Doubetree is a good hotel if you like Luxury but not over the top. There is a casual feel and the staff are amazing. Great tips on where to go and what to do. A lovely swimming pool attached to the property and good breakfast Buffet! (we got a special deal as well!)

Fantastic location for this hotel on the Esplanade in Cairns. You're outside the CBD area but still only a short walk away from everything especially the restaurants, eateries and bars on the Esplanade. The room was quite large and well appointed with a great bed, very, very comfortable and a great night's sleep was inevitable. The bathroom was very good...

Rooms were lovely, and the hotel is in a great location and has lots going for it. However the total lack of any information on the hotel facilities and Cairns in the room was disappointing, as was the attitude of some of the staff, particularly in the restaurant at breakfast! The food was average too!

Visited DoubleTree last September to celebrate my birthday and it was the first stop to our Australia adventure. Really enjoyed the Cookie upon arrival, very nice touch indeed.

I decided to stay at the Doubletree because I didn't feel like paying for the Hilton in Cairns and I had previously stayed at a Doubletree in the US and found it perfectly good in quality and service.

Nice clean hotel. Pool was great with plenty of areas with sun or shade. Lobby restaurant/bar had friendly service. Views from the room & balcony were great. Right around sunset you can see the "flying foxes" (big bats!) starting to fly around and there are hundreds! Very cool. Also be sure not to miss the Barramundi feeding in lobby ponds....

Stayed for a single night on the way back from a barrier reef excursion. Reasonable rooms and a good location.
