Traveled up to Cairns for a weekend in November. Was greeted by staff on arrival and informed about the upgrade as a HHonors Diamond, yet the staff member seemed totally frazzled when I asked about a king bed instead of a twin. He kept pushing the fact about the water view until he finally relented.
Room, one of the spa deluxe was up on level 8 and had a nice view into the hinterland. I echo other comments by guests here the spa has a glass wall looking to the view, and the bedroom. Found it a tad unusual. Room was aged, yet clean. Did find it noisy on Saturday night with the functions downstairs.
Executive lounge breakfast offering were pretty weak, yet the freshly squeezed orange juice was appreciated, as was the warm service by the Executive floor Manager, Ann. I sampled with my colleague both the Shangri-la and the Hilton evening canapes service during the weekend. While the Shangri-la was quite busy the staff were a lot more proactive in offering refills for drinks and cleaning the table then at the Hilton and I felt the canapes variety was stronger at the Shangri-la.
