“Best bed ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013

We had a wonderfully relaxing time in the Rendezvous. Really great location (able to walk to the city or casino in a couple of minutes) and the bed was so wonderfully comfortable we wanted to get one for home! The room service sticky date pudding was a great treat as well...

Stayed January 2013, travelled as a couple

When we arrived at this hotel, what a nice surprise. Very modern, new and very close to the activities in the area. the rooms are a nice size and clean, All the rooms are around an open area from top to bottom.

They have a very nice restaurant for the buffet breakfast, and regular service in the evening, as well as a separate sushi restaurant, locally across the lobby. The bar is centrally located in the lobby between the two restaurants.

There is on sight parking and also valet service. A gift shop is located in the lobby.

Location is very good, There is an open area across the street where different activities are held. The main street to walk to the waterfront is 2 blocks from the hotel. The walk to the waterfront and water activities would take approximately 20 to 30 minutes depending on your activity along the way. Close to many banks, a grocery store, and retail shops.

The space needle where bungy jumping is conducted is two blocks away. You can see it from the lobby.

The hotel staff is very good, prompt and helpful.

Recommend it highly.

We stayed for a1night deal, the room was very good, very clean & cool (it was a hot week end) with a good TV. I booked there because it had a pool. The pool was not flash or upgraded but clean. The hallways were so hot, like a sauna, after a cooling swim I was hot by the time I was back at our room. Pleasant staff & really good 2 for 1 buffet breakfast. Parking extra at a reduced rate next door. A pleasant place to stay.

Very nice hotel, especially since the upgrade. Great staff always ready to go the extra. Full breakfasts are a bit steep at NZ$31, but nicely turned out. Could use a few more hot items such as eggs benedict which comparable hotels provide in their buffet breakfasts. They do provide eggs benedict, but as an ala carte at NZ$18. No spa provided, but the gym, pool and sauna were very nice.

Room Tip: Try for the top floors facing the square

Stayed in this hotel for two nights.
It is approximately 45 minutes from Auckland airport and is about 10 mins walk from the city center. Very close to the Sky tower and the main shopping/restaurant street - Queen street.
Rooms are a very good size with TV, alarm clock, mini bar, safe as well as other appliances and a great sized bathroom with both shower and separate bath.
Hotel is maintained to a high standard of cleanliness and staff are very friendly and able to help with quires. Usually a taxi parked outside if needed.

The breakfasts are a little expensive but the choice and variety of what is available is wonderful (continental, full English cooked breakfast, pancakes, fruit, cereal etc).
Small swimming pool, gym and sun deck available - though only small number of sun beds.

For those staying on the 12th, 11th or 10th floors, you'll also have access to a glass lift at the very front of the hotel that gives wonderful views of the sky tower.

Overall a great hotel for staying in Auckland and would recommend.

This hotel is just off the main drag, Queen Street. A twenty minute walk to the harbor and fifteen to Sky Tower. Ten minutes to K Road. It's very like the American Embasy Suites in architecture and pricing. Clean, well run and a tad staid. This hotel may seen better days but it is not run down. Nothing really jumps out about this place except the location and cleanliness. The breakfast is a a little different. Either full breakfast $30 USD or a continental breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.
