Arrived at the Hilton Auckland at Princes Wharf following the flight from the States. Fortunately the front desk had a room available so we could rest and shower prior to starting our day.
The hotel is centrally located, though if you opt for the wonderful view of the harbor, recognize that if there is more than one cruise ship in port, it appears that the second ship docks next to the hotel and will block your view. In fact, prior to going to sleep for the evening, the management was so kind to indicate that a ship would be arriving at 6:30 AM and that we should leave our blinds closed. We did not appreciate this advice until we woke and clearly one could see into the staterooms of the ship docked next to the hotel!
Several positives...the staff were wonderful and extremely helpful and attentive, the breakfast buffet was excellent, the breakfast buffet room had a lovely view of the harbor (ship did not block this view), and if you are planning to cruise from Auckland, it is a convenient two to three block walk to the cruise terminal. Same could be said if planning on taking a ferry from Auckland.
