Hotel was adequate - clean, comfortable etc. It feels like you're staying at the casino though as for most things (food, pool etc) you need to pass through or nearby gaming areas to access them. I would prefer to stay in a hotel where pokies aren't the main attraction.
If I had to be honest I would start by saying that this place is way too expensive considering its rather remote location from Darwin Centre. But lets take away the price alone, as this isnt a concern for everyone.
This SkyCity Hotel is a beautiful hotel in Darwin. I stayed in one of the newer Lagoon rooms on the top story (2). If the water was a bit deeper, I couldread more
I really enjoyed my stay here overlooking the fabulous beach and a great spot to enjoy the Mindil Beach markets. It is well worth the extra money to get a sea view as Darwin Harbour is beautiful. The Endota spa did their best to make me beautiful again! It is a short trip into town but be prepared that it's not really walking distance, especially in the heat or at night. Formerly known as the MGM Grand Hotel.
