Hotel Review of the Hilton South Wharf City View Room

After previously reviewing the two-bedroom suite at Hilton South Wharf Hotel (read review here) we thought we would take the opportunity of a kid-free weekend to stay in Melbourne at the Hilton South Wharf again and enjoy one of its standard City Views rooms.

As we touched on in our last review, the location of the Hilton South Wharf is excellent – next door to the South Wharf DFO which is great for shopping as well as the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre. In our opinion, this location gives the Hilton South Wharf the best views of Melbourne down along the Yarra River. For this reason, we would always recommend booking a city view room when staying here.

The standard rooms here are a good size with a nice big comfy bed. The bathroom is well set out and comes complete with a separate shower and bath. Like at all Hilton Hotels, the Peter Thomas Roth bathroom amenities now come in smaller sizes than they previously did. We love the very effective blackout blinds at the Hilton South Wharf, it makes for a good sleep-in. If you need to be up early, make sure to set an alarm.

If it is in your budget we would also recommend getting a room on the executive level floors. The extra cost is definitely worth it. The executive lounge at the Hilton South Wharf is a really large size with both inside and outdoor seating. We rate this lounge very highly compared to some other Hilton lounges. As well as all-day snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, the lounge offers breakfast, afternoon tea, and evening pre-dinner canapés with alcoholic beverages. The evening drinks are available from 6.00 pm-8.00 pm on weekdays and from 5.00 pm-7.00 pm on weekends. The drinks are self-pour sparking, wine and beer but you can order spirits from staff if that is preferred. Each night there is a selection of two hot canapés along with a good variety of cold canapés. Also since our last stay, the wi-fi here has improved and they have updated the computers which were nice to see.

During this stay, we also tried out Dock37 Restaurant and Bar for a bite to eat. All we can say is try the burger here, it is amazing!
