Great For A Short Stay

Second time staying here. Not disappointed,had room on 14th floor overlooking Featherstone Street, with 2queen beds, even though I was travelling alone. Staff very helpful, and effecient, especially when assisitng with the storage of luggage. Location great for walking to most tourist attractions, harbour front etc.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Catch the airport shuttle bus from the train station. Run frequently and are quick and much cheaper than a taxi fare.

overpriced

For a $400/nt hotel I was surprised at the very small room, no turndown service, only instant coffee in the room, and a very old tube TV.

Innercity Wellington hotel-nice surprise

This is an extraordinary Holiday Inn. We were first pleased by the location as it is just one block from the train station where the ferry shuttle drops off. It is also very convenient to Wellington's terrific wharf area for eating and enjoying the waterfront as well as the cable car, botanic garden, shopping, and museums. Our room had a view of the harbor with a very comfortable bed, handy kitchen area, and luxury bathroom.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk to the cable car (by McDonald's on Lambton Quay) and take it to the Wellington Botanic Gardens. This ia a vast, gorgeous park over a 100 years old and full of twists, turns, and hills with hydrangeas, roses, and venerable trees.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

(You might not like this) I would not go through ORBITZ to book any Hotel again because we were given the cost in NZ$ and we were debited in US$. It would be helpful to other users to show the small print with this imformation in a more prominent way.

Two days in Wellington

This is a good standard Holiday Inn close to the Wellington Harbour front. We were travelling by train down from Auckland and this hotel is only short walk from the station and the shuttle to the ferry across to South Island. There are plenty of restaurants and shops close to the hotel. The hotel is modern, clean and very conveniently located. The only slight annoyance is that that this hotel is like most hotels in New Zealand that are still in the age of charging for internet access.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Several good places to eat on the waterfront a short walk from the hotel. It's also a short walk to the cable car up to the botanical gardens which gives a great view of the city and harbor. The walk back down through the gardens is very pleasant (a couple of hours or so round trip)
