The check-in staff member who looked after us was far from welcoming which didn't auger well for our one night stay. The room however, was very spacious, clean, offered a good view over the city and part of the harbour. Although the bed wasn't the usual super-king size it was extremely comfortable. The bathroom amenities were ample and even included a disposable razor & toothbrush & toothpaste. Although we usually stay at another hotel when we come to Auckland we both agreed we would definitely be back to stay at the Crowne Plaza.
"A fridge and bottle of water in the room is a must"
I booked via wotif for overnight accommodation at Stamford Plaza Auckland because of previous experience in Stamford Plaza Brisbane. Quality of service in Auckland was not as good as I received in Brisbane. I was particularly concerned that the room did not even have a fridge and no cold water.I believe that fridge and cold water are most essential necessities in hotel accommodation even if there is no mini bar required or provided.
Central location with easy access to shops and a wide variety of restaurants and bars all within walking distance. The hotel provided a quiet and comfortable sleep in a clean room with the staff being friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
Fantastic experience! We drove down from Hamilton and were very impressed with what we experienced... friendly staff, clean rooms, fantastic food and 24hr tea and coffee (with milk ALWAYS readily available!). It was impeccable.
The captain was also friendly and informative and let us look at controls and things for the boat.
The only thing was waking up at 7am for breakfast but this was well worth it as the view from the boat at that time was amazing so it didn't bother me that much. Overall, we highly recommend.
Good quality hotel in a central location. Plenty of good restaurants in SkyCity and neighbouring streets.
The hotel was spotlessly clean, everything is good quality.
My only problem was that wifi had problems one evening, and the hotel doesn't have much of a "personality".
Set atop SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre, this hotel is across the street from Sky Tower and the SKYCITY Auckland …More
On a peninsula overlooking scenic Waitemata Harbour, Auckland CBD is not only the country’s major business centre, but plays host to a concentration of artistic and cultural venues in addition to nightlife precincts. In more recent years, much of the waterfront has been reclaimed for high-end residential apartments, trendy cafes and bars, marinas, and public recreational use.
