This Hilton has a great location for moving around Melbourne on foot. It is located directly next door to the Convention Centre on the Yarra River. It has absolutely stunning views of the city and river. It's also a short walk to the Crown Entertainment Complex, which is a luxurious casino, dining, and shopping center. Skip over there for lunch instead of dining at the hotel.
The hotel is beautiful with it's rustic woodwork throughout, including the sleeping rooms. The best part of the room is the spacious bathroom, although if you really like privacy while in there, you won't get it. The toilet room has a 6" gap under the door, which doesn't leave much for the imagination. The shower fits two and is nicely designed without a door. The bed and linens are extremely comfortable.
There is a card advertising spa services in the room so I called to inquire if the spa had a sauna and its hours. I was told that there is no spa, sauna, or pool, and that if I wanted to arrange any spa services that they would arrange for someone to come to my room. I passed on that.
You can also catch the City Circle Tram not far from the hotel , which provides a free way for visitors to explore Melbourne.
