This hotel’s staff is exceptional. Cannot recommend enough the value in gaining access to the executive lounge. There is a separate exquisite breakfast service every morning, it is not crowded at all with excellent coffee and a beautiful spread of food. Every evening for a

Stayed here for a few nights on a recent trip to Cairns. The location couldn’t be better as its right next to the harbour, perfect for our Great Barrier Reef trip, and only a short walk into the city centre. We stayed in a room on the top floor which had fantastic esplanade

My husband and I were only looking for a place to lay our heads between diving and other excursions. We got so much more! We found ourselves in a corner room on the top floor. The executive lounge was a nice extra. Naoki, Sarah and Anna were so helpful! They were genuinely

The location and facilities were great as expected, but the service made this a genuine 5-star stay. Having already received an upgrade on check-in, a trivial maintenance issue then saw us further upgraded to a waterfront spa room. Nothing was too much effort for any of the

Hi, I'm an Aussie, been to Cairns a few times. Some need to know, January is HOT and Humid so be aware. Hat, hydrate and sunscreen. If you go out to the Reef, which you probs will, take seasickness tablets if you get motion sickness. Called Kwells or Travel Calm. Get from a Chemist. $2 per tablet on the boat. Wear a Stinger suit if you're snorkling, stops sunburn besides the Stingers. There's many tour companies that go on the Reef. I sent my sister with Tursa. She loved it. Smaller boat than the others = less people. Go for a tour on the Daintree to see some Crocs. Go up to Kiranda via train or gondola or drive. The Hilton is very central in Cairns.

Yes, wifi is complimentary for hh members. Their is a limit though, I believe it's 1gb per day and you can connect up to 3 devices. Get a data sim with Optus , will work much better if limit or charge is a concern.

"End rooms have viewing point outside door."
"Ask for a room overlooking the water (although the early morning birds can be loud)"
"Consider purchasing access to the lounge is you don't otherwise qualify. You'll save on food and drink."
"Views vary depending on position and floor; if the view is important to you, mention it at check-in."
"Pick a room on the executive floor. Ask for a room on the end of the building to watch the parrots and the flying foxes."
