There are a handful of Quests in and around the city but none beat Quest Queen St. for convenience and tranquility.
Ordinarily Queen St. at party time would raise alarms for road noise. Not so for the many units facing Myers Park, a little-appreciated oasis beyond the Aotea Centre.
Checking in late afternoon ? Ask the very capable UK-born Rachelle for a unit facing the setting sun. You're in for a treat as the final glorious rays fill the room and pretty much the only other sound you hear is birdsong.
You might have arrived in a car in which case you will have discovered the no-brainer access off the highway. The Airbus alternates in its drop off points but the closest is about 20 metres from the reception.
If you're new to the area bring Karangahape Road which intersects Queen's top into your radar. Walk up the main street, or plunge down into Myers Park and follow it right up to a flight of ancient steps which connect. This is hamstring material for which any short domestic flight or protracted time in a car is candidate.
Ask reception about the newly minted commercial deal with the Fitness Centre just off the corner of Victoria and Queen where helpful staff there will treat you like a long lost friend. If you have your own padlock for the locker fine, but don't fret as they'll look after your valuables while you workout.
You're armed with a kitchenette which you'll want to use.
Raunchy and definitely not the hospital feel of the Countdown supermarket right at the base of Queen St. is the Lim Chhour Supermarket at 184 K'Rd. which you'll find exiting Myers Park across the road.
A mainstay in this part of Queen St. is the shantytown which lines the other side of Queen pretty much up to the top. While the majority sell tasty and cheap Korean food, you'll spot the populated French gem right in the middle which is perennial.
DIY-crazy New Zealand demands a DIY solution in accommodation which is why a full-blown hotel feels like overkill here. Quest with its kitchenettes, laundry and serviced-apartment style hit the mark.
