“Top quality accommodation and service”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We have just returned from 6 days at Hilton South Wharf. We booked early for 30% off and believe we had amazing value for a city view executive room and access to executive lounge. To have the amazing view of the City and Yarra and such a comfortable room for $249 / night was impressive. (Fantastic bed, pillows and bathrooms) Every staff member went the extra mile and took the time to have conversation and offer more than what you had asked for. Having live music in the executive lounge was a really nice touch on two of the evenings we were there, the cocktail / tapa lounge was enjoyable and well hosted by the able staff. I enjoyed the walk back from the busier South bank end and liked to look back to the Yarra and city lights. Very handy across the foot bridge to catch the free tram, right next door to the DFO mall and lots of bargains, and excellent access to the convention centre. Thank you to all at Hilton (especially Ikumi and Jason - go the extra mile) for making our stay completely comfortable and enjoyable. Our rental car was organised by the HIlton and was delivered and picked up from there - so convenient. I'll stay very happily at the Hilton in the future if I get the opportunity but will highly recommend it to others. My only wish was there was a swimming pool and spa.

Room Tip: Executive room with City view on a high level

We booked and got a good deal and on arrival we were upgraded to include breakfast and top floor executive room for minimal extra which was really appreciated with all its little extras.
The view right up the Yarra and the city skyline was a fantastic sight. The breakfast was second to none and was made more perfect where we were served by Shelley who treated us as if we were the only guests having breakfast. She took the time to talk to us and during that conversation we said that we had recently lost our son and she was beautifully understanding and brought us 2 macarones and on the serviette she had drawn a smiley face. We thought this was beyond reproach and that Shelley is definately an asset to the hotel .

Room Tip: Definately the top couple of floors

We had one of the top apartments that cost us a fortune. It was a special occasion so we thought we would splash out..... The view was amazing but that was the only good thing....went into the mini bar and there was half eaten cheese and biscuit's in there... Our bath had hair in it and was still wet, the sheets had holes in it and the milk was curdled.... Yuk...Our food we order to our room was very average. In general a real disappointing and over priced adventure.....
At check out our complaint fell on deaf ears and the receptionist did not show any concern or offer advice in how to handle our complaint.... I was really upset at what we had received for the amount of money spent so I emailed a formal complaint to the hotel manager.... Weeks later I received a reply expressing that they were thankful for my feedback and on our next visit to the hotel we would receive a discount...... Sorry Hilton but special occasions are sometimes a one off and sometimes you only get one chance to get customer service right. We will not be returning and a discount is a poor effort in trying to make appalling experience and neglectful customer service right. Since then we have stayed in a few other hotels in Melbourne that are cheaper and offer exceptional service and environment. My advice would be shop around and look at the smaller boutique hotels as you may be surprised at the value for money that they offer.....
Hilton on the wharf..... Think about it!!!!!!!

Room Tip: With my experience I wouldn't recommend any

My husband and I loved our stay at Hilton South Wharf. From the comfortable bed, to the shower room, to the block out blinds, we were very impressed. Staff were helpful and we loved the evening meal in Nuevo 37 and the buffet breakfast in the morning. A minor concern was the noise from trams and vehicles even though we were on the 12th floor.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the city to enjoy the lights

This is our 4th visit to this hotel and again we were very pleased with our stay.
The hotel is located in the South Wharf area of Melbourne and is a very well maintained property.
One feature is you are next to the DFO,so shopping is an easy stroll.
Rooms are generous in size and well maintained.
Bathrooms are great.
Meals are 1st rate. We enjoyed a generous daily breakfast buffet and one evening had a meal in the Nuevo37 dining area and were very pleased.
Staff through out the hotel are 1st class.
Issue with Expensive adds : I believe the hotel needs to look at is its valet parking charges…at $50 a day it is close to the dearest in Melbourne.It may be the deal breaker going further as when it is added to the room charge it makes the cost of the stay quite expensive.
Maybe profit gouging !!!
Also free access to WIFI in the rooms should be part of the room charge for any hotel today.
Having to go down stairs to the lobby is not what one expects from a luxury hotel.
Again profit gouging which makes one look at other hotel options.

My Wife had stayed here a few times for conferences seeing that it is right beside the conference centre and after hearing about how comfy the beds were we thought we would use it as our base for a little family getaway. We stayed up high in one of the 2 bedroom rooms and the beds were as good as promised. The staff were all great, very friendly and accommodating. As part of our stay we had a roast meal included and this was very nice and the breakfast was sensational. Highly recommend it.

To celebrate my birthday we chose to stay at the Hilton South Wharf for a night. Rates were reasonably expensive via the hotels website but being Daimond Hilton members we were upgraded to a deluxe room making the $300 slightly better value.

Check in was very friendly and as our room wasn't ready, we were offered free drink vouchers to use in the bar and given access to the executive lounge.

The room itself was well equipped, with separate shower and bath, all the usual conveniences plus some more such as bath robes. With floor to ceiling windows offering amazing views over the city.

The Executive lounge is well worth having access to, being located on the 4th floor, it is open for breakfast, then serves coffee/biscuits throughout the day. 3pm to 5pm they serve cakes, and from 5pm onwards a nice selection of canapés and beer/wine. Diamond members receive a free breakfast, either continental in the lounge or full buffet in the restaurant, which we chose.

Location is right above a DFO outlet mall, around 5 minutes walk to the casino and perhaps 10 to the city which is across the river.

This is a great hotel, with a handy location and surrounded by a good choice of shops and restaurants. For those that do not need to be right in the middle of the CBD, I highly recommend the new South Wharf area as a great option.

Room Tip: City views are spectacular, and worth the extra
