As a place to stay in the Wellington CBD it ticks all the right boxes and throws in a few surprises. Given the competitive price, I would be happy to stay again next time I'm in town.
Located on the edge of the CBD it's convienient to shops and offices. However, if you are not staying for business, as most of the bar and restaurant action is located past the far opposite end of the CBD you may need to take a taxi more than you would like.
It is fitted out in a 'modern' chain hotel style that is comfortable. A welcome surprise was the kitchenette facilities in the room (we had a deluxe room). The full length and width window (thankfully with blind) between the bathroom and the bedroom was also a surprise. The rooms are not super quiet as road noise can be heard even on the higher floors. The aircon unit was also on the noisy side. The road noise and the aircon would be an issue if you are particularly sensitive to noise.
We found the staff to be efficient and welcoming.
