I recently stayed for 2 nights at Grand Mercure while in Wellington for work on 5th floor. Positives were it was well-facilitated with kettle/toaster/microwave, central location, and had a large comfortable bed, though the room was very compact. Niggles were bad reception on the TV, and a noisy fan heater; though warm it would keep switching off//on every 2-3 minutes with thermostat, and a musty smell in corridor.
The 2nd night however was not good; a pub next door? had a party/live band playing until 3am which meant sleep was impossible. I advised the reception about 1am, as well as the fact that a portion of the room carpet was soaking by the window from a leak (which he noted). He mentioned a pub was next door but I don't think he realised how noisy it was as it couldn't be heard/away from the reception.Party noise if by-far the last thing I want when staying away for work, and I certainly don' t expect this from a business-oriented hotel especially for the price.
I mentioned the leak again in the morning when I checked out, I was told that it would be looked at, with no other information being provided, gratitude to point it out or apology, or questions about my stay.
