My wife and I landed in Darwin in the early afternoon after about 23 hours on planes. It was actually quite nice to stretch our legs a little and walk directly from the airport terminal to the Mercure Hotel -- which was less than 10 minutes away by foot.
The hotel has a lovely, open air lobby with an inviting pool beyond. The ordingary rooms are less attractive, but we found our room to be clean and adequate, if basic.
The hotel is not that far from the city and made a good base for our excursions into the city. Uber is now available in Darwin. We took that to the Waterfront and took a cab back. We caught our plane to Timor the next morning at 5:30. There is a shuttle, but why wait if you know you're going to be sitting on a plane?More
