We were disappointed not to be able to book into the Hilton, which gets such great reviews. However we were travelling with our two teen-age boys, and the Hilton, surprisingly, does not have any sort of space conducive to family stays. The best they could offer was two rooms, with a request for them to be next to each other. This, for a LOT of money with little value. For the price of one room at the Hilton we rented a two bedroom, two bath grand corner apartment at the Quay West, on a high floor. This was perfect! We had travelled for over 24 hours to get to Auckland, and needed a place to relax to begin our vacation, but I also wanted a sense of being in Auckland. Our apartment had 180 degree views of the harbor from the balcony, balcony furniture, full kitchen, full laundry facilities -- and was just a block from the harbor.
On our return lay-over kids & I minus husband stayed one night in a one bedroom high floor suite with harbor views. Again, wonderful and spacious, for a very reasonable price. Full kitchen, bath, laundry, good closets, two TVs, and a balcony that runs the length of the bedroom & living room. Very good space for a couple for a long terms stay. Caveat: pull-out sofa not the most comfortable.
The Quay West has a nice indoor pool with city views, and good desk staff. To note: While the Quay West rents rooms by the night this is also a condo with long-stay rentals and also owners in residence. It is probably better for the more independent traveller, although it does have desk staff 24 hours a day. A high floor is much preferred than a lower one. Also the views of the harbor are wonderful, but there are two office blocks in view, also. Tip: the food court across Albert Street has a cleanliness rating of "A," has won awards, and has great food for little money.
