We had a function at the viaduct event centre and decided to stay a night in town. The sofitel is our choice because of the promimity (walking distance) to the event centre and because we could use our Accor membership discount.
A little dissapointed that there was no concierge to help us unload our luggage on arrival but otherwise, the rest of our stay was really pleasant and we enjoyed the "Good old fashion" service, as I would call it . We were pleasantly surprised that we were taken to our rooms by the hotel reception staff and on the way, pointed out the various facilities and complimentary services.
Rooms are very comfortable with all the amenities and being a coffee lover, I enjoyed the expresson machine in the room apart the normal tea and cofffee facilities.
If you are an accor member and looking to stay in Auckland close to the viaduct/harbour and all the action around the area then this hotel is the ideal choice. However, if you are driving then there is only valet parking available at a charge. I am of the opinion that if one is prepared to pay the price for these accomodation, the valet parking should be included in the charge, as with other similar grade hotels we have stayed with.
