DARWIN, Australia - Hilton Darwin has just completed its $5 million major renovation project which began in December 2013. The renovation encompasses a complete redesign of the Executive rooms and revitalisation of the guest room bathrooms and entrance ways, as well as the introduction of a state-of-the-art Fitness Centre.

Overlooking picturesque Darwin Harbour, Hilton Darwin offers 236 modern guest rooms, five flexible meeting rooms and a high-end seafood restaurant, Mitchell's Bar & Grill. Ideally located in the heart of the CBD, this stylish hotel is within walking distance of all major corporations and government offices, Darwin Convention Centre, and close to great shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities, as well as Darwin International Airport - just a 15 minute drive from the hotel.

Martin Kendall, Area General Manager, Northern Territory, said, "2014 is an exciting year for us as we welcome a further investment in the hotel. Our Executive rooms and Suites have played host to Presidents and Politicians and have also been the choice for visitors and locals alike looking for something special. This refurbishment will be a fantastic boost to our existing offering and considerably enhance the guest experience and add another level of sophistication to the Darwin market."

Minister for Tourism Matt Conlan said the $5 million investment by the Hilton Darwin was a great vote of confidence in the Territory's tourism industry.

"The Territory Government is committed to growing our tourism industry and the Hilton brand is highly regarded around the world as a quality product," Conlan said.

"The $5 million refurbishment project by the Hilton Darwin is a great boost for our economy and will enhance the range of accommodation choices available in the Territory to visitors and business travellers alike."

Hilton Darwin's renovation embodies contemporary design concepts of Circa2000 which is characterised by energy efficient, environmentally sympathetic, and contemporary styling. The Executive rooms have been completely revamped with a whole new look and feel, introducing contemporary décor, lush urnishings and accents. The remaining guest rooms have undergone a complete bathroom and entrance way refurbishment, offering an elegant aesthetic with walk-in showers, intelligent lighting and quality finishes.
