A beautiful hotel in the center of Wellington. Only a couple of blocks from Cuba St, two blocks from Courtenay Place (restaurant central), and only a short distance from the harbor. The room had a fully stocked kitchenette with a full-sized fridge for our long stay. The parking was convenient and the wifi very reliable.

I stay at the Distinction regularly when working in Wellington. It is close to my office which is a perk but I'd stay here even if not working. It is walking distance to most of the CBD and the rooms are large -- living/dining area separate from the bedroom and it has a dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, good-sized fridge, etc. I... More

This hotel is located in downtown Wellington, just minutes from the waterfront, restaurants shops and museums. The studio apartment we were initially allocated was very hot and had no washing machine, but they kindly upgraded us to a much cooler 1-bed apartment on a lower floor. The apartment was modern, clean and had a very workable kitchen area and a... More

We booked a two bedroom suite for one night as were coming to Wellington for a show at the St James Theatre. Googled hotels in the inner city, close to theatre, and found this one. Had everything we needed - extremely tastefully decorated/secure location/open 24 hours so we could access easily after show/close to restaurants and dairy right at entrance.... More

A well positioned hotel with decent size rooms. But no air conditioning in this day and age is fairly unusual. The hotel is located on a small street with loud roadworks. A notice of this from the hotel would have been professional. Also, the backpacker accommodation next door will keep you entertained with loud conversations well into the night. Far... More

Because my Jetstar flight from Tasmania arrived two hours late, I missed my train. So, reluctantly, Jetstar put me up in this hotel for a night. Since my train did not travel that route again for four more days, I paid to extend my stay at the Distinction. Not only was the room comfortable and clean, it had a kitchen... More

This hotel is central to restaurants and bars in the CBD. The rooms are spacious, modern and very clean, and has a balcony. Checkin was fast and staff friendly and efficient. Only staying one night, pity I wasn't staying longer. There is no room service, but with so many bars and restaurants minutes away, and own cooking facilities, why would... More

Five of us slept in a two bed room with a very comfortable camp bed put up alongside two singles in one of the rooms. Kitchen was well equipped with dishwasher, full integrated oven and full size fridge. Located conveniently for the city's main attractions and waterfront too. Downsides: not real milk for in room coffee; noisy being so close... More

Great location with lots of very nice restaurants within walking distance. Room was well maintained. Only fault....no air conditioning only a fan was provided. My room looked out to car park next door, not great.

Experience at this Hotel was average. The bed was comfortable, service was good but room was filthy. Walls were covered in marks and the bottom half of the bathroom door had something splattered over it, which I was forced to clean off myself. I found a few stray hairs in bathroom which was gross and there was no air conditioning... More
