5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2010

My husband and I stayed in a Yarra Suite, amazing view, amazing room! The Executive Lounge was a great place to kick off the evening with the complimentary nibbles and drinks. Easy walking distance to all the key sights in Melbourne. Would definitely come back!

Beautiful hotel, love all the timber and artwork. The staff are great and make you feel comfortable and at ease . Not intimidating at all ( which some hotels can be).
Staff go out of their way to help. Love the bar and breakfast is great. The most comfortable beds!!

If you are looking for luxury, location and service... then Hilton South Warf is the hotel for you. My husband and i live in remote Victoria and visit in Melbourne regularly... until recently we used to "hotel hop" until we descovered Hilton South Warf. Situated right next to a brand new DFO and within walking distance of the city... the location is impecable!! Combine that with very professional and efficient service and a breakfast buffet that caters for all dietary needs... i couldnt recommend any other hotel.

My wife and I were in town for a wedding, this was a reward stay at the Hilton South Wharf. The points costs were HIGH so we had HIGH expectations for the new property. Upon check-in a bit of miscommunications resulted in our being assigned an "accessible" room. When brought to the attention of the staff they changed our room without hesitation. The rooms were all beautifully decorated, matching the overall "feel" for the rest of the property, a great vibe. The concierge made some reccomendations for our dinner-out and personnally made inquireies and reservations; the selection was spot-on! We just loved the Executive lounge, hotel location and the staff, attentive and very accomodating. We were disappointed with the lack of free internet access to a Diamond member (outside the Exec louonge) and the level of live entertainment in the lovely wine bar & resturaunts in the hotel. We addressed the entertainment issue on a comment card. Within a couple of months we recieved an email from the hotel stating that live entertainment is now a regular event in the Sotano bar! You can easily tell this staff takes you seriously; we'll be back!!

We spent a lovely weekend to celebrate an anniversary. Good facilities nearby , great location on rivers edge and good shopping in South wharf. The room was large and modern in decor and great views of southbank and city skyline, especially at night.

The sevice at this hotel was great it is the 2nd time we have stayed there,
room really nice and we had a great view.
If you love to shop you couldn't ask for better location as it is right next door to South Wharf DFO.
Breakfast was probably the best part of our stay.
The only thing I was dissapointed with was there is no pool or spa but we could live without that.
