I recently stayed at the Hilton Melbourne South Wharf for 5 nights when attending a conference at the Convention Centre next door. The hotel decor is pleasantly understated and reception staff were professional and efficient. We stayed in a standard twin room; no fabulous views here (we overlooked the DFO carpark!) however the beds were SUPER comfortable and I had five great nights' sleep, which is rare for me when away from home.
The only bug bears (and the reasons why I can't give this otherwise excellent hotel a 5-star rating) were; (1) on one occasion we found that the bathroom sink had not been cleaned out during housekeeping and was filled with murky water, and the toiletries had not been restocked, and (2) on another occasion, housekeeping had left all the dirty sheets in a pile on a chair. Somewhat sloppy for a Hilton! Perhaps a third bug bear was the lack of free wi-fi in the hotel rooms (its only available on the ground floor, otherwise internet connection is charged for).
However, for proximity to the Convention Centre, the Hilton can't be beaten. 4 stars!More
