Hotel is fine- comfortable beds, shower area is a rather small . Staff at reception are great- the idea of writing their name on a card to welcome guests is a good one Hilton. The Esplanade at the hotel front , has loiterers. We walked there in the evening abt 8pm and in the morning about 830am. Loiterers. This gave...

reception staff were exceptionally welcoming and friendly, and the room was clean if very basic. Unfortunately this hotel is trading on the HIlton name (and charging as such) but the rooms are dated, old TV with only a half dozen working channels (there should be about 20), and a movie channel and shower that didn't work properly. Terrible with kids

I decided to stay at the DoubleTree the esplanade as my girlfriends and I were doing day tours of Darwin so our time spent in the hotel was minimal and we were spending a lot of money on tours & travel so wanted to save on the accommodation. I was hesitant to stay at Doubletree because some reviews suggested there...

We spent several days in Darwin before we left on a coach tour. Everything about Double Tree was first class. Not only was it a beautiful hotel but the staff were brilliant. We stayed at several hotels along the way but Double Tree was a standout.

This is a great value hotel for those visiting Darwin. Right on The Esplanade, allowing for beautiful views of the harbour, and within walking distance of Mitchell Street and the centre of Darwin.

Excellent service, rooms starting to get a bit dated but still excellent, have seen and not heard renovations occurring, so expect this to be fixed. Food is great, dinner could have more options but has all of the essentials. Pool and Bar are great, very enjoyable. Love the $40 deal on drinks and food.
