“Great hotel for business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This hotel offers several great features. Situated next to the convencion centre in Melbourne, Victoria, its accesibility is great. A short distance to city downtown and next to the Yarra river which will make you enjoy a great view. The gym is well equipped. The rooms are ample and the breakfast buffet excellent.

The Hilton is a fabulously run hotel with memorable service as one would expect. Beds and plows are the best i have ever experienced. While food is a little on the expensive side, the quality is obvious.
I love the place even though it is some distance from the CBD, perfect for conferencing.

You've probably stayed in lots of Hilton hotels and to me this is the nicest I've seen, by far. Large spacious, well appointed rooms. Fantastic beds and big baths. Stunning wood architecture downstairs in the entry and restaurant. Located adjacent to the Melbourne convention centre, this is an affordable and amazing hotel.

I booked this for a few mates as a base for a Buck's party and at $600 (discounted apparently from wotif.com) we thought it would be mind blowing. The decor was modern and the apartment spacious however it was the view that cost us. We had a large 2 br overlooking the Yarra river which was nice however the windows were filthy which detracted from the appeal.

Overall a nice place to stay if you have cash to splash.

Room Tip: River view rooms are great if you can afford it.

Stayed in Hilton last week for a business trip, the staff was really friendly, and the room is very spacious compare to the other hotels in the city. Though not a lot of option on the room service menu, so had to go downstairs and eat at the cafe/restaurants/bars. Overall, very happy with my stay, will come back again for sure!

30 plus for a burger is not justifiable.
I dislike hotels who add ridiculous margins to room service
31.00 for butter chicken!
Sorry
Business travellers travel on a per diem
Lovely rooms
let down by F&B operation that is way too expensive.
Especialy when the whole place is huge and dead in the bar and rest area.

Room Tip: Riverside are better view Other side is nice citiscape

Stayed here for 3 nights in September,2012. Visit to Melbourne was to see the various exhibitions on offer as part of the winter cultural festival. Very happy with the hotel overall.
Interior is a little dark, but modern and the rooms are very well presented and accessorised.
Access to Melbourne's main exhibitions and shopping area is easy due to the close proximity to the Circle Tram which is provided free. Stayed on the Executive Floor and had access to the Executive Lounge. Lounge is good, but not as good as other Hilton hotels. Room with city view has great outlook. Transfer to and from the airport was easy. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Choose city view at a mid to high level.
