Looking at other travelers' reviews, I think there must be a lot of variety in the rooms and how well they are maintained or when they were last updated. Our room (3015) was clean, mostly well equipped (toaster, kettle, refrigerator, oven, stove top, WASHER and DRYER!!!, but limited numbers of dishes and glasses) had a good view and was quiet....

We stayed only one night because, They charge you for valet and internet, but don't even have valet except on weekend we don't use hotel wifi but you still get charged. This has to be illegal somewhere. went to eat in the restaurant and our hostess was to busy going outside to smoke instead of waiting on us. next morning...

We stayed here the night of our wedding purely due to location to our venue. The room was a little run down and needs updating, the bathroom door wouldn't stay closed and if you have the sliding door open the front door would bang. Positives were the location and great view from the balcony and the the staff were very...

Don't be fooled by the majestic exterior of the hotel . It looks almost like the Raffles hotel of Singapore,Peninsula hotel of Hong Kong or the Mandarin Oriental of London . You will be sorely disappointed. There is so much potential in this hotel - great location near the city , the park, shopping and restaurants . It seems that...

I cancelled 2 months before the date and regardless of that they charged me the full amount plus parking charges on the 18th, claiming...

This place still looks grand but is very tired building well overdue for s face lift. Still enjoyed my stay and really enjoyed it's close proximity to the city, restaurants and cafe. I would stay here again

I stayed here several years ago when it first opened – it was seen as an audacious undertaking when built. It’s Gotham like appearance and height arrogantly strutting the Auckland skyline. Today, perhaps through familiarity, it seems a to have gained some humility, not least as a result of the many city high-rises that have appeared since it was built....

We have been staying here for a week and it is just brilliant. The apartment may not be huge but is perfectly appointed and comfortably decorated. We have travelled a lot and this is one of the nicest apartments we have stayed in. We are on the 20th floor and have stunning views over the harbour where we can see...
