We arrived in Wellington after the sun had set, and had no room in place. We were tired and needed to be in the general area the next morning. We tried the Duxton, which looked pretty spectacular from the outside. They had no room and suggested the West Plaza. As it was just down the road we walked by to see if it was palatable. Should have asked to see a room first!
The parking area looked promising. The lobby a little less so. The staff was business like, although no one offered to bring our bags to our rooms. I guess they don't want to see your face when you get there!
After we got off the elevator, we were sadly disappointed. Several of the rooms on our floor had their doorways open, it was like a college dorm. Noisy, smelly and dirty.
If we'd had even an ounce of energy we would have tried to find other accomodations.
They are within walking distance of a pedestrian mall where we had a very good dinner and spent the rest of the evening.
The bed was horrible. The sheets were too. The only thing it had going for it was that there were no bugs.
When we checked out first thing the next morning we saw another couple who had similarly unhappy expressions on their faces.
Don't stay here. There are many other options!
