The hotel room especially the bed was very comfortable. Perhaps some brochures on local tours such as to Kakadu National Park should be on display at reception. I had to ask the staff about potential day trips and when I couldn't see any brochures was a bit concerned I couldn't book one via hotel reception staff.

The room was clean and servicable, bathrooms dated but clean and complimentary products good. BIG problem was a long delay from 2pm to 5pm waiting to check in and still had to wait for the sheets on my bed to be sorted. Not a good look, the staff did their best but it really spoiled the expirience

Overall I found Doubletree Hilton Esplanade to be quite good. The wedding function I attended there was extremely good and I loved the food too. The service at the wedding was very good. The bathroom and the TV in my room let down the stay.

My room was clean, but very old. Only having a shower curtain meant that the bathroom floor flooded easily. Expensive for what you get. The pool area was lovely and the staff are friendly. The breakfast was OK, nothing special. The conference facilities were adequate.

Room service was terrible, taking nearly an hour to arrive and the quality of the food was poor. I mentioned this upon checking out. There are lots of places to eat near by a lot cheaper and of better... More

There are two Double Tree Hiltons on the Esplanade in Darwin, 116 & 120. This review is on 116. This hotel is lovely. The rooms are very clean, quite and comfortable with actual chairs to sit and watch TV, or a desk and chair to work at. The rooms are dated and do not have a hair dryer or any... More
