Review of Distinction Wellington Century City Hotel
Mar 25, 2013
Good place, good location in Wellington
Very clean, very modern 1-bedroom apartment in a good area of town, close to Courtenay Place and all the restaurants there. 90% of Wellington is walkable, and this hotel will leave you close to most of it. Front desk staff was very friendly, and
very helpful. Close to Moore Wilsons (upscale grocery store, like Whole Foods but with more selection), coffee, restaurants, bars. Shower was great, washing/drying machine was in the room (but we had some issues with it running for hours for a wash cycle) and cleaned the clothes.
Paid NZ$30 for 72 hours of internet access - have no idea if this is a reasonable price. There is free wifi available in the Central Business district, but this hotel is 2-3 blocks south of that free wi-fi zone. Parking was NZ$20/day, and we found that based on the size of the city, bus routes, taxis, and the hotel location, renting a car isn't necessary.
The hotel has a deal with one local taxi company for NZ$20 airport runs (metered, it's about NZ$30). Ask for it.
Overall, we'd stay there again.
