I booked this hotel on a Pay 2 nights, stay 3 offer for a Twin/Double room. I was in town on business.
I got room 302 which had a Queen and Single bed. Picture of room was as per advertised/photos - tasteful, clean, comfortable.
Location is great, just a short 5min walk will get you anywhere in downtown Wellington. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby.
Noise at night is as can be expected from any inner city hotel with single glazed windows. Not perfect, but exactly same as anywhere else in world in a city.
Parking in the basement: it's tight but not terrible. I had a rental Corolla and it was easy. A Landcruiser or other large 4WD may struggle, but that's inner city parking in a basement. There is a Wilsons Carpark 30m away where you could park if you didn't like the basement (extra $).
- Wireless internet should be free. I paid $10 for 1GB data that was available for the duration of my stay. My 3/4G on iphone was faster.
- $20 parking per night is a bit steep. I would expect no more than $10 or maybe $15 at a push. Otherwise it adds 20%+ to the cost of staying the night.
- TV in room was terrible. Old style, small (20"?), no freeview. Every room should have at least a 32" freeview flat panel. They are so cheap now!
Would I stay again - highly likely. Room, comfort, and location made this a good option.
Remember I stayed on a 3 for 2 night deal. If I had to pay full price I would feel all the addons (parking, Internet) would make it not great value for money. If on my next visit there was still no decent TV and free internet (we are in 21st century), I may be tempted to try another place in town for the sake of variety and better facilities for a business traveller.
