I could easily have stayed in the spacious 2-room King Deluxe suite the whole time, but I came to visit the Great Barrier Reef. The taxi driver told us on the way to the hotel that the Pullman had the best matresses in Cairns, and I believe him. The spacious, modern bathroom included a huge spa bath (probably big enough for 3) and by opening the louvered wall you could expose the spa to the main room of the suite and to the view of the outside. There was a small private balcony with a table and chairs. From the pillow menu to the minibar the Pullman is top drawer all the way. The only downside is that the excellent television merely highlighted the lack of any interesting programming on Australian TV! The first floor casino was a little rich ($20 minimum table bids) but very swank. They also had an interesting array of entertainment in the main bar.
I didn't eat in the hotel, preferring to go to the beachside eateries convienently located across the street, except for one very good room service meal the first night. Great, great, great!
