This hotel is the quintessential Wellington experience. It is perfectly located for a late night stumble home from the bars, weekend brunch, museum visit or quick getaway to the airport.
As a regular business traveler, the Museum hotel caters to my every need. The work desk is spacious without being intrusive in the rooms, there are accessible power points by the desk and the bed. No free wifi (really in this day and age...) but the Wellington CBD Free wifi is accessible from some rooms and works well.
The rooms are very well appointed, with large double baths and separate showers in many. Most rooms have an espresso machine and king size beds with a pillow menu. Little touches like a large supply of cotton buds (instead of a 3pack) and the quality of the mini-kitchen/laundry fit out make you wonder why every hotel doesn't look like this.
The food at the restaurant is is fantastic, if a bit overpriced. There are many many cheaper options 2-5min walk away but few that will give you a genuinely better meal. Unless I feel like staying in, I usually sample one of the many near by places.
The Art in the lobby is quite amazing, a bit of a spectacle perhaps but worth seeing.
I've stayed here on a regular basis for the past couple of years and it's become my go-to hotel in Wellington, without a doubt the best experience.
