Firstly, we love the Sofitel brand and have had great experiences around the world. The staff are just superb and the quality of the hotels just can’t be beaten. This time, from our arrival late at night (11pm), our dealings with reception, a drink in the bar, breakfast in the restaurant and the goodbye process we can’t complain. We had a superior room overlooking the marina with the fixtures and fittings / amenities well up to the Sofitel standards. The Sofitel beds and bedding are simply the best and it’s the little extras they do which making staying so enjoyable. The only negative about this hotel (and it’s no different to when it was the Westin) is the slightly odd location away from the city and surrounded by apartments and commercial buildings. However, it’s a short walk to the city and having stayed in a standard room in the past (looking at the bus depot) I would always request a marina view room now. Being one of the most modern hotels in Auckland you can’t go wrong.
