“Good location, great ambience, lovely view”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Have had a favourite hotel in Melbourne for a long time, but just happened to try The Hilton on our last trip. We will stay there again. Rooms were lovely and spacious, air conditioning was perfect, view was great and staff were helpful and polite. It is a reasonably short walk to Southbank and there is a big shopping centre right next door. Here is a tip though. If you have a car and are returning to The Hilton off the highway, make sure you get off the highway at the correct turnoff otherwise it is a good 35 minutes to navigate your way back through Melbourne city when you are not familiar with it.

This hotel is situated right next door.... with a covered walkway to the entrance doors.
Our family shared a 2 Br suite to attend a business convention. A feature for us was the amazing views of the city skyline and the very comfortable beds. Staff were friendly & always ready to assist especially the concierge team.

Perfect location, DFO shopping outlet (next door), and 7 day convenience store. Can highly recommend the coffee shop Caffe Cino on the ground floor. Plenty of restaurants and bars close-by plus a food court in the adjacent mall. Even subsidised car parking (speak to Hilton concierge).

What we loved.. was to be to be able to return to our room between sessions, grab a bucket of ice from the machine on our floor, put our feet up and enjoy a bottle of wine with lunch........ Very pleasant!

Room Tip: Amazing views from the higher floors.

Check in and chcking out was a bit slow, other than that it was a nice stay. The room was very clean and bed very comfortable. Valet parking was extremly expenses, I asked if they were going to wash the car at that price! The bar was nice, limited range of food, had a bowl of fat chips.

Our family stayed for 3 nights 27-30/12. Great location for out of towners. DFO next door shoppers paradise lovely walk to casino and other attractions.

The staff and rooms (city view) all above expectations. Little convenience store next door well stocked for those little treats. We will definitely make this hotel our regular when next in Melbourne.

Also good room rate at peak season.

Stayed for 3 nights on a girls weekend away. We immediately received a complimentaty upgrade when checking in, before even mentioning our purpose for the stay. We requsted rooms close to each other which they accomodated with no worries. The upgrade meant we were higher up with views across the river to the city. Fabulous. The rooms were beautiful, very spacious with great decor. Service was fantastic in every area of the hotel. Certainly made our weekend experience extra special.
Fantastic location, great for DFO shopping, plenty of breakfast locations & a nice walk along the river to Crown casino & all the entertainment & dining it has to offer. This hotel is far enough out of the hustle & bustle of the city but still close enough to walk to the CBD if need be.
Thanks to all the staff for helping make our weekend memorable!
Would recommend this hotel to everyone. Looking forward to hopefully getting the opportunity to stay here again.

I stayed at Hilton Melbourne South wharf when attending a concert at the MCEC Plenary. The hotel could not be more conveniently located - in fact if the weather is inclement, it isn't even necessary to step outside. The hotel is new so decor is modern. The bathroom is well designed and the shower head gives a very satisfactory massage. Pillows were great - comfortable and plentiful. I really enjoyed myself on what was an unfortunately brief visit.
