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.

4-night stay

Comfy beds and friendly staff. Great Breakfast Buffett. Rooms are of reasonable size although the AC does not reach one half of the room. Double rooms do not have a bathtub. Room service happens quite late (around 4pm at times).

Best Value

Staff moved us to a harbor view room at our request. Easy walk to the museum and lots of places to eat. Great Idea to stay here on your last day on North Island before boarding a plane or ferry.

Harbor View

Call ahead for a room with a view of the harbor. Floor to ceiling windows give a spectacular view. My Wife gave it the five stars!

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.
