2014 Open Tennis Tournament -- dates and hotel

I've seen different dates for the 2014 Open on the internet. One site said 17-30 January, another said 13 to 26 January. Can anyone confirm the dates? (I want to book a cruise leaving shortly after the tournament.)

And what is best hotel within walking distance of tournament site?

It is 13 to 26 January.

There have been some reviews of people who stayed at the Hilton on the Park.

There are plenty of hotels within walking distance. The tennis centre is not far from the CBD.

A basic Google "search nearby" will bring up the usual suspects.

I have been staying at the Langham Hotel for the past few years. I have also stayed at the Sofitel, the Park Hyatt and the Marriott. All of these are within walking distance, although the Marriott is borderline - it depends how much of a walker you are. :-)

It depends on how far you are prepared to walk

. It's about a 20 minute stroll from Southbank to the tennis centre, so any of the hotels there might suit.

Travel lodge is good if you are on a budget.

Langham is excellent if you are looking for high end and Quest at Southbank if you want more apartment style.

Add another 10 minutes to the walk and you can stay anywhere in the CBD.

Hilton on the Park is probably the closest.

The Lindrum is a lovely boutique hotel not far away in Flinders St.

I second the Lindrum, lovely small hotel with a wonderful restaurant, easy walking distance to the Tennis and the Treasury Gardens.
