Well located - good value

An early in the day occupancy was granted during a very busy weekend starting off a very enjoyable stay in a fine hotel. Location two blocks from famous Auckland Harbor, restaurants, cafes,etc etc. Concierge helpful at every turn. Nice breakfast, if a little crowded and more nice people. All for quite reasonable cost in expensive NZ. Lot to like!

New Year Vacation

Its a generally nice place. Internet is horribly expensive. I found it unacceptable that a hotel that calls itself 5 star would charge exorbitant rates for something like wifi. When I asked about why this was the case staff at front desk were rude. The room service staff were super friendly however and went out of their way to make sure I was happy. Room itself was clean and high quality. Not a bad hotel on the whole. Just be prepared to be disappointed on the charges for internet. You can find better around auckland at the end of the day.

Expensive but nice

Hotel was expensive, but clean and neat and the room was big. Bed comfortable. My only complaint was that the breakfast buffet was $25 per person and it was not worth even $10. I was disappointed in the selection and felt it was way over priced. Free Internet, but you had to leave your room go across the hotel and up a flight of stairs to get the signal. That was annoying. Upon check out they tried to stick us with another charge that they said was some tax, which I refused to pay. They had our money for 4 months, the room was prepaid, they had no business charging a tax at the end. They didn't argue too much and took it off. Pleasant hotel otherwise and it was located nicely. Close to shopping and a short walk to the pier where the tours took place. A short walk to the sky needle too. We had no need to take a cab to get around as the hotel is really centrally located to all the main attractions. Auckland is awesome, I'm going back.

Excellent hotel value

We arrived from Tahiti to check out Auckland for 2 nights. This hotel is very new, modern and comfortable. A king bed and a plush room were set for us. The breakfast buffet is incredible, but very expensive. There's a great diner across the street that's good for a quick breakfast. I was extremely pleased upon our arrival. Highly recommend--as I had researched several city hotels in Auckland and this one really turned out nice.
