We stayed here for a night in August on a grabone deal. Was a great location for a night out without our son and was well laid out. Front desk were very friendly and helpful. Very cute little balcony off the room.

Clean, spacious, comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities in the bathroom. Everything a business traveller needs. Great thing is the location, 2 minutes walk away from shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. There are plenty of attractions such as the national museum Te Papa, the Cuba mall, the cable cart and government grounds within a walking distance.

We stayed here 2 weekends, first in a deluxe room and second in a standard, and had no problems either time. The reception staff are very helpful, the rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. The only problem was the noise from the hallways because they aren't carpeted and every sound echoed. Would definitely stay here again

Went here for a birthday treat, $800 a night and quite disappointed. Great location but the place needs a spruce up, or even maybe a dust and a coat of paint. wouldn't go back there, The Museum Hotel has an amazing penthouse for $100 less.

I have stayed at Distinction in Wellington multiple times and will be booking once again for the Wearable Arts. It is by far the best hotel in Wellington for the price that is paid. The location is great with easy access to restaurants and shops. The rooms are clean, tidy and modern. The kitchen, living area and bedrooms give the... More

Room is nice & spacious with a great bathroom & cooking facilities. Room was a front room so over looking the street, noise from the street was easily heard & early morning rubbish trucks there to wake you!! Good gym facilities, best that I have come across at a hotel during my travels. Well equipped.

Location is great, although be prepared that if its raining there is a dash along Tory Street that is not undercover. Ask for a room at the front, as the back rooms look straight into a concrete wall of the car park building. Don't expect the reception staff to be pleasant and friendly - they are not. We changed room... More
