“Nice hotel in good location”
Reviewed 10 January 2008

We stayed in a duplex executive suite on the 28th floor and it was enormous, with a lounge, guest toilet and wet bar on the first floor and stairs leading up to the bedroom, dressing room and and an enormous bathroom with a double size bath and large walk-in shower. it looked newly renovated and had a large plasma screen TV in both the lounge and bedroom. The only downside was the shabby leather sofa and chair that needed replacing.

The club lounge was good with food available at all times and a good buffet breakfast, all free of charge. There was also free internet access which was very handy.

The location is very good and near to the sky tower and main shopping areas, and only a 10 - 15 minute walk to the harbour. I would recommend this hotel and at the price we paid it was a bargain.

We also had very good meals in Orbit restaurant in the Sky tower, with great views thrown in, and at the French Cafe.

Location: Great location, next to a shopping center and downtown location. close to harbour area and downtown and all other attractions.

Room: New modern room with flat screen tv and modern deco.

Staff: Great and helpful.

Overall: A great place and value for money. Located next to a shopping complex. Great view of the city if on one of the highest floor. Was a bit sceptical due to earlier reviews, but turned out to be a very good experience. Will certainly recommend this place to friends and family. Would stay here again.

The location of this hotel is perfect. Close to the harbour, galleria and Sky Tower.

The room was above avarage size and was not in perfect shape, but ok. Could use a renovation in the next 3-5 years. I stayed at the 15'th floor and had a nice view over northern part of Auckland.

I tried the small breakfast buffet one morning. It was fresh but still
to pricey.

This hotel is a good place to put your head for the night. It's clean, cheap and cheerful. Those of you complaining about this place being lifeless should remember how reasonably priced it is!

It's a bargain w/ a great location

We stayed as part of a group tour and were pleasantly surprised as Crowne Plaza's can be quite generic like many other brands. We knew it was a good location and the refurbishment adds to the experience. The staff were evry good all round even with large groups in the bar. The breakfast was very good with excellent pastries. Would recommend it for both business or leisure.

Stayed here for three nights, along with about a bajillion attendees of the Microsoft Tech-Ed conference...

Room decor was a bit 80s (okay, mostly the bedspreads) but the bathroom was very modern. My plan gave me unfettered access to the breakfast buffet, which was fine except for the herculean effort required to get a coffee refill.

In-room internet was up to $30 NZD :: per day :: but you can buy scratch-off cards in the lobby with more reasonable access to the hotel WiFi -- $5/hour if I recall.

The hotel gym was small but tricked out with the necessary gear. A nice feature on the bikes, step machines and treadmills were the built-in fans that blew cold air on your face while you worked out!

The best feature of this hotel is by far the location. The Sky Tower is a block away and you can walk to the waterfront in less than ten minutes -- and get the best shopping en route!

  • Liked — The location.
  • Disliked — Overpriced Internet access!
