We visited the Crowne Plaza in the centre of Auckland on a Titan tour, and this was for the first few nights in New Zealand. Although the hotel is up a steep hill from the main street leading to the harbour, there is access from a food court (below) by lift. Sky City and the Sky Tower are 5 minutes walk away.
Being travel weary from a 30 hour trip from home in Uk we were pleased at first impresions of the hotel room with 2 huge beds, a large bathroom, and all the bits and pieces to make a traveller comfortable. There is a 'pillow menu' in each room where you can have pillow fillings of your choice for a small deposit. We were quite happy with the thick hollofill pillows provided. Air conditioning functioned well.
Reception was a fairly tranquil space with a lounge area and direct access to the restaurant in which we only had one breakfast. The breakfast standard was quite good and cooked items were included in our $23 NZ (£8.50 at the time of our visit - cooked normally $5 (£2) extra).
The hotel is over 4 floors consisting of shops and a food court accessible by lift or escalator from hotel reception level. In the food court on level 1 is Hollywood Bakery providing good snacks and breakfast at very reasonable prices.
Overall we found the hotel to be a well used place of business standard, although some of our fellow travellers' rooms were said to be a bit shabby.
