We stayed at the Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour hotel for three nights. Sofitel hotels are known for their service and this hotel did not disappoint. The hotel is lovely and being situated next to the Viaduct Harbor ensures you fabulous views of the harbor and Sky Tower.
The reception staff was professional and proficient. Upon arrival, our room was not ready so they took control of our luggage while we walked the city. When we returned our luggage had already been delivered to our room.
Our Marina view room was well appointed. The room had floor to ceiling windows with views of yachts, the city and the Sky Tower. There was a small balcony, perfect for picture taking.
The bathroom was spacious, the shower fitted with a ceiling rain showerhead, and a large bathtub.
When I noticed there was no espresso machine in our room (apparently there are not enough for every room), I called reception and they immediately told me to order daily coffee from room service or at their café - all at no charge.
At turndown, the staff delivered complimentary water and chocolates.
All in all, we had a lovely stay at this hotel. The location could not be better. You are near the ferry services, restaurants and bars, yet only a few blocks from Queen Street.
