Just spent one night here this month as my friend had been comped the room. I have stayed n this hotel before from time-to-time and it is quite comfortable and the location is probably my favourite area of Auckland's central city. Stay here if you are seeking somewhere that has some 24-hour activities (casino, places to eat, convenience stores etc).
None of the rooms in this hotel have balconies so if you are a smoker I strongly recommend requesting a room that opens onto the shared courtyard - this allows you to open the door and step outside to smoke. Otherwise, you will have quite an inconvenient stay. Also, the rooms at ground level facing the courtyard are the only ones that have any doors/windows that open to the outside.
Good points include: spacious rooms, high quality furnishings, excellent quality television set for a hotel.
Bad points: bathroom was below par (worn toilet seat, dirty shower glass, below average shampoos/soaps/etc), lots of annoying bright lights in the room (alarm clock needs to be placed face down, power points have a bright blue light that shines through the room whenever you plug things in), only two lifts servicing the hotel so annoying waits times.
I would stay here again and recommend it but I would only do so if I was getting a value deal for the room. Definitely couldn't justify paying rack rates.
