DoubleTree by Hilton global head John Greenleaf said, “Guests at DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns can look forward to experiencing the brand’s signature service in the tropical surrounds of Far North Queensland. The opening of this hotel further cements our commitment to the Australian market. We know that the little things mean everything when it comes to a rewarding travel experience and strive to bring each guest the special comforts and acts of kindness that are unique to the brand – starting with a warm chocolate chip cookie welcome at check-in and continuing throughout every aspect of a guest’s stay.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns is located at 121 The Esplanade, approximately six kilometres from Cairns International Airport and half a kilometre from Cairns’ CBD centre.
The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, Citron in-room amenities, 24-hour fitness and business centres, a dedicated tour desk and meeting and event spaces that can facilitate meetings for up to 160 guests’ theatre-style. A unique feature of the hotel is a rainforest garden with a barramundi pond.
