Only stayed one night at the Crown Plaza - selected based on positive reviews and was not disappointed.
Hotel was fairly full so was happy to have a free upgrade from an exec room to a duplex suite on the 28th floor.
Room was pretty stunning - entrance level had spacious lounge and lots of cubby holes to park cases - best was a glorious balcony with views across Auckland. Upstairs large bedroom, dressing room and huge bathroom with spa bath, shower and the usual robes etc.
Had cocktails in the exec lounge looking over sky tower and bay - very friendly staff and more than happy for you to sample the very good NZ wine on offer. Few canapes - but what was there was very good. Did not eat in hotel - took ferry to Devonport for the evening - good excursion to avoid hustle and bussle of city.
Breakfast again good in lounge - though we were offered the chance to have a full breakfast in the main dining room for just a few extra dollars - plenty in lounge so no need. Also free internet access a bonus (although only one terminal which did tend to get hogged by lonely businessmen!).
All in all - highly recomended as great place to stay - well worth upgrading to exec floor.
