Review:   I debated between the Doubletree and the Hilton (what can I say, I’m a brand girl), and after talking with one of the people who switched hotels to the Hilton in the Executive lounge I’m super glad I went with the Hilton. Sitting in the Executive Lounge for the nightly reception with a glass of wine, watching the sunset over the mountains and the bats flying right along the baloney is a memory I’m going to cherish! The location was perfect. A short walk to the reef terminal, a short walk to anything in the city center, amazing waterfront views. I was upgraded to a spa room with a harbor view – which was amazing after a long day of swimming on the reef. The beds were comfortable, easy to sleep in! The bathrooms were huge. The room overall was a bit dated, but still a very nice place to stay in. Breakfast was great – either downstairs or in the lounge if you have access. I tried both – the lounge was more cold food and hard boiled eggs, while downstairs had hot buffet foods. They have a desk dedicated to booking excursions and the lady working it knows her stuff! She talked to me about my interests and steered me away from one of the more tourists trips to a small group trip that fit my interest in hiking and exploring much better. Plus she helped me book with a reef diving trip that had things like prescription snorkel glass rental! It was that level of service that really made the trip.

Review:   Overall good experience. Buffet breakfast is not the best and importantly coffee and tea are not included... Good location, close to shops and the nearby lagoon as well as the esplanade. Rooms are spacious with sun drenched balconies and inviting beds. Would recommend although bit over priced.

Review:   I had a business breakfast at the Hilton and it was superb. The food was well presented and delicious. The venue itself was neat, tidy and professional.

Review:   We stayed at the Hilton Cairns for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our first room had some issues but when we went to the front desk they immediately fixed the situation and put us up in another room with some added extras. The staff were all so friendly and quick to offer a smile and a hello. The rooms are a little worn but nothing to make it uncomfortable or unwelcoming. The pool area was excellent with a beautiful refreshing pool and relaxing spa, the lush landscaped gardens around almost make you forget you're in the city. I loved the design of the hotel, the tall lush gardens in the middle of the building is a beautiful touch. We were there in the wet season when humidity is extremely high, the A/C could barely keep up and the rooms had a slight damp scent that I suspect is because of the season, however that being said tile instead of carpet in the rooms and an upgraded air system would make a good difference on that front. Overall very impressed and would stay here again in a heartbeat when back in Cairns.
