“Good CBD hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2010

Stayed 3 nights on Club Floor 27. Rooms had been refitted and had flat screen and good carpets. Sadly the bathroom still looked a bit tired, with no separate shower.
Staff were helpful and concierge desk good. Within walking distance of all major attractions.
Club lounge ok; had better and worse! Choice of canapes a bit boring(1 hot dish and the same cold stuff every night).
Would I stay again---absolutely yes

Stayed January 2010, traveled as a couple

Very comfortable, large, plush room, with large en-suite shower/bath, plenty of clean towels, and really comfy bed. Room quiet despite great location in centre of city. Access to cheap laundry facilities within the hotel for guests was really useful. Rooms would be better if they included a fridge. Expensive, but worth it-would stay there again as a treat!

Rooms were available same-day and the convenience of the neighboring carpark was a plus. Super comfortable beds with options of several different types of pillows, spacious room, good selection of TV channels, friendly and approachable staff, and a great location right in downtown.

Stayed one night late January 2010. This is our third visit to this hotel. We like it for it's central location, shops and attractions are mostly within walking distance.

The down sides: had to call bell staff to see to the suitcases from the taxi. They are pleasant enough but there are not enough staff on duty.

The shower floors are tiled and can be very slippy when wet.

Internet access, though free in the club floor lounge, is overpriced elsewhere in the hotel. Also it is available in all rooms but even on the club floor there is a hefty charge for its use.

Upside: Would recommend staying at the club levels, floors 27 and 28. As included in the price are a very decent buffet breakfast, coffee and tea all day in the lounge which overlooks the harbour, and decent pre dinner snacks. Ask for a harbour view room as the city views are not inspiring and are liable to late night noise from the street.

Paid for 1 night and had 2 reward nights.

The difference is that for a reward night you are put in the dirty room.

have to walk for ever to get to your car, they do not tell you that. Park on level 7, go to level 4 to enter hotel then go to your room on level 18+

Only benefit I found was that I was able to open the window!!! but this is in the center of downtown.

NO FREE INTERNET ACCESS IN THE BUSINESS CENTER!

Rooms ok, hotel clean(ish). Don't try room service - I did and the phone rang out three times.
No porter at the door, no offer of help with luggage, check in staff were not going out of their way to be helpful. Expensive for this level of comfort.

Very nice hotel. Great location, within walking distance of everything in downtown Auckland. Very comfortable room, with a great view of the harbour and SkyTower. It is worth the extra to get the Club level rooms that have access to the Club Lounge. Club Lounge offers a nice breakfast in the morning, and a place to relax and read the paper and enjoy the view. It is open throughout the day, and in the evening, they have complimentary cocktails. Will definitely return!
