This Darwin? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin,_California

A search shows only one Honors property within 50 miles.

Or this Darwin? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin...hern_Territory

It's a long way from San Diego, flying or swimming, but it does have Hilton family properties. There is no dedicated thread covering those properties here in FT that I can see but a search on Australian Frequent Flyer will probably help. The best of the three (two Doubletrees and a Hilton) is probably the Hilton but none of them are breathtaking properties.

I stayed at the Doubletree esplanade last month.
Great location but it is a very old hotel.
Access your room and you step back to the seventies.
It is clean and if you get a good price can be ok.
There is another Doubletree adjacent to the DT Esplanade and a Hilton not too far away. From the outside and the lobby they didn't look much better.
Hilton is the only one with a lounge but last month price was double compared to DT Esplanade

All three hotels are owned by the same couple and have been through a number of brands over the years. The Hilton was originally a Sheraton new build and has that format (suites on end) and is OK. The DT Esplanade was originally a Beaufort hotel, its old and needs some love, with the aircon in many rooms struggling. The other DT is probably the better option as it was refurbished prior to the rebrand and has balconies with a good view. During Cyclone Tracey it had two unusual hazards in the pool when it was known as the Travelodge

It was built as a cookie cutter design as well, similar hotels in design can be found @ Tullamarine HI in Melbourne, the Mercure Geelong, Rydges Camperdown in Sydney and the CP Port Moresby
