We had stayed at several B&Bs during our honeymoon and we weren't sure what to expect from a hotel chain, but the service provided by the staff was genuine, friendly, and personable. I can't commend them enough!! We utilized the Concierge's (Nathan) services and he was most helpful in making our arrangements and offering recommendations for the area. The rooms are spacious, contemporary, and comfortable. Ours was facing the courtyard and offered a scenic glimpse of the nearby mountains. Not a lakeview, but beautiful just the same!..Parking/valet was a low rate and only a small fraction compared to other large cities in the U.S. that are located in the downtown areas (San Fran, Chicago, D.C., etc). Besides, there was meter parking throughout the surrounding area so it was nice to just walk around and only get the car for when we did our road trips. There is a coin operated laundry on the 5th floor and I believe the hotel also provides laundry services for a nominal fee. We didn't eat at the restaurant during our stay but they had music at night and a cool vibe. Everything is within walking distance which is a plus if you want to enjoy the nightlife.
While in Queenstown, some things we highly enjoyed and we recommend: the Luge (a must!!); grab an enormous burger at Fergberger; enjoy NZ delicious culinary specialties for dinner at the casual Fishbone Bar & Grill; had a delicious breakfast at Captain's; great authenticty for Japanese fare at Hikari Izakaya; for horseback riding --High Country Horses in Glenorchy which you can drive or they will pick you up in Queenstown and was a great experience!; and we participated in a pub crawl which allowed us to venture to multiple bars, meet people and was a blast! We loved Queenstown and staying at the Crown Plaza really enhanced our visit! :)
