We were lucky enough to have a room on level 9 overlooking the Cairns Harbour which was lovely. Ann in the Executive...

Great location on the esplanade and walking distance to the main restaurant strip. Bed was super comfy but the pillows were shocking, we only stayed one night so I didn't bother to request to get different ones. Great view over the water and nice clean and neat rooms. Quick and easy check in.

Rooms with river view are good - well appointed and very relaxing. It has a great lobby and a lovely pool and exercise area, Monro's by the river is a great place for a drink and a snack during the day. Breakfasts are great.

Stayed at this property before and after a reef tour, excellent location - five minute walk from the dock. They will also hold your luggage if there are things you don't want to take on the boat, which is a great perk. The lobby and bar area are very nice. We got a room on a high floor with a...

Loved the Hilton, we did do an upgrade to a King Deluxe package, but our views were awesome. Our room was spacious and the bed comfy. The 6 degrees bar in the foyer had great bar staff and made our evening enjoyable. Our only disappointment was we had to pay for wifi in our room. The pool area is inviting...
