Trinity Hotel is very conveniently located but it's definitely a mid-range hotel, so I wouldn't expect anything too fancy. If you're wanting to stay really close to the Wellington Convention Centre, the West Plaza Hotel is just across the road. Other hotels located near the Trinity Hotel are the Abel Tasman and Central Stratford Apartment Hotel, if you're wanting to do a bit of a comparison. These are all mid-range hotels.

Who do you wish to buy souvenirs for? If it is for yourself or someone special look in the gift shop at Te Papa for quality items not made in China. If you are there in a weekend there is a good craft market in Frank Kitts Park.

Sheepskin rugs, hand creams made of lanolin, NZ honey, jewellery made from Paua shell or greenstone (NZ jade) are all typical souvenirs. Of course there are also the jokey T-shirts with sheep or kiwi on them!! There are several good shops at Wellington Airport and others in Lambton Quay.
