Great location, bit pricey!

Located very near shopping district. A bit pricey of a hotel, everything inside was for sell, even though the room already set you back $200 a night. Nice staff and overall very nice, clean hotel.

awesome location but..

this hotel was really great considering it had resteraunt, bar, and shops INSIDE the hotel leading down to a mini shopping mall. it always was really awesome location, right next to sky tower, very close to harbour, practically everything was walkable. the only thing was, it had ridiculously expensive fees, like 30 dollars for internet in the room, and only 10 channels on the tv, and to rent from there "movie selection" it was 15$. who pays that for a movie? other then that it was good.

Good bang for the buck

Super location, next to Sky Tower and a few blocks from Viaduct Harbor. A welcome retreat after a hectic day of running around Auckland.

Crowne Plaza Hotel Auckland

This Hotel was in a perfect spot. I think about all the other locations we could have stayed and I kept telling myself this is the perfect spot. Beautiful views of the city. Only 4 blocks or so from the Harbor. Maybe 4 or 5 blocks from the University. On top of and only 1 block of Restaurants and shops. Only 1 block from the sky tower. 1 block from all transportation types. 1 block from Theatres. One block from Tour companies. Staff would always go out of their way to accomadate you. Location was very nice. Rooms are of marginal size. We had problems with the Air Conditioning unit, but not that big of a problem. Cleaning service was great and always said hello as you walked by. Pretty Painless experience. I highly recommend it for travellers looking for a base location and doing tours on the side or just visiting Auckland itself.
