Stayed at the Hilton Hotel and found it excellent.great food, pool is clean and tidy. Rooms are nice and clean, could do with a mini bar but as long as you buy your goodies from the local supermarket all good.

Dear Ernst I am sorry to hear the issue you have raised on trip advisor. However, you had purchased the Local Territorian Rate which clearly states that local identity would be required for the weekend reservation - which you were not able to supply It is unfortunate that you seem to have missed this key part of the terms of conditions regards Martin Rogers General Manager

I’ve stayed recently in this hotel which is right near another Hilton DoubleTree. Comfortable beds and large room with study. There is a small gym which was sufficient for me. Decent pool to cool off and friendly staff. There is parking near the hotel and you will need tokens whi

Do you have internet connectivity in each guest room? How much does it cost to use it each day?
Thank you for your question Mr_Objectivity We have full wireless (and wired) connectivity in all of our guest room and guest spaces. The first 100MB are complimentary and are then charged at $19.50 per day. However, if you are a HHonors member and book directly with us through our website, there is unrestricted usage. I hope this answers your question and we hope to welcome you to our hotel one day soon. Kind Regards Carey Osborne Hotel Manager

Hello, We have booked into the Crest Private collection twice this year and both times we were told there was a problem with the room and were checked into Seashells down the road which is not located on the Quay. The first booking we accepted without question but the second time we became suspicious. Can you please confirm the reasons for the relocation and how can I prevent this happening in the future if we decided to book with the crest. Belinda
Good Morning Belinda. Your request has come through to DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist you with your query as the property in question is not related to a Hilton Worldwide property. Kind Regards Carey Osborne Hotel Manager

Hi there i booked with expedia to stay with you from the 8th april - 28th april, i was just wondering its my first time to oz is there lots of things to do in and around darwin within walking distance and public transport?? Anything you recommend?? also am i likely to see lots of bugs?? thats the only thing thats held me back for so long!! Thankyou Kirsty Hocking
Hi Kirsty Thank you for choosing to stay with us. There is quite a bit to do while in the Top End and there is a good public bus system in Darwin. Darwin has a proud defence history and there are museums, walking tracks and activities around this. There are also some fantstic day trips (or longer) that you can do at Litchfield, Kakadu and Katherine. All are world famous locations and have amazing gorges, waterholes and wildlife. Crocosoraus Cove is also a good day - you can swim with a crocodile if you would like !! along with the Jumping Crocodile tour. Mindil Beach Markets are also famous and should be re-opening during the time that you are here. An eclectic mix of food from all over the world along with local arts and crafts. The Top End is rich in Indigineous culture and once again there is an abundance of activities around this. Our Concierge team would be happy make bookings for you to make it a hassle free experience. Lastly, there are always a few "bugs" around in a tropical environment. Mostly mosquitos and sand flies and a good dose of aeroguard will keep those at bay for you. The team and I look forward to welcoming you to DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin. Kind Regards Carey Osborne Hotel Manager

"Stay at the other Doubletree next door."
"As long as the A/C is working you'll be happy"
"Rooms overlooking the Esplanade get the beautiful sunsets each night."
"Book a sea view as well worth the little extra"
"It's a huge foyer so can be noisy in the room, ask for a wing room"
