron wasteland typically and could be so much more. Interestingly, when it is busy its hard to get service. The gym facilities are good, but there is no sauna.

We stayed for two nights with a group of friends. We were all on level 14, the rooms were beautifully appointed, the blinds were great at keeping room nice and dark for a sleep in and yes the views were good.
Within a 10 minute walk we found a great cafe the Red Duck, which does a great breakfast, huge serves and all delicious. Great spot for the DFO next door and easy to catch cabs to go anywhere in the city. We found all the staff to be helpful and attentive.
We did not eat at the restaurant but did have a few drinks at the bar, which is also very nice area to hang out in. The caprioska's were great, the only issue was that when drinks were charged up, all came through as the same drink, which caused confusion at check out time.
