Epicureans rejoice in the heaps of gastronomic delights available at this hotel. Chef Luke Mangan's Glass Brasserie is the premier attraction. Creations like Yellowfin tuna with brioche crust, octopus, green olive tapenade, fennel, radish, orange and pecans satisfy the most discerning palates.

Mixologists concoct inventive cocktails at the rooftop terrace Zeta Bar, while the business crowd congregates at the historic Marble Bar for Zatoichi martinis (wasabi, cucumber, vodka, ginger and lemon) and bar food. The Glass Bar serves more than 440 boutique wines, oysters and tapas. For something more casual, Caffe Cino offers lattes, beer and lunch.

Great Location and Services

The Hilton for a first time visitor to the city is an ideal hotel. It's in the central business district and two blocks to Hyde Park on one side, two blocks to the aquarium/wax museum/IMAX, and then a foot bridge from those sites across Darling Harbour to Hard Rock, shopping, museums. Also directly across the street is the Sky Tower (with observation deck) and huge, high end mall. Tons of shopping on all sides of hotel … the Queen Victoria Building (housing another high end mall) directly behind Hilton and next to the City Hall. Chinatown and the China Gardens are a five minute walk. The only thing is the Opera House is a good walk. I'm a Nyer so it's no big deal, but the elderly, disabled, or slow moving people may want to consider a cab. The streets are not grid like NYC and wind a bit… so it can bi confusing and it's a good walk up and down hills (some steep). Room is nice size. A bit cramped but still nice. Clean. Bathroom is small, but has everything in it you would expect. No issues to speak of. Really nice gym downstairs for guests. If you arrive early before check-in after a long flight… ask to use the shower facilities in the gym until your room is ready. Gym is shared with the public as it has it's own entrance from street so it can be crowded after work hours during the week.

Comfort and Convenience

This hotel was a big surprise. Not your average Hilton. Not that Hiltons are average, but this was a most sophisticated hotel with five star service. Its location could not have been better, unless you have to have a close up view of the Opera House- for that stay at the Four Seasons, but you will fork out a lot more dough that you could have spent at the marvelous shopping in walking distance of the Hilton. Directly across the street is the QVB, Queen Victoria Building, a site worth visiting even if you don't have the dollars to spend at Versace. The room's amenities were very pleasing and very European in style. All in all,I would stay there again. Nice job, Hilton. [...]

Dining tip: In Hotel

I did not have the time to eat at the Brasserie, the hotel's highly acclaimed restaurant on site, but it looked like it a place that would have high on my list if I had. The one thing I would have liked is a few more options for late night dining. After 11PM your only choice in the hotel is room service limited to gourmet-ish pizza. Yes, 11PM is late for dinner but when you are vacation and your evening is packed with entertainment sometimes that is the only chance you get.
