My husband and I stayed 5 nights at this Hilton while I was doing a conference next door in the convention center. We both LOVED the hotel. It is sleek and modern, but with enough warm colors and interesting art and decor to avoid a sterile look. We had a magificent view out floor-to-ceiling windows from the 14th floor of the Yarra River and the whole city. We also received a little surprise gift of wine and nuts from the manager. The bed was wonderfully comfortable, the service extremely prompt-- every employee we met was immediately friendly and helpful-- and the breakfast buffet, simply outstanding. Most of all we loved the Executive Lounge where we enjoyed free coffee, soft drinks, and snacks all day and free wine/ canapes every evening in a beautiful serene setting. Once you've decided to spend the money on a luxe hotel, there's a lot to enjoy at this one especially by spending a bit more to get the Executive room and amenities. So, what's not to love? Two quibbles, both fixable. First, the internet charge was outrageous! $145 for a week or somethig like that. Second, there is a dim-lighting theme throughout the hotel that makes all the wood and red artwork glow, but in my opinion this should not be carried over to the guest rooms... there was adequate spot-lighting for the desk and reading in bed, but we were dying for a torchiere stuck in a corner to throw a little soft light into the room. All in all though, we'd return in a heartbeat, and hope we can.
