The double tree Hilton in Cairns is the perfect hotel to stay at. Location is perfect. located on the esplanade all the restaurants, supermarket, surf shops, night market are a stones throw away. a further 5-10 min walking distance is the the pier, mall, and pretty much everything else. Cant find a better location to stay at in Cairns. The hotel itself is very good, great staff and the breakfast buffet looked very good. the rooms were very comfy too. there is a guest laundry where one can self wash their clothes too. For the money paid it was an excellent stay and we were very sad to leave. I would highly recommend anybody to stay here.
