Convenience to airport. Clean & fresh new hotel. Not crowded with overseas tourists - good for NZ public but not for tourism or the hotel. An airbridge from covered car park to hotel would be welcome.

One of the best hotels in Wellington. Modern, nicely finished, comfortable and stylish. However, a lower mark is warranted because front desk reception staff falls short of greeting guests with a welcoming feeling that are expected for a 3-4 star hotel. You will likely deal with cold-faced reception staff who do not appear to really like their job, or like hotel guests for that matter.
