Thank you for your valuable feedback. Unfortunately we had to use the stand alone units as that is the only feasible option for the building. On the bright side, there are only a few days a year in Auckland that are hot and muggy!

Thank you for your feedback, we will work to improve our service to guests. However CBD parking is very limited and our price is comparable to other 3-4 star hotels in this area.
