The staff at Intercontinental always make you feel welcome and a valued guest. The location of the hotel is really great if attending a central city function or want to be close to shops and cafes.

In short, the title says it all. The hotel is ideally situated within the city boundaries to walk almost everywhere (within the city area) that you could ever hope to explore and see. We had originally factored in a hire-car for the 3 days but ended up being able to walk 2 days and just get the hire car for... More

The Intercontinental is located right in the middle of the CBD and within easy walking distance to everything. The hotel staff was great, the room was spacious and bright, with a great bathroom and view. We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't comment on the food, but the hotel itself was great.

I wonder if the lack of competition in the Wellington upmarket sector causes the IC to fall below brand standards, because I was significantly disappointed with my hotel stay. The hotel seems to be undergoing a renovation and I was given one of the non-refurbished rooms. The room was not only well past its prime, but was actively shabby. There... More
