My wife and I stayed for four nights in a luxury marina view room while on holiday in the North Island. I also regularly travel for business and was thoroughly impressed with this 'boutique' style hotel with excellent service, rooms and amenities.
The location is great with just a few minutes walk to the restaurants and bars in the Viaduct precinct and only about 10 minutes walk to Queen Street. It may only be an issue in wet weather given there is no cover.
In particular we enjoyed the room layout and level of comfort and space. Concierge staff were always willing, attentive and knowledgable; and the public areas of the hotel were very relaxing and more akin to a luxury spa retreat. We agree we will definitely be back and in my view this is the best overall luxury hotel in Auckland at this time.
Well done to the Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour Team!! Chris & Paula Wall (Canberra, Australia)
