“Mother/Daughter Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

We arrived early and were greeted by a friendly staff member at the Bell desk who handled our luggage so we could go and shop. The room was a welcoming relief after a day of shopping, the bed was luxurious. It was a nice walk along Southbank to the theatre district for a show at night and we woke to a beautiful breakfast the next day. Staff were always helpful and pleasant.

We stayed here for two days last weekend and loved it. The location was great to walk any where in Melbourne CBD. Easy walk to Etihad Stadium and MCG, Great shopping near by. The staff were very helpful and friendly

Room great, our king-size bed was a little too soft for me but hubby loved it. Clean, nice, minimalist decor which I love and a bathroom which is absolutely the best with full size separate bath & large shower for my 6'4" husband. Love the white fluffy bathrobes too. Staff were friendly & attentive. Electric 100% block out blinds were Awesome!! Walking distance to Etihad Stadium, Southern Cross station, convention centres & casino. Love Sotano wine bar & tapas downstairs; it's a great place to wind down and they have a fabulous cocktail list. With DFO right next door and countless great dining options within a short stroll, it's got the best of everything. It's also easily accessible from the freeway off ramp from the eastern suburbs. Well stocked minibar but again, no Victorian beer (Crown Lager or Carlton Draught) for my hubby. $50/night for valet parking is my only criticism. WAY too expensive!!

Very recently I stayed at the hilton south wharf with 2 other adults and a young baby. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites. The rooms are lovely and full of lots of amenities you wouldn't expect in a hotel. Room was equipped with self contained kitchen with microwave and dishwasher which was very handy when traveling with a baby. 2 seperate bedrooms with sliding door access to the living area. Disappointing that when the suite slept four people there was only enough lounge space for 2 people to sit. The black out blinds are great. Views during the day are also great if you book a city view suite. More a view of the freeway if looking from the opposite side of the building. Port a cot that was brought for the baby only had one blanket which was also disappointing. 2 bathrooms were very handy and the showers great.
On a whole hotel was good. Very strange display of Mercedes Benz cars complete with price guides make the foyer feel like a car sales room. Really didn't seem to be a reason for them being there.

Hotel starting to show its age marks in the rooms and corridors. Bed was uncomfortable called to see if they had a pillow menu. They didn't got two pillows bought up 30 min later I tried calling back to say don't worry but was on hold for ever. Service level disappointing.

Room had great view of the city
Good location right by the convention centre and dfo

Excellent location, and service. Bar menu is rather pricey. Rooms are very well kept and beautiful view of the city. However the internet service is not ayt allreliable and is quite expensive and could impact a decision to stay at this hotel.

The breakfast at this hotel is unlike any ordinary hotel. It is simply delicious. Staff are very well trained. If there is anything i like best about this hotel, its their breakfast. Second thing is the gym. The gym here is well equipped too. I would stay here again if I have the chance to go to Melbourne.
