This was our first hotel having flown LHR > Sydney > Auckland in just under 30 hours. Although tired, we were pleased to see that the room appeared very spacious, with good quality fixtures and fittings and a King sized bed.
It also offered tea and coffee facilities, a fridge / mini bar, aircon, a hairdryer and a good sized bathroom with a bath and shower.
Although on a lower floor we also had a decent view over the rooftops out towards the harbour bridge.
The hotel boasts a number of restaurants, a rooftop pool and of course, the Sky Tower. Our reservation included free tickets to the tower, but even if it costs you, it really is worth it. (Oh, and pay the little extra to go up to the higher viewing platform).
The staff were efficient and friendly.
The hotel is very centrally based - it was easy to walk to the harbour (for ferries - I can recommend Devenport), Victoria Park Market, the Domain and all of the major shopping areas. It is also on the bus routes - pick up the free Auckland tourist brochure available at the airport.
I know that parking is available at the hotel but they charge.
There are a large number of restaurants in the area - there's even a Denny's one block down for any homesick Americans!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here and have nothing but postive recollections of the hotel.
