Have just taken our free night here thanks to Accor Advantage Plus and would still rate this as one of Auckland's best hotels. Staff are exceptionally attentive, friendly and courteous, rooms comfortable and well appointed (especially the bathroom), location superb and restaurant excellent. The only reason for the 'but..' in the title is a noise issue. On a previous visit we had a room at the city end of the building and commented on the peace and quiet however this time we were at the Westhaven/Harbour Bridge end - directly above a huge bus depot and yes at 0555 the buses are starting up and heading out the gate right below our window. This would be ok if you were wanting an early call, but certainly not great if you are hoping for a sleep in!
Overall I still rate this hotel very highly, but would definitely request a room towards the city end of the building.
