Well, here I am "stuck" (and loving it!) in Darwin for 3 months due to Covid and the loss of my dry season work. I fortunately decided to stay at The Palms City Resort and am so happy I did! The Palms has truly become home to me. The magnificent and friendly staff go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. They always have a hello and smile at the ready. The tropical gardens surrounding the bungalows, pool and bbq are beautiful and make you forget you're right in the city and within easy walking distance to absolutely everything you need; supermarkets (if you want stay in and bbq yourself), restaurants, pubs, shops, the waterfront, the outdoor cinema, parks, and public transportation, etc. The rooms and bungalows are spotlessly clean, tidy, and nicely decorated with some larger than others, so check what you need when you book. There's also a large laundry with irons on site. Whether you're coming from overseas, from across Australia, or are a NT local in need of a relaxing getaway, The Palms is sure to tick all the boxes! Highly recommend!
