Having opened in 2011, the Hilton Hotel is a recent – and welcome – addition to the many accommodation options already available in Surfers Paradise.
Situated on Orchid Avenue, it is certainly centrally located so the beach and local attractions are within easy walking distance.
There are 169 regular hotel rooms and 250 “Residences” – which are basically beautifully done-out apartments with all the features and appliances you will be likely to need. Of course, being a part of the Hilton chain, even the “regular” hotel rooms offer top class facilities and comfort.
The Orchid Tower has 55 levels so there are some truly magnificent views to be had: if a great view is important to you, be sure to specify it when you book.
The Hilton certainly has some impressive facilities to offer it’s guests: there are four pools, the Deck with it’s bar, dining options and valet service, there are two well-equipped Fitness Centres that can be used around the clock, and much more.
Dining can be enjoyed at Salt Grill, which features dishes by chef Luke Mangan, and for drinks there is the stylish bar Fix where you can enjoy some of the finest beers, wines and cocktails.
As is advised with any accommodation in the centre of town, noise from traffic and local nightlife can be an issue, so if you are a light sleeper you may prefer to choose one of the higher floors for your stay.
It’s difficult to find fault with the Hilton, and while it’s not probably going to be an option for anyone visiting on a low budget, it is reasonably priced and provides very good value.
The Hilton Surfers Paradise is located at 6 Orchid Avenue in Surfers Paradise. Tel: (07) 5680 8000
