For those lucky enough to be in Wellington for work or pleasure, I can't imagine a better place to stay than the Museum Hotel which is across the street from the Te Papa Museum and a few minutes walk to almost all of the major sites within the city center. For a few more dollars - the Apartment units are great for longer stays as they offer in-room kitchenettes and washer/dryer! All of the soaps, liquids and incredible coffee for the in room espresso machine or french press are complimentary. The bathroom is well appointed with a huge tub and walk-in shower, lots of mirrors and nice amenities. If the bathroom lighting was a bit brighter - it would not be a bad thing. The rooms are quiet with great sun-blocking shades!
The service staff are exemplary and should be cloned and sent to work at all of the other hotels I've stayed in NZ. Simply wonderful - always helpful!
Although their restaurant - The Hippopotamus - is quite good with a great selection of wines at the bar, there are so many food options a few feet away that I don't believe it gets the traffic it deserves. Oh, and take a few minutes to check out the art that is displayed throughout the public areas of the hotel - it is the perfect vibe for this great hotel.
