“Hilton Auckland is Strategically Located on Princes Wharf”
Reviewed 5 October 2010

The address is misleading - the Hilton is at the very end of the wharf. Although you pay extra for view rooms, it is worth it! Being about 500 meters from the street, it is quite quiet. Many restaurants are nearby, and a 10 minute walk gets you to Queen street for some serious shopping and eating! I have stayed at many Hilton's worldwide (Sydney just prior to Auckland), and this is an above average facility, but not quite up to Hilton Sydney. I would not have wanted to have stayed at any other hotel in Auckland. The staff even let me use the internet without charge! They are very friendly & helpful here.

The good things about this hotel: the restaurant, White, has very good food and knowledgeable serving staff who recommended the perfect wine for our meal; the rooms on 2nd floor are very spacious (rooms higher up are smaller because of the shape of the building); the location right by the Viaduct; and the views across the harbour.
The not-so-good: day staff in the lounge and bar were conspicuous by their absence (after 20 minutes had to go to the restaurant to get coffee); no executive lounge; rooms in need of renovation; poor gym facilities.

I recently stayed at the Hilton for 2 nights and overall it is a good choice business hotel in Auckland. Service was very impressive for a Hilton property. I wasn't expecting a stand out service from a Hilton property and I was very impressed.

Some of my business colleagues in Auckland was saying that Hilton is considered as one of the top hotels in Auckland and once you stay there, you understand the reasons behind it.

Location is great, with some great views of the harbour and CBD from the room. It's a handy location to get around both city and suburbs.

Rooms are of decent size, more on the standards of a business hotel with good decor and amenities. Bathroom is very spacious with seperate bath and shower room. After 2 nights stay, I felt the rooms are starting to show their age.

Breakfast spread was perfect, good selection of food. I dined at their White restaurant twice and highly recommend both the cuisine and the service there.

Overall a good choice of hotel in Auckland both for business and leisure travellers.

We arrived early from our redeye flight and were given a room immediately. It was a little too small for our family of 3 so we requested a larger room. We were moved to a room on the 2nd floor that was MUCH larger than the 4th floor (due to the pyramid shape of the hotel) as soon as one became available. Everything was 1st rate. The included breakfast was the best food we found in Auckland! Continental (not your typical US breakfast) plus ala carte menu items - all delicious, and included in the room price. Of course, the location is fantastic - right on the water and next to the ferry pier. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
The only negative is the high internet cost.

Great location and views. We checked in late and were upgraded. Room was fantastic, only failing the light to the bathroom which is half way up the hall.
Great selection at breakfast.
The housekeeping staff pressing the button for the lift when they see you coming down the hall is a nice touch.
