“This is now my favourite hotel in Melbourne.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

My husband and I stayed her for our wedding night, and the night after.

I knew it was modern hotel, and I was hoping for the rooms to be spacious and comfortable, but I was blown away by just how lovely they were.

We were on the 17th floor in an Executive room, which I highly recommend to anyone.

The view from our room was gorgeous and probably the best views of Melbourne you can find anywhere.

What I loved about this room, among other things was the bath tub. I am a sucker for a nice, deep bath and this one ticked all the boxes. It was big enough for both of us to fit into without feeling like sardines, and the bathroom amenaties meant that it smelled amazing too.

They have enormous showers too, which is another great thing for couples and water savers alike.

The best thing though was the absolute comfort of the beds. Amazing. They are so soft and embracing that you don't want to get out of them. By far the best sleep I have ever had in a Melbourne hotel room.

We had access to the Execuitve Lounge and this was great too. The breakfast was great and the free internet and printer access was really handy.

We will most definitely be coming back here on our anniversary.

I spent 4 days here and what an excellent stay. I had a King Room facing the city and it was spacious and very tidy. The bathroom is well appointed with a separate bath and walk in shower. The views were magnificent. I had dinner there a few times and enjoyed the food. Also they make a very good strawberry daiquiri.

This Hilton proved to be above the average with attentive staff and well maintained rooms. It's nice to see a hotel that recognises the importance of a big smile welcome for the weary traveller. I booked on a 'room only' basis as a good breakfast is available locally for a third of the price. My room however, was absolutely excellent and I like the new innovation of a one number call for problems. The bedding and possibility to darken and cool the room was also excellent.

We stayed here in February 2011 and although it does seem more like a business hotel (due to its location)- our stay at the relaxation suite was a lovely experience. To sum it all up:
- Luxurious bed & pillows
- Stunning view (loved the floor to ceiling windows and the blackout blinds!)
- Great service
- Big rooms
- Close to the city

Highly recommended!

Whenever I travel to Melbourne I stay at the Hilton. Since the Hilton South Wharf opened a few years ago I have always stayed here as the location is excellent. Very close staggering distance to the Casino and a brisk 15 minute walk to the city (just across the bridge) The staff are great, the Exec Club very good, breakfast also great and I usually get upgraded to a large suite! I couldn're recommend highly enough. They also have apartments if you are travelling with families but with the Hilton comforts.

After checking out of Metropol because of the appalling treatment we received, the Hilton was just fantastic. The staff were extremely professional, efficient and personable. The beds are luxurious and the view from our room was simply stunning. On behalf of my family I would like to thank The Hilton for turning a terrible evening into a memorable one.

Nice large rooms sizes, and big floor to ceiling windows make these rooms feel nice and large. Block out blinds are fantastic for knocking out the light and giving you a great night sleep.
I've stayed here each week for 2-5 nights at a time through Oct/November, and whilst at first i found it to be a professional but a little cold (it is mostly a conference hotel), the staff soon remember you, which does make you feel nicer when travelling often.
Beds are super comfortable and always had a good night sleep.
Restaurant whilst well rated, I felt the food wasn't up to par with the reviews.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms on the lower floors get some street noise.
