My husband and I stayed at this hotel because of location to the Aotea Centre, and we had stayed there about five years ago when it was the Duxton, which was nice back then. We couldn't believe how outdated it has become, and the stand alone air con unit is that noisy that you can't hear youself talk. There was a draft coming under the front door that was so bad, when we put a towel across the gap, it lifted off the ground! We took down the blanket from the cupboard to put on the bed and it was full of holes! After we came back from being at a show, we phoned for room service (24 hour menu), at 10:30 pm and the phone was off the hook, so when I finally got through to somebody in reception, they said that 'the chef has gone home as he'd had a busy night, and there wasn't any food in the kitchen! The night staff offered to cook us wedges (found some in the freezer) with cheese for free, which was nice of them I suppose, but it still didn't make up for the fact that the hotel advertises a 24 hour in room menu service, but there was no food or chef in site? They also charge $20 to park yourself in the basement of the hotel, with no valet service at all. We also filled in the comments card and handed it back to reception when we checked out, and I requested that I would like someone to phone me about our stay, and to date nobody has contacted me. The pillows were also very hard and lumpy, which caused us both to have a very restless sleep. To top it off, my sister and her husband were staying at the Stamford Plaza on the same night, and they paid less for a five star hotel, with amazing service, valet parking and breakfast included. Very embarassing if this hotel is going to be putting up international visitors during the Rugby World Cup.
