Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns

Hotel in Cairns

Overlooking the Coral Sea, Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns offers rooms with a private balcony and city, mountain or ocean views. Great location just up the end of the esplanade and only a short walk to the main restaurant strip and attractions. Good little bar downstairs. Lovely pool area. Didn’t get around to eating in the hotel restaurant but Muddys restaurant nearby was great for breakfast. Many other places in walking distance to eat at. Was travelling in a group of 8 and we all had rooms nearby which was convenient. We got a great price at less then a $100 bucks a night for a large spacious room.

DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns

Hotel in Cairns

Centered around a unique rainforest atrium, DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns includes an outdoor swimming pool, fitness center, restaurant and bar. Some rooms enjoy ocean views from the private balcony. 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.
