“lovely views and great room with awesome bathroom”
Reviewed June 15, 2010

Stayed here for my Birthday. We had a relaxation suite which was really lovely. Big comfy bed, big TV, huge bathroom with a huge shower and nice deep bathtub. The room had huge floor to ceiling windows looking up the Yarra River which was a great view. Even had a coffee machine, a dishwasher and clothes washer./dryer. The breakfast downstairs in the restaurant/bar was very good and you can get your eggs cooked anyway you like them. A very good hotel. Loved it.

Stayed May 2010, traveled as a couple

My wife & I stayed at the hotel to celebrate our anniversary. We were provided with a room on the 17th floor with stunning view of Melbourne City. The decor is modern & stylish. The location is just a short walk from many attractions including the Crown Casino, Village Cinema, Docklands, City Circle Tram, NGV........and of course right next door to DFO.

After a long day of sightseeing and of course shopping, we were so surprised to find a chilled bottle of champagne and a plate of strawberries on the table with a greeting card from the General Manager Michael Bourne! Thank you so much.

Also my wife loved the seashell laced with the Romance essential oil left on the pillows.

Breakfast has so many selections from fresh juice to personalised omlette cooked to perfection by the Egg Chef. All the staff are always friendly and helpful. Thanks for such a wonderful stay & this will be our first choice of hotel in Melbourne.

We had a marvellous time at the Hilton on our recent visit to Melbourne. I liked the position of the hotel which was out of the hurley burley of central Melbourne, but near enough for a pleasant walk in to town.
The service was impressive and friendly. I had a problem with my booking which was resolved swiftly and fairly. I am told the restaurant is excellent, but did not eat there so cannot vouch for it myself. The breakfast buffet was very good indeed .
I loved our room, big and airy. The bathroom was excellent with a seperate shower.
Outstanding bar in this hotel. A proper bar with a good choice of beers and friendly service.
Well run Hotel. The manager and staff should take a pat on the back. Well done.

This hotel is one of those new-build international Hiltons built to the chain's latest standards, which are quite good indeed.
The rooms are very spacious, tastefully decorated in a modern style, and display very good craftmanship and materials.
The executive lounge is extremely spacious, has free internet, and tasty if limited eating options (continental breakfast only). Lounge's day manager is very hospitable, while some of the other staff are still learning their jobs.
The area around the hotel is developing fast; I understand it is now near completion. The central business district is only a short walk away across the river, where one can take the free tram if tired.
If taking the aerobus from the airport, the Hilton is the first stop on the free connecting shuttle, making for a short trip at much lower cost than taxis.

Checked into our room late at night to be met by the most amazing view of the lights of Melbourne through the floor to ceiling windows - truly breathtaking.
Very modern room with all the trimmings. The best bed ever - so big, plush and cozy - I want one at home please !
Breakfast was excellent in a very hip restaurant. Great service from friendly young staff.
Position not the best but still think this hotel is up there with the Intercontinental which is our favourite Melbourne hotel.
We will be back for sure.

We stayed at the Hilton South Wharf for the 4th time it is one of the best hotels in Melbourne with an unbelievable view of the city skyline & the river. It is a very modern hotel with excellent service & ammenities close to all that Melbourne has to offer. This stay was for a birthday celebration & it was very well received by my partner who had a very relaxing weekend at the Hilton in a beautiful room with great service.
