Very friendly and helpful staff. Special mention goes to Todd who went out of his way to enhance our stay. The rooms are very clean. Relaxed environment. Breakfast was standard hotel breakfast with a variety of hot and cold, sweet or savoury choices, and included a fruit juicer to make your own fresh juices. The pool is long enough to do laps. I will return.

The manager went out if her way to help us,when we inquired as to why we had to pay for parking,she upgraded our room as to make up for the costings for parking. Breakfast was excellent, the hotel was very clean .the bed was super comfortable, which was well needed after travelling for 7 days .we would definitely stay here again .thankyou for amazing service .10/10

Everything was excellent: room, breakfast, assistance from reception , restaurant and room staff, pool ....... What more can I say? I will certainly stay at the Double Tree by Hilton again and recommend it to friends. The hotel's position on the Esplanade and close to the shops and restaurants was a great bonus.

This is a tired old Double Tree, which has a little maintenance construction noise. That would have been three stars at best but the clincher (in 2024) they wanted to charge a guest $9.95 for 24 hours internet access. Charges for internet access immediately drop a hotel two stars. But this one seems so unapologetic about it. I would have thought the Hilton flag would have crushed this idiocy, but whatever. Not only won't I recommend this but I have probably stayed at my last Hilton ever.

So many things going for this hotel. Fab staff, rooms clean and modern and really nice. Pool is massive and well maintained. Nice pool bar area. Brekkie was fabulous, but lunch and dinner not so great at all.management really need to sort this. Big let down. The outside of the building desperately needs attention. It’s grubby and really not the Hilton brand at all.

Great experience staying at the Double Tree in Darwin. Staff , right down to the room cleaners were so helpful and obliging. The Hotel was in the final stages of undergoing room upgrades with minimal noise to guests. The Hotel is clean and tidy, and meals are of good quality. Special thanks to Shania and Isabella at reception for their help. We intend to return soon.

I found this hotel to be very comfortable, I stopped in a group tour for 2 nights. The room was clean, but the shower leaked and it probably did need a bit of TLC to improve it. Reception had obviously been recently refurbished and was spotless. However, on 4th floor (above me) major building work was going on. Drilling began at 9am and several of our tour had problems with accessing rooms along a corridor with cases. It’s such a shame as the hotel is well positioned, has a decent pool and amenities. Not much more to say other than I’d probably stop here again as overall (for me) it was pretty good.

We stayed at the recently re branded Double Tree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin for 4 nights on our tour in October 23, we had previously stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn next door. We had a great stay, the hotels interior was very modern, clean as was our large room on the 5 floor. All the amenities you come to expects these days, the king bed was so comfortable as were the pillows which is a must for us being lite sleepers, we slept well. Nice view over the Esplanade from our window topped it off. Breakfast was included in our package which had more than sufficient for us, lots to choose from. Pool was large and refreshing after breakfast and the bar area was nice to relax in and have a cool drink in the afternoon/evening especially at Happy Hour. All staff we encountered were friendly and efficient and the housekeeping did a great job cleaning our room daily. The walk to the CBD is an easy 10minutes either by going through the back of the hotel or walking along the Esplanade. Thanks to all for a wonderful stay.

I received a welcome cookie which was a lovely touch and also a welcome text to ensure I was enjoying my stay. Staff very friendly and great service. Rooms were tended to every morning. Very tropical vibe and I felt like I was in a resort. The only thing is the bathrooms need an upgrade.

Having stayed at various Hilton's as a hilton honor's member I am not too impressed. Just a old hotel requiring some upgrade. Staff are nice and courteous. But facilities are poor. Breakfast is very average. Pool has no pool towels or lifeguards . Gym is locked . Room has no utensils or cutlery, drinkable water and only basic toiletries . Much better and newer accommodations options nearby to choose from IMHO .
