My wife and I stayed here during a visit from Canada in Dec 2012 in Room 1603. We found it to be a very nice and stylish hotel with a great view.
Our room was a bit smallish but comfortable with light kitchen amenities. Cook top, microwave & mini fridge with some tea/coffee provided. Very clean and modern. The bed was very confortable and it was nice to have a balcony to step out onto to take in the view. It was also quite quiet despite heavy traffic below.
It would have been a nice amenity to have had free Wifi, which was not included in our stay. It is pretty much the norm to have free Wifi in North America and it seems very nickel-dimey to charge for it at a place like this.
It was nicely located a block off the waterfront where it is a short walk to a nice variety of restaurants. Also, the Te Papa Museum was only about a 10 minute walk and was in view of the room. We spent a whole day at this most interesting & free museum.
All in all, it was a very nice place in a good location and we would likely stay here again, but we would be more inclined to if there was free Wifi.
