This is my second time at Distinction Wellington, once for a work trip and once for leisure. The front staff and very welcoming and the rooms are perfect for a couple of nights stay. It is within walking distance to Courtney Place, Cuba Street, Te Papa and Mount Victoria without busy main road noise at night. The room comes with...

Surprisingly air conditioning in many Wellington Hotels/Apartment doesn't seem to exist, so the only bad part is street noise if you want fresh air by leaving the window/sliding door open. No issue with room to room noise. Reasonably well equipped self contained apartment to make a hot brekky in the morning or basic dinner at night. Pretty good location to...

The Distinction was one of the few places that provided two separate bedrooms in an apartment style living that we could find. The location is great for night clubs, bars and restaurants (as is all Wellington). We walkeda round the city from here on a number of days and it was easy. Staff were friendly and helpful (24 hr desk)....

We stayed at Distinction Hotel in central Wellington. My room was a lot larger than I anticipated and was very comfortable. I was also on the inside so no views but no hassle. Only downside was the lifts took a bit of time to reach you, but overall great time had, made easier by great accommodation

Nice clean, modern room with seperate bedroom. Friendly and accommodation staff and only a short walk from everything!! Was a little disappointed that there was no tv in the bedroom and there was only one seat in the lounge area. Otherwise it was a great hotel and we will be back.

Spent 3 nights here on business. The room was dark with no view due to being hard up against the building next door. The one bedroom appt was comfortable, the bed a bit softer than I like but for 3 night's was ok. Shower over bath which had nice pressure and good hot water. The kitchen only had a frying...

We arrived just before check in time and went straight to reception. We gave our details and it became clearly obvious, listening to reception staff, that not only was our room not ready, although we had booked a few weeks in advance, we had not even had a room allocated. We were asked to wait and a couple of minutes...

There wasn't anything particularly awful about my stay, just that it wasn't quite what I expected for the price and the way they position themselves as a higher-end offering. Pros: Location is pretty good to access Te Papa, Cuba Street and Courtenay Place Size of the room was fantastic, and having all the amenities in room was great. Blackout curtains...
