We stayed in a club room on the 26th floor. Check in was smooth and efficient and the room was very clean. It was a quiet time of year just prior to Christmas but the hotel was quite busy.

The club itself is quite small but does have superb views. It seemed they were unexpectedly busy as the attendant had to get some additional help. The food was very good with offerings such as oysters and prawns as well as a good array of other hot and cold items. Such a nice change from the small tasting plate now offered in many other establishments. There was also a good variety of wines and spirits. Service was friendly and efficient.

We found the bed comfortable and the room was quiet and spacious.

For breakfast we decided to eat at the restaurant downstairs. There was a good variety of food and service was friendly and prompt.

We would definitely stay again for the location and service.

I'm glad you took the option to upgrade to our club rooms which has some stunning views and the Club Lounge is absolutely worth it.

Thank you for your good comments regarding our breakfast offering and our prompt service.
Guest service is our number one priority so it is always a delight to read that we have got it right. I will make sure all the team see your kind words - it is a real motivator.

We stayed during New Year's eve. I was impressed with the service, clean room and location. All the staff were friendly and courteous. All the rooms were squeaky clean, including the hallway. The beds are big enough for a queen size (we got a double room). The hotel is located in the centre of the city. Downstairs you have the mall and the food court. The casino and sky city tower are beside it. If you want good fast food, go to Elliot's stable at Elliot Street. It was a fantastic stay.

Room Tip: For a room with a sea view, choose the side facing sky city but near Wellesley St. The other side has the view of Albert park and Queen St. If you need parking, it will cost you around $24 a day.

Stayed here in the last few days and found the service and amenities excellent.
The staff were friendly and welcoming and the room on the 28th floor was beautiful.
The drinks and canapes on the 28th floor between 5.30pm - 7pm boast a beautiful view and are a wonderful, relaxing way to start the evening. It is definately worth the extra bucks to get a Club Room.
As other reviewer's have also noted the service is really stand out and specail thanks to the reservations manager Shiju Oommen, made the process so easy and professional.
I am going back to stay again at the end of the month, before travelling back to Europe.
Good value for money. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Top two floors, facing the city. We were in room 2812, which was great.

We upgraded to a harbour side King Bed Deluxe room at the 28th floor of this Central Auckland hotel to settle in after a long journey from Europe to N.Z.
The rooms are spacious, airy and clean. The view is simply stunning (what do you expect at this height...).
The staff is friendly and dealt with all our questions and special wishes in a highly professional and discreet manner. There is a gym at the 12th floor which is very well equipped and even features a sauna. Don't miss the Club Lounge (if you are a Crowne Plaza Club guest) which features canapés, evening drinks and an exclusive more private continental breakfast at the 28th floor.
We were so pleased with the stay that we booked another room for next week straight away.
Special thanks to Shiju Oommen for outstanding service.
