I stayed at the Museum Hotel whilst on a conference in Wellington. I had a deluxe stiduio room which was spacious, with a comfy bed, desk, ottoman, kitchen facilities and bathroom. The view was not great (of the offices and carpark across the road) but it was quiet. The hotel has a seaparate wing for 'residential' rooms and this was where my room was located. A good place to stay, just across the road from Te Papa but a fair walk to the main shops of downtown Wellington. Two complaints that I would have: the shower is one of those ones that is just an extension of the bathroom floor with a separate door. This shower was quite awkwardly placed beside the bath, and if you weren't quick with getting in there and getting the door closed, the bathroom floor was awash and quite dangerous. The spa bath looked great, but there was no plug and I waited 2 days for one to appear after phoning reception twice. Room service food was fine and a good standard of housekeeping, although the staff were noisy in the corridors and on the one morning I had the opportunity to sleep a little later, I was woken by the staff talking loudly to one another outside my room. Reception staff are excellent - very professional, polite and helpful. Two of my colleagues had problems with overcharges on their room bill but mine was fine. I would stay here again depending on the rate I could get. It was cheaper than normal with the group conference rate at $255 dollars - I certainly wouldn't pay any more that that.
