Hilton Melbourne South Wharf has officially opened its new Woodside function rooms.

The opening follows a five month multi-million dollar renovation of the hotel’s ground floor that now offers 450 square metres of event space.

Hilton Melbourne South Wharf general manager Craig Bonnor said, “Hilton Melbourne South Wharf has always offered guests a unique accommodation and travel experience. With  the  addition  of  our  new  Woodside  space  and  refurbished  boardrooms,  we  are extremely excited to now offer a completely new and bespoke meetings and events experience too.”

The Woodside rooms and terrace offer a seamless indoor and outdoor space that can be configured into four intimate rooms or opened into an expansive space of over 400 square metres. The rooms naturally open out on to a heated undercover terrace providing a unique outdoor setting that can be used as a stunning breakout space or function venue in its own right. A private pre-function area offers views into the semi-open kitchen and zoned break-out areas.

As one space, Woodside ballroom and terrace can host up to 300 guests for a cocktail event, 140 guests for a sit-down dinner and 220 guests for a theatre style event. Individually, the rooms can be setup in boardroom, classroom, theatre or u-shape styles.

Hilton Melbourne South Wharf is  the  only  hotel  on  South  Wharf  Promenade  and  with  direct  internal  access  to  the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
