Hotel genre subverted through rusticated design of historical maritime surrounds - Architects Woods Bagot, in association with NH Architecture, drew heavily on the hotel's location - the banks of the Yarra in the newest bit of Melbourne between the Docklands and Southbank - to inform the interiors.

Located on the Yarra River, adjacent to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, the hotel accommodates 364 rooms over 13 levels. There are 30 deluxe suites over two floors and all rooms have been designed with an emphasis on modern living. In addition, there are two levels of luxury, serviced apartments. 

The 32 apartments have been intricately designed to be the ultimate home away from home. The ground floor level of the hotel is made up of generous lobby areas that flow through to a destination bar and restaurant, all within reach of the southern edge of the Yarra River.

The Hilton Melbourne South Wharf subverts the expectation of cautious design in internationally branded hotels and transcends the usual guest arrival experience. The starting point of the design philosophy is the surrounding area, with the rustication of the historical maritime context deliberately enhanced.
