After reading all the reviews I was hesitant to book this hotel but hotels in Darwin are so expensive. I managed to book 21 days in advance through Holiday Inn own website and got a Deluxe room for only $117 p/night.
Luckily most of the hotels revamp has already been finished. We got 2 double beds in our room facing the harbor. 2nd floor which is the guest laundry area is still being worked on currently so there are workmen during the weekdays. Complete renovations of the hotel are due to be completed by end May 2010.
Restaurant / Bar / Pool area was excellent with great service.
I have been told that prices go up to about $360 during the dry (peak) season which starts in June.
Happy that I went with my intuition.
