“Comfortable last night in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2006

Check in was easy...staff were helpful and friendly, and the room was clean and comfortable. I had a nice bath and just relaxed my last night in Auckland. (Had been driving all evening back from Rotorua.) Got a drink voucher, but didn't use it....got in a bit late. I was able to put my bottle of wine in the refridgerator....and there was coffee and tea for the morning, but I went out for breakfast. Parking was NZ$15 I think...or something close. I also didn't have time to check out the gym like I thought I would. They gave me a late check out with no problem. Also, my phone wouldn't dial direct local calls, and the pay phone in the lobby didn't work either. (No phone card....used the hotel operator to help me make final arrangements for help back to the airport.) I would stay there again.

Stayed here for a night on two separate stays during my time in NZ.

The staff are friendly and helpful, and check-in was swift. There are some great glass elevators! The rooms are clean and spacious, and the bathroom was of a very good size with all the toiletries you would expect present. The room included a sofa and coffee table, would suggest asking for a non-joining room as the noise occasionally filters through, but not really noticeable. Beds are comfortable and they offer a choice of several pillow types should you want to change.

The location is excellent and a big plus to this hotel, just a couple of blocks from the harbour and also Queen St and Sky City.

A tip is to join the Priority Club (free hotel reward scheme) prior to checking in as they provide a free drinks voucher at check-in to those who are members.

Used the club floor on 28th floor, this provided complimentary breakfast, free drinks 24 hours a day and free alcohol in the early evenings. Rooms were large. Free internet use on the club floor (only 1 though) or internet in your rooms if you have a laptop for about 68c per minute. Positioned in Albert St about 15 mins walk to the harbour and its shops and great restaurants but also right in the middle of the city for shopping. Also had guest laundry.

We stayed here Feb 06 I liked the hotel, I spent most of the time on my own while my husband was working and I found the concierge to be very helpful and I didn't feel intimidated on my own. The hotel was very clean and had everything I needed, good shower, tea & coffee, bath robes, laundry, iron etc. The gym was small but ok. Breakfast good in hotel but lots of other places good outside also like the Strand Arcade for a BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado & tomato).
Good location above a shopping centre and close to all touristy things like sky tower and ferry terminal and just a short taxi ride to Mission Bay.
On the whole I loved Aukland and the people are so friendly - I would love to go again and I would stay at the Crown Plaza again.

On the whole, pretty good. Great location which makes getting around the city centre really easy. Biggish rooms for a city hotel and all very clean. Fab showers, though bathrooms on the small side. Stayed here at the same time as the cricket team etc, but didn't notice anyone being particularly loud or rude, just a livelier atmosphere.

Staff very helpful especially concierge.

Drinks prices at the bar for beers and cocktails pretty reasonable too.

Stayed here on a two day stopover. The hotel is in a great central location and is one of the better looking hotels you come across in Auckland. Our twin room was clean and an excellent size for the price. Easy access to everything you're likely to want to see in Auckland and with plenty of choice for local coffee shops should you not opt for the hotel breakfast.

Unfortunately our trip was tarnished somewhat by a huge group of Oztag (that's a sport if you didn't know!) playing tourists. They basically took over the hotel and especially the bar and eating areas on the lobby floor and were on occasion extremely loud. This is clearly not the hotels fault but we also noticed the West Indies cricket team were staying at the same time. The hotel therefore (rightly) appears to be a first choice for touring sports teams and you may wish to ask if any are already booked in when considering this hotel.

Otherwise an excellent choice.
