This Holiday Inn is situated right on the esplanade, which is the nicest stretch of sidewalk in the city. To be quite honest, your stay in Cairns will likely consist of day trips outside of the city as there really isn't much to do in the city during the day. For this sole reason, this makes for a decent base as you can easily walk to the marina, along the shore, or to the myriad of shops in the city.
The hotel seems quite massive and is built as several connected silos with the rooms opening to the fresh air (ala motel), though still within the hotel complex. There are several elevators sprinkled throughout the complex rather than a central elevator bank. The gym also seems quite small and really only meant for you to get a quick cardio session in.
