Whether she's travelling on business or just for fun, Giaan Rooney has discovered there are three things that make a difference for her: great food, a big comfortable bed and a bit of pampering. In Melbourne
, she found a place that covers all of these things and more.
Hilton Melbourne South Wharf plays a very important part in the city's $1.4 billion entertainment, retail and residential development. Each of the 156 guestrooms and 78 deluxe rooms enjoy river, bay or city views and have large marble bathrooms with separate walk-in shower and bath. The executive floor has a private lounge with terrace overlooking the Yarra River.
Complimentary breakfast and morning and afternoon tea are served. In the evenings, guests enjoy canapés and drinks. French chef, Philippe Perrey, oversees the hotel's food and beverage operation. Café Cino is open every day between 7am and 5pm and serves fresh bakery goods and light lunches, served inside or on the outdoor terrace.
Sotano is a spacious bar where friends meet to enjoy a cocktail. It has a 2500-bottle wine cellar and spectacular 4.5m charcuterie tower decorated with hanging meats and cheeses. Its patio area overlooks the Yarra River. Nuevo 37 is a fine-dining experience in stylish ambience. It's open from 6.30am until 12.30am.
Something special about the hotel is that if you fancy some pampering, a day spa experience can be enjoyed in your room. Feel good and relax in private without having to step out of your door.
