Bottom Line

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Darwin is a modern mid-range chain hotel featuring scenic views of Bicentennial Park and Darwin Harbor. The hotel is ideally located within a five-minute walk from most of Darwin's downtown attractions, though it's situated in a quiet area that feels far removed from the buzz of the city. The 184 guest rooms offer clean and contemporary interiors, modern amenities, and small balconies -- with some water views. The hotel features a decent range of business and leisure facilities, with an outdoor swimming pool, an all-day restaurant, meeting rooms, and a small business center. There is also free on-site parking, but breakfast and in-room Wi-Fi cost extra. As an alternative, the Adina Waterfront Apartments is more contemporary and features well equipped apartments, plus has an equally scenic and central location.

Oyster Hotel Review

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Darwin


A modern chain hotel with a good range of facilities and a quiet setting

DoubleTree by Hilton Darwin is a modern chain hotel featuring a quiet and laid-back ambience, plus a great range of facilities to suit both leisure and business guests. Families in particular should find the hotel to be a great fit. In addition to the facilities, there is also a large park next door with sprawling grass lawns and a playground. The hotel's large outdoor swimming pool is also a big draw for families, and is a great way to cool down from Darwin's relentless hot weather. The pool features a nice tropical setting, with tall palm trees and manicured greenery, plus there are plenty of lounge chairs laid out on which to relax. Other hotel common areas include a spacious lobby and lounge with comfy leather couches, and a restaurant with a large indoor dining hall and a poolside alfresco dining area. The restaurant has a stylish yet understated look, with light colored interiors, hardwood floors, comfy seating, a long hardwood bar, and a window that lets in plenty of natural light and views of the swimming pool and tropical scenery.

Located along Bicentennial Park and the waterfront; a five-minute walk from downtown attractions

The DoubleTree is ideally located in a quiet and scenic area that avoids much of downtown's noise and energy, though it's only a five-minute walk from the city center. The hotel's front entrance overlooks the scenic esplanade, and Darwin Harbor and the back entrance leads straight to Mitchell Street, which is lined with Darwin's most popular dining and nightlife hotspots, shopping centers, and tourist attractions. Popular attractions within a 10- to 15-minute walk from the hotel include: the Crocosaurus Cove reptile park, the Smith Street Mall, and the Darwin Waterfront Precinct, which is lined with upscale restaurants, bars, and boutiques. The Darwin Waterfront Precinct also features a wave pool park, a convention center, a protected swimming area, and sprawling grass lawns. Transfers from the hotel to the Darwin International Airport take around 15 to 30 minutes, depending on traffic.
