We had two visits here separated by one night. Our first night was pretty dismal with the receptionist insisting that we were not entitled to a free breakfast even though our travel documents showed that we were. She said that the statement on our document "Meals provided - Buffet breakfast" did not mean a free breakfast but only that breakfast...

Right on the esplanade with an amazing pool. Nice quiet rooms. Centrally located close to restaurants, and event locations. Nice breakfast buffet at the restaurant with some great local items for lunch and dinner.

This hotel is showing its age - 70s style features, bathrooms with shower curtains and frayed furniture. However the bed was comfortable and amenities fine. Room service was quickly delivered and good quality at a reasonable price. Pool area was inviting. The open atrium does create noise, and the hotel is frequented by a lot of group tours, but it...

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of our Darwin trip and the night before our departure. The first room we were assigned had a poorly functioning toilet. The view was of the roof of the next building and porches. We were then moved to a "better" room which did have a nice view of the...

I stayed at Doubletree Hilton Darwin Esplanade during my short trip. The hotel is well-situated near good restaurants, supermarkets and is within walking distance to the ''city center'', Esplanade park and the water front. The room is neatly furnished but the fixtures such as the TV, table, chairs and showers are rather out-dated. The hotel offers a good pool, good...
