The point I would highlight is the friendliness of the staff in the hotel from the reception to the bar. That makes a big difference in the whole experience. The rooms are comfortable and up to the normal Hilton standard. Would also highlight the location, which is ideal for

The hotel has an excellent location within walking distance of waterfront restaurants and boats to the Great Barrier Reef. The service was exemplary, especially in the Executive Lounge, where very helpful and cheerful staff were a real treat and a rarity these days.

Staying at The Hilton should have been a very positive & enjoyable experience. The reception staff were very detached & appeared to be more interested in pushing their agenda of being right, as opposed to listening carefully to & ensuring the needs of the client are met. We

Hi, I'm an Aussie, been to Cairns a few times. Some need to know, January is HOT and Humid so be aware. Hat, hydrate and sunscreen. If you go out to the Reef, which you probs will, take seasickness tablets if you get motion sickness. Called Kwells or Travel Calm. Get from a Chemist. $2 per tablet on the boat. Wear a Stinger suit if you're snorkling, stops sunburn besides the Stingers. There's many tour companies that go on the Reef. I sent my sister with Tursa. She loved it. Smaller boat than the others = less people. Go for a tour on the Daintree to see some Crocs. Go up to Kiranda via train or gondola or drive. The Hilton is very central in Cairns.

Is wifi complimentary for Hilton honors members? If not, what is the daily charge?
Yes, wifi is complimentary for hh members. Their is a limit though, I believe it's 1gb per day and you can connect up to 3 devices. Get a data sim with Optus , will work much better if limit or charge is a concern.

"End rooms have viewing point outside door."
"Ask for a room overlooking the water (although the early morning birds can be loud)"
