“Happy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

We stayed in a King size room for three nights. It was a good size and comfortable. I didn't find the hotel shabby maybe I didn't look hard enough or perhaps the room we had booked had been refurbished. I agree with the comment below regarding the taps for the shower - way too low.

There was some noise from the adjoining rooms, if you like silence for sleep you will need ear plugs.

Didn't eat at the hotel, but plenty of good and cheap cafes for breakfast close by. Ate at the Indian Restaurant a few doors down one night, that was okay too. Staff were friendly. Convenient for tram stops as well as the MCG and Rod Laver Arena.

Would happily stay there again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

We had a great deal on this hotel which was the main reason we chose to stay there. The location is great - opposite the MCG and a quick tram ride to the CBD hot spots. The staff were friendly and helpful. But the hotel is old. The bathrooms need some attention - eg. there is a bath and shower in one - which I have always disliked because you have to climb into a potentially slippery bath. Plus, the taps to turn the shower on are at the bottom near the bath spout - not very practical, because you need to turn the taps on and keep bending through too hot or too cold water to adjust the temperature to get it just right. Obviously poorly designed renovations. I would stay here again if it was a quick trip to Melbourne and a similar deal was on - otherwise, would choose elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to MCG

An older style hotel opposite the MCG, so extremely well located for sports events and just across the road from the very pretty Fitzroy Gardens and Captain Cook's Cottage. A short walk into Melbourne's CBD.
Our room was comfortable, clean and adequate, although the decor was a little jaded. Staff were friendly and the hotel has a nice pool area.

We stay here every year when we come to Mebourne for the horse races, cricket, tennis or football(soccer).We are always impressed by the room, the breakfast, the pool, spa and general service, although I guess by now a lot of the staff know us

Room Tip: When you book register for an upgrade to a relaxation suite, worth the extra money

Overall an excellent hotel. In the executive suite the rooms were comfortable and well appointed, although the bathrooms were a little small for the price. Room service and in room entertainment options were fine and the location is superb. No complaints, but it is very expensive.

I stayed here with my husband a couple of weekends ago. We got a deal from Lastminute.com.au, it was a mystery hotel. The hotel is about 10-15 mins walk from the flinders st so it's not too far away from the action. It's right across from Fitzroy gardens which is quite pretty to walk through.

The room itself was ok. For an older hotel I was expecting it not to be as "modern" as other hilton hotels. It was clean and everything in the room seemed to be in order. Otherwise, an OK stay and good value for Melbourne as hotels are quite pricey compared to other cities.

I wouldn't recommend the food or drinks the the Park Lounge. The value and quality are sub-par compared to the cuisine you can obtain the restaurants in the city.

This is by no question an older Hilton and yes well waiting an upgrade but the staff are great, the rooms nice and big, bathrooms need updating, but the bed is great!

I have now been there for a couple of conferences and certainly would be happy to return but looking forward to reading one day about an upgrade as this will make it a very special hotel...
