“Relaxing, quiet, close to everything.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2009

Being situated opposite the MCG means it is very convenient for attending sporting events at that great venue, and with tram and train services located outside and opposite the front door, travel is made so easy. It's only a short tram ride to great shopping in Bridge Road Richmond. Amenities in the hotel are

I have been to many five star hotels BUT the Hilton on The Park in Melb is head and shoulders over every other hotel I have been to.

Just a perfect hotel, good location, upgraded rooms and every single staff member could not have been more friendly or helpfull.

When in Melb I will be staying at Hilton on the Park

My wife and I stayed here during our recent holiday to Australia...We left for our trip a day early and couldn't extend our stay at the Melbourne Hilton South Wharf, so we selected the Hilton on the Park for one night.

Nothing incredibly bad or great about the hotel...The rooms were a tad on the small side, a little dated...Small bathroom. The bed was typical Hilton (rather comfortable), the Executive Lounge was fair---decent breakfast but lacking in the evening snacks department.

The staff was okay, but didn't seem to go out of their way to make this HH Diamond member feel as special as other Hiltons around the globe do. There was not a lot in the immediate vicinity to the hotel...If you're going to an event at one of the nearby venues, it would be a great place to stay--walking distance to the cricket stadium and Rod Laver arena.

When (not if) we go back to Melbourne, we'll surely plan ahead to stay at the Hilton South Wharf, which was a better property in almost every aspect...It's not that this property was bad by any means--just the South Wharf property shines far above this Hilton.

Despite what some reviews say about the Hilton on the Park, our experience was very positive. We booked a relatively inexpensive king room through luxurydownunder.com and were very pleased with our accommodation. The room was suitably spacious, the bed was comfortable and the facilities were all excellent.

The staff at the front desk and in the bar were very friendly and positive. The prices in the bar were reasonable for a hotel of the Hilton's standing and we found the mood of the place most relaxing.

We thought that the parking fee of $20 per day was most reasonable by Melbourne standards.

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of previous occasions, years ago, and I believe that, if anything, the hotel has improved.

We stayed here after getting a great deal on the Hilton Hotels Website. The hotel is a little old but still very clean and tidy. The room we stayed in was nonly a suite however it was perfect for us as we only used it as a base to explore melbourne.

The greatest part of the stay was the breakfast which was included in the deal. I have stayed in quite a few hotels which offer a free breakfast only to serve a very basic spread. These guys had everything. The hot food was hot and the choice was amazing. The restuarant staff were very accomodating and even cooked me an omlette to order.

Overall i would definately recommend staying here. The tram stop is about 50 metres away from the hotel and the line takes you straight into federation square.

Staying here was very hard to imagine that we were staying at the Hilton!
Nothing wrong with the room ~ nothing to shout about either though! Very average but definately not Hilton standard.
Arrived at breakfast & they tried to charge us A$35 each for it! It was included in our rate!
When we arrived home I found they had charged me the full amount for the stay (that had already been paid to Expedia) & the breakfast.
After an irrate email, I received a full refund & an apology.
Why did this happen in the first place? Especially from a chain that prides itself on its service!
Reading the other reviews, it proves ours was not an isolated incident of a cock up or staff not knowing what they are doing!

We stayed yesterday at Hilton on the Park on the 5th Floor ,our room was facing the MCG. It was a hot day outside 36 degrees yet the airconditioner kept us in a pleasurable 20 degrees with hardly any noise.
I knew the rooms were 28sq so thought they would be rather small but was surprised as we had a King bed,chair,long desk and chair plus luggage stand.
The bathroom has bath with shower above and lots of fluffy towels.
A small alcove has the fridge plus kettle & mugs and coffee & tea sachets behind a door.
The room was very clean and looked like it has just been painted very well kept.
The room also had a safe,iron & ironing board plus bath robes.
The bathroom had Crabtree & Evelyn toilet items.
The buffet breakfast was excellent everything you could think of, the Gallery Restaurant has a lovely view across the gardens. The windows are so clean you are not sure if they have glass or not..
Bring your own bottled water as it is $6 per 300ml bottle in your room.
But as our water in Melbourne is very drinkable fill the glasses in your room and stand them in the fridge and the water is free.
But the best thing it was a quiet hotel never heard any doors or noise from the lifts(they have doors fitted to the hall entrance from the lifts).
I thought the hotel had few guests becuae it was so quiet but when we went to breakfast the Gallery room was nearly full of people.
This was a first stay and it was most enjoyable.
