A nice 4-star hotel
Overall a nice hotel. Perfect location near the board walk and very nice and helpful staff. The room could need som TLC and unfortunately the hotel restaurant was really bad with a limited/weird menu and no table service - you have to order at the desk as you do on McDonalds.

Breakfast is nice, also love that there is a water fill station for access to cold water 24-7. Location to all the day cruises is perfect.

Great location
Great viewS of the harbour, close to pier and brewery, DFS and a few blocks to the mall or Esplanade. Normal TV channels, no Sat or internet tv. Shower/spa was nice. Pool was huge with a bar and sauna. Liked the central atrium area with plants, saw a hummingbird. Balcony very nice. Only complaint was that door closure mechanisms did not work, so much slamming of doors. Also, the elevator key card did not work well. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Would return.

The staff were authentically friendly and attentive. Our room was clean and well kept. The amenities were very good and smelled nice. The buffet was well worth the money. The variety of food they offered was more than expected and was delicious. My only comment for improvement was there was no recycling in our room. I left plastics on the counter with the hope that they would get recycled. I would and will stay here again.

The Hilton Cairns was convenient to the pier where all the excursions depart for the Great Barrier Reef. Many restaurants on the board walk and was close to public transportation for buses to the beaches. The hotel was clean, room was spacious with balcony.

The parakeets that roosted on the hotel grounds were fantastic, the open and green spaces in the general areas were great.
