One of the best Hiltons there is. Staff is outstanding, property is perfect. Rooms are large and well appointed. Breakfeast is a buffet with many options. Location is right on the Harbour. Beautiful views of the harbour and islands.

We booked at the Hilton because that is where the Cruise Ship docks when in Auckland. Only a few steps from the hotel you can drop off your bags to the cruise line.

I highly recommend this hotel. It is clean, comfortable, and the service is fantastic.

My husband and I had an early flight out of Auckland to Australia and chose the Hilton for our last night in New Zealand. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. The staff was very helpful. They had a cruise coming in early in the morning and so weren't able to put us in a room with a view. To offset that, they gave us free internet, which was great. The room had an exquisite, spa-type bathroom, one of the nicest I've seen, with granite counters and an extra-long tub. There were plenty of drawers and a large closet. The bed up to the usual extremely comfortable Hilton standards. We had a little bit of time to explore Auckland - this hotel was an excellent home base, right in the lively docks area.

The Hilton in Auckland is one of the best Hiltons I have stayed at. The location, the rooms, bathrooms, pool and restaurants are all very good. The views from most rooms is amazing, when it is not raining!
Do not be afraid to ask for another room, If they give you a bum view to start with.

No executive floor for Hilton Honors and only a cold breakfast, unlike every other Hilton.

We stayed just one night at the Hilton (after several very happy days at The Langham) but chose to stay at the Hilton on our last night because of the location. Located on the Quay at Auckland with restaurants, bars and shops all within an easy stroll it is ideally located. We paid extra for a room with a balcony and harbour view and it was worth every cent. The bathroom was clean with good quality shampoo and conditioner (a trivial matter but a nice touch and very welcome after days of using cheap hotel shampoo elsewhere). We didn't have time to use many facilities but when we awoke to a breath-taking sunny morning after days of rain and decided to have breakfast on our balcony, the staff were very helpful and happy to bring us breakfast even though we hadn't ordered it the night before. One negative was the high price for internet use and so this may be an issue for business travellers (other hotels of a similar quality in NZ offered free or very cheap internet and office facilities). Overall, excellent.

Stayed here for two nights in the deluxe harbour view room on the 7th floor. Check in was effortless with staff friendly, helpful and courteous.Rooms were nice and cosy with modern furniture and decor, large enough and bed was very comfortable. They give you a choice of pillows but we found the ones on hand excellent. The hotel even provides a small teddy bear which was a nice touch. Good flat screen TV with a range of channels to keep you entertained. The bathroom was nice with a walk in shower and a bathtub as well.

Buffet Breakfast was excellent with a good spread of foods (hot and cold). Staff were excellent, attentive and always friendly apart from the Head Concierge (for being rude, abrupt and very condescending) who was the only blemish in an otherwise flawless performance from the staff all round.

I would gladly recommend the Hilton Auckland.

Stayed at the Hilton Hotel Auckland for 5 nights, and loved it!! Was very central, as advertised on the website, on the Quay of Auckland next to the Marina. The views over the harbour were just breath taking.
Nicely decorated hotel, and the rooms were spacious, comfortable bed, was my best nights sleep I’d had on my travels to Australasia.
Loved breakfast, room service was great, sitting on the Balcony looking at the views seemed surreal.
I chose this as I’d previously had good experiences of staying in several Hitlons before.
Loved the pool area!! Hopefully will come back one day.
