The Hilton brand is moving back into Melbourne in a big way with two of its flagship properties set to open in the city in the next three years.

The US hotel chain has been without a presence in Melbourne since the 396-room Hilton Melbourne South Wharf was rebranded as the Pan Pacific Melbourne in 2017.

Late this year, Hilton will make its debut in the Melbourne CBD thanks to a new hotel being developed by Singapore tycoon Michael Kum's M&L Hospitality.

The 244-room Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street is a redevelopment of historic legal chambers that M&L Hospitality purchased in 2017. M&L Hospitality is adding six storeys to the existing building and is adding a second tower of 16 storeys on the 1162-square-metre site.

The Australian Financial Review recently revealed that a 600-room Hilton hotel would open in Melbourne in 2022 as part of Malaysian developer OSK's A$2.8 billion Melbourne Square project. 

Currently, there is a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel opposite Melbourne’s Flinders Street Station, also owned by M&L Hospitality.
