I had a lovely room overlooking the harbor and couldn't fault this property. It wasn't hugely expensive and great value for money. If I was being really picky the swimming pool could have been bigger but otherwise a great place to stay. Bathroom was fine and al the public areas of the hotel were sound if not flash.

very outdated and unimpressive for a Hilton Branded stay Staff however were great I generally stay in a hotel because it has nice rooms and facilities though Also internet access should be cheaper or free in the rooms. Free wifi in the lobby is a token effort only

Fantastic, fantastic,FANTASTIC!!! Stayed for 6 days and I could not fault them. The staff were absolutely brilliant, they went above and beyond and when they said they were going to do something they did it straight away.

Was at this hotel early November for 4 nights for a convention. Given the price point of this hotel, I didn't expect very much out of it. It is very tired and in dire need of a renovation for sure. The rooms are decent size, but the shower stall is really really small and the plastic curtain hardly does it... More

Myself and family were very happy with hotel, 1 minute walk to Mitchell St and close to supermarket and other shops. Bus stop close by in Mitchell St plus close to budget and avis to rent a car. Playground just across the road on the Esplanade and no traffic noise.

I visited the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Esplanade Darwin just over a week ago, and was really looking forward to my visit (being a lover of the Hilton chain). There was nothing "Hilton" about this hotel, apart from the fantastic staff. They were so helpful and so friendly and so "5 star" in their attitude that it was a pleasure... More

This was my second stay at the Double Tree Darwin. We stayed five nights in a standard room. As a silver Hilton Honors member we did not receive any of the usual silver status benefits other than staying on the Honors floor. Our room was spacious and clean. As with my first review, the rooms need updating. The bed was... More

I took my wife to Darwin for business primarily and some sight seeing. We booked through Qantas hotels. I was aware of the hotel and its locality. I wanted to stay on esplanade. The staff are very nice, the rooms are dated but roomy. The bed and pillow selection was not particularly comfortable. The pool area is exceptional.
