We booked to stay at the Hilton on the Park for 5 nights during the Australian Open tennis. The second stop on a world tour. What a great position – it’s ideally placed for walking to the tennis around the MCG – approximately 10 minutes.
The “free tourist bus” also has a stop just across the road in the park, and the trains and trams stop on the road outside the hotel. Metcards (for the trams) can be bought from the 24/7 shop 50 yards up from the hotel.
We arrived early but our room was ready so we could check in at 1.00pm. The room was clean and comfortable and quiet even though it faced Wellington Terrace. It had the usual Hilton amenities: fridge, hairdryer, toiletries etc
WiFi was free in the reception/lobby area – authorisation codes are collected from with the receptionist or concierge. The receptionists and concierges were all extremely courteous and helpful.
We had a room only package so used the local restaurants for all of our meals – “Coffee on Wellington” for breakfast and a variety of restaurants just along the road for our evening meals.
The hotel – although way from the hustle of Fed Square, was a pleasant walk into the “city” and to the tourist tram around the city.
Ideal position for any sporting fixture and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
