Excellent4.0 / 5
We stayed for 4 nights while visiting Cairns and got a bigger room to have space for the baby cot. The room we got was on the 7th floor with great views of the water and mountains. This however, meant lots of windows and light in the morning. Not a big problem. The room is very dated. The furniture is worn and old and there are quite a few stains on the couches in the room, as well as the carpet. The bedding is adequate, but did not look or feel comfortable. There are also some random pieces of furniture in the room, placed in weird places. The bar is a small area with a water boiler and an espresso machine and sink. The sink was good to wash baby's things. We could sort of control the AC, with a high, med, low setting, but it got very cold even on the low setting, so could not sleep with AC on. They have an option for skipping house keeping to receive a 10 dollar dining credit, which we took advantage of the first day, but could not as they would not take out the garbage otherwise, and we needed diapers to be removed. Housekeeping did not clean too much though and we got some toiletries that were covered in something sticky. One of them had hair stuck to it. The location was ok, close to everything, but you still had to walk a few blocks to get to the restaurants and shops.

Tradewinds Cairns a great starting point.
Great location in the centre of town, near the airport, wonderful service and assistance from staff, especially as we were tourists and were after orientation for sights and attractions.

Wonderful view of the ocean and the pool. Close to harbor and Esplanade. Room was clean but could use a little TLC. The booking agent in the lobby was wonderful.

Stay but don't eat there
This is no where near a 4-star hotel by U.S. standards. The Marriott is 4-star and Rydges Tradewinds is not close to comparison. The staff was nice and knowledgeable. The room okay. The pool area was okay except for the pool itself. The pool needs cleaning as the ground was brown making water appear dirty. WIFI is limited to 300 MB per day per room. Breakfast was the worst. Every place in Australia serves Canadian style bacon so I was surprised to see 'Americanized' straps of bacon. You should always stay away from bacon that does not curl or bend. Their bacon was like petrified plastic and tastes as such. The waffles were hard like potato chips. I get better hah browns from IHOP. Everything on the buffet either came out of the grocery frozen section or was leftover from the previous days. I don't think they actually cook there. Needless to say I didn't try dinner. Local restaurants were better and cheaper. Oh did I mention the breakfast costs $25 per person. Ridiculous. Cleanliness was lacking in the room as a spoon near the coffee maker had some sticky chocolate stuff on it. I called for an extra towel and it took 35 minutes.
