Hilton South Wharf
Forming part of the new Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre precinct in Melbourne’s Docklands, the Hilton South Wharf hotel is closely linked to the Convention Centre Meeting Rooms and Banquet Hall to allow direct and easy access for both conference organisers and delegates. In addition to the guestrooms and suites, there are various front of house hospitality venues, including an Executive Lounge, a 600 person bar, a restaurant,and breakfast bakery.
Spanish-influenced cuisine compliments the tone of the restaurant experience with its rich red granite stone tops and steel frames.
The centre piece for both the Bar and Restaurant is a suspended wine gantry covered in rusted steel, which houses the full wine cellar of over 2,000 bottles. This gangway ends in an exquisite cheese and smallgoods scullery also accessed by two stairways.
A highly textural rope tapestry by Dani Marti adorns the foyer, adding material richness and supporting the overall design. The Hilton Hotel accommodates 364 rooms over 13 levels. There are also 32 deluxe suites over two floors and all rooms have been designed with an emphasis on modern living.
