We stayed at the recently re branded Double Tree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin for 4 nights on our tour in October 23, we had previously stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn next door.
We had a great stay, the hotels interior was very modern, clean as was our large room on the 5 floor.
All the amenities you come to expects these days, the king bed was so comfortable as were the pillows which is a must for us being lite sleepers, we slept well.
Nice view over the Esplanade from our window topped it off.
Breakfast was included in our package which had more than sufficient for us, lots to choose from.
Pool was large and refreshing after breakfast and the bar area was nice to relax in and have a cool drink in the afternoon/evening especially at Happy Hour.
All staff we encountered were friendly and efficient and the housekeeping did a great job cleaning our room daily.
The walk to the CBD is an easy 10minutes either by going through the back of the hotel or walking along the Esplanade.
Thanks to all for a wonderful stay.

I received a welcome cookie which was a lovely touch and also a welcome text to ensure I was enjoying my stay. Staff very friendly and great service. Rooms were tended to every morning. Very tropical vibe and I felt like I was in a resort. The only thing is the bathrooms need an upgrade.

Having stayed at various Hilton's as a hilton honor's member I am not too impressed. Just a old hotel requiring some upgrade. Staff are nice and courteous. But facilities are poor. Breakfast is very average. Pool has no pool towels or lifeguards . Gym is locked . Room has no utensils or cutlery, drinkable water and only basic toiletries . Much better and newer accommodations options nearby to choose from IMHO .

Room tip: Try another hotel

I attended a large conference convened at Double Tree and the staff handled the crowd quite well. The place was kept clean and orderly spite hundreds of people and crush for coffee breaks and meals.

We paid over $400 a night to stay here and whilst hotels in Darwin are expensive in general this was on the higher end so our expectations matched and unfortunately this hotel doesn't warrant the spend.

Pros:
- Nice pool area with plenty of deck chairs and 4 x covered areas
- Rooms are spacious and very clean
- Comfortable beds
- Service was really good, staff are friendly and couldn't fault them.
- Great location.

OK
- Breakfast was ok. Exactly what you'd expect at a mid range hotel that's half the price of this one.

Cons
- Aside from the foyer and pool area, the hotel is outdated and in need of a reno. Our room was straight out of the 80's.
- HORRIBLE water pressure. The shower rose was one of those ultra water saving ones you find at camp grounds which they obviously chose because the water pressure is just that bad. Completely inexcusable for a hotel that's meant to be 4 stars.

I'd give this hotel a higher rating if the room rate matched the experience so by all means if you see a good deal on a room here, it's worth taking but don't waste your money paying their regular rate. They should be discounting until they renovate. Until then there are better options.

Room tip: The under cover cabana areas (only 4 of them) are popular. You need to grab one early
