We were given a room with a limited harbor view but at the same rate as the mountain view. By booking in advance with no refund, we were able to get a great rate. The staff gave us detailed instructions as to where the sights were and how to get there. Also, they were able to recommend restaurants according to the type of food that we were in the mood for.
The hotel provided a shuttle bus to the downtown area. Although, we did walk several times just for the exercise.
The night manager had a house in the Table Lands and gave us a detailed itinerary for our self-guided tour.
If I were to go to Cairns again, I would definitely stay at the Mercure Cairns Harbourside.
