although a little expensive, we were booked as part of a tour group so had nothing to do with the selection. reception staff were always helpful. A long walk from elevator to our room so make sure you ask for something close.
Obviously the original Hilton in Darwin, this hotel seems huge, with a massive foyer and fairly large rooms which have evidently been refurbished at some point. No real complaints on any other score, except that the aircon in the room was hopeless. I had to sleep naked on top of the bed covers just to get some rest. My partner made the mistake of getting under the covers and woke up in a river of sweat! Unless you *really* like warm sleeping conditions, try another hotel! (I cannot comment on the' other' DoubleTree hotel next door as we did not stay there, but it was rather confusing for taxi drivers!) Comments from those who stayed at the (much newer) Hilton Darwin were positive, especially in relation to the shops and CBD.
We stayed in the Hilton Doubletree twice - one before and one after a tour to Kakadu and Katherine Gorge - the rooms are a little dated but comfortable, breakfast was nice, pool was popular making it hard to find somewhere to sit - central location for Darwin city
I was more than happy with this hotel after our Ghan trip. The hotel is in a great location as the name suggests right on the esplanade. the room was a good size with good facilities and the bed comfortable. Staff were great nothing was too much trouble. the hotel is in a great location walking distance to most Darwin attractions. Would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again
The location is superb and that is where the superlatives end. Quite why Hilton with the Double Tree brand have opted for sheer blandness is beyond me. There is absolutely no homely, inviting feature to the communal areas whatsoever. Whoever signed off the internal design should be shot. It drove us out each night just to get some atmosphere. It's as if Hilton have done this on purpose not to tread on the toes of the Conrad Hilton brand. To add insult to injury the room had a damp musty smell. Come on Hilton you can do better than this!
Very helpful reception staff and offered a freshly baked cookie on checking in. Plenty of lifts available and wide open spaces. My room very comfortable and clean although a bit tired in bathroom. A shower curtain rather than shower door not a great look. Very good buffet breakfast and opened early for my early start.
Not the best Hilton property in town but overall a pleasant stay helped by the attentive staff. An older style hotel so nothing really special about the rooms or overall look & feel. Well positioned & handy to a lot of places within walking distance. Probably would stay there again which is always a good sign.
Checked in here for a few days for a conference on-site. First up it is a terrific location right on the Esplanade and backs onto Mitchell Street with cafes, restaurants, and bars in abundance. Nice lobby area and as with all doubletrees you get a cookie on check-in which is nice. We had some complications at check-in with the wrong room number being written down. It took a little while to sort out what had gone wrong. Not that impressed after a long trip but mistakes happen. The room was okay though dated. Especially the bathroom- very tired and with a shower cubical and an old shower curtain. Not at the standard of other Doubletrees we have stayed at.
Great room , fantastic breakfast and lovely pool We spent 4 nights at ned of our trip just relaxing by the pool . It was great . Pool was beautiful . The room wonderful and the breakfast really good . Couldn't fault the hotel and the staff tried as hard as they could to help . Some staff are undertrained however with shortage of labour everywhere this is understandable.
We are return customers for this Hilton and feel at home when we get here The rooms are decent and upgrades don't cost much. Room service and housekeeping is first class and front desk people go out if their way to help you I had a computer wireless problem and the guys on front desk spent at least half an hour and got it fixed. Brilliant A lovely CLEAN swimming pool with plenty of deck chairs A very good hotel that looks after its clients
