DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin Re-Opens Its Doors After A Multi-Million-Dollar Refurbishment
DARWIN, Australia - DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin has re-opened its doors after a million-dollar refurbishment to upgrade its 197 guest rooms and conference and events facilities.
Each guest room now features a neutral and sophisticated colour palette; cleverly reflecting the tones of the Northern Territory, as well as complementing the hotel’s beautiful Esplanade and Harbour Views. The upgraded rooms comprise a Sweet Dreams® by DoubleTree bed, with the current queen beds being replaced with king-sized beds, as well as new carpet, custom-built furniture pieces, refreshed soft furnishings and an upgrade to the bathroom. The in-room entertainment system has been upgraded with the installation of an internet protocol television system and 43” LED HD televisions.
The hotel's upgraded conference and events spaces complement the guest rooms and provide a versatile canvas to create any style of event, from sophisticated conferences to contemporary weddings and social celebrations. All seven event spaces and facilities including the Grand Ballroom; catering up to 410 guests, offer new energy efficient lighting to enhance the atmosphere of each room and allow guests more versatility in personalising their event.
“DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin is an iconic Darwin hotel, and we are thrilled to be opening its doors again after a multi-million-dollar makeover,” said Martin Rogers, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin. “We are confident guests will be able to see the difference in the quality of our rooms and our state-of-the-art event spaces.”
As part of the new refurbishment, DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin will offer a Sunday family BBQ by the pool beginning mid-May. The new initiative will see the hotel’s expansive swimming pool – the largest in the Darwin CBD – open to Darwin residents every Sunday for lunch and a swim.
“Alongside our guests from across Australia and internationally, we also welcome the people of Darwin to our hotel, whether that be for a conference, special event or for lunch by the pool,” said Rogers.
DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin is located on The Esplanade, in the Darwin CBD, within walking distance of many businesses and government offices, Darwin Entertainment Centre, shopping and dining options and is a 15-minute drive from Darwin Airport.
