I can't believe in the 21st century I can still find myself in a hotel room that doesn't have wifi. The only in-room option was cabled, which is no use whatever to Mac, iPad etc users. It's well over 5 years since I've had a cable connection port.
And even in the lobby one has to buy access!
I went to a cafe down the street that had excellent coffee and free wifi (which everyone in the hospitality business /should/ have). I'd love to recommend it but the name escapes me. A cross street near the cinema. Old national geographics as design features.
A Mac using colleague at the Amora said he picked up other nearby wifi signals in his room with better rates than the hotel.
The pool won't be in my top 10 pools of the world list. It was useful for a post-work stretch and work-out but not a pleasurable environment.
The ring bus that goes around Auckland from about 5 mins way is very practical. I had to get to Parnell and although it took a while, it was straightforward.More
