A hotel that continues to improve

This hotel used to be known as Citigate and has been in transition since it opened under the Hilton banner on 1st December 2014. It resembled a building site for my first few stays but is improving - now on my 4th stay with this review. Its location is fantastic - you do not need a car if you stay here. The Railway Station is just across the road and Melbourne trams operate in close proximity. If shopping is your aim - where better to stay, adjacent to laneways full of fascinating cafes and boutique shops, with Collins St and ... the Bourke St Mall no more than a 5 minute walk away. Federation Square and the MCG are within easy reach as is Southbank, Eureka Tower and the Casino Precinct. read hotel review

Smack bang in Melbourne's CBD - just no parking
  • Recommended hotel

  • March 2015
This hotel is located right in the heart of Melbourne, opposite Flinders Street Station, note this is not the main country station. The staff are warm and friendly and willing to assist in even the smallest things. Being the first Doubletree Hotel in Melbourne they are excited to be part of the Hilton brand and offer the delicious chocolate chip cookies on arrival. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the whole hotel seems to have gone under a massive renovation. It has an industrial train station feel and it works. My only issue is there is no parking near ... the hotel, even to drop off or pick up is difficult. The hotel is working on alternative arrangements for this as the closest parking is 600m away. Check the rates as Hilton South Wharf would be my first choice over this property due to the parking, exec lounge etc. read hotel review

The hotel has recently been taken over by Hilton and is being fully upgraded, however this will be completed very shortly. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was small, however recently tastefully decorated with modern fittings so you quickly don't notice the size. Location is the big plus with his hotel as its within walking distance or a short tram ride to any of Melbourne's attractions and just across the road from Flinders Street station for anywhere a bit further away. Degraves Street is very close by with its great dining atmosphere. We chose to have breakfast here rather ... than the hotel buffet. Would highly recommend the hotel for a stay of a day or two, particularly if you aren't planning in spending a lot of time in your room. read hotel review

This hotel is in an excellent location, right in the midlle of CBD and Melbourne central station. The rooms face the river and the view is fantastic. The room sizes are very large, renovated and the beds are quite comfortable. read hotel review

Superb location, decent rooms, bit of street noise

  • August 2013
Stayed here for two nights on a city break with my partner. We had (unusually for us) booked this as part of a package trip which included flights. The first thing about this hotel is it's exceptional location; it's about two minutes walk from the main tram/train station and Fed Square and the river. It's right on one of the main streets of Melbourne, with a number of the best shopping and eating lanes running off it; making it a great choice for exploring the city. The only real downside to this is you do get quite a bit of ... street noise at all hours of the day, and even with a room at the back of the hotel you can't really get away from it. That said, it didn't interrupt our sleep too badly. For the price we paid (wrapped up as part of a package) it was a good choice for eating and drinking our way through Melbourne's streets/alleys. read hotel review
