Full accommodation information

The perfect location, stylish décor and fantastic service make this one of the very best places to stay on your trip to New Zealand’s largest city. 

With an ideal location in between the stylish Wynyard Quarter and Auckland’s famous Viaduct Harbour, this hotel offers chic accommodation, incredibly attentive service and plenty of top-class amenities.

The perfect base for exploring the city, you’ll find Auckland’s main Queen Street just a 20-minute walk away, and the fascinating Maritime Museum just a stroll along the waterfront.

The hotel itself offers spacious, light and stylish accommodation, whichever room or suite you opt for. Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the magnificent views, including the famous Auckland Sky Tower. Enjoy amazing vistas across the water from a Luxury Marina View Room, or opt for the ultra-luxe Deluxe or Prestige Suites, each of which offers a private Juliet balcony – all the better for enjoying the sublime views across the harbour. Enjoy separate rain showers and luxurious marble bathrooms, accentuated by the hotel’s cool colour scheme.

Luxurious touches such as the heated pool, Jacuzzi and award-winning SO Spa allow guests to relax after a day of exploring Auckland; guests booked onto late flights can also use the spa’s facilities to freshen up before departing. Lava Dining serves some of the most superb French fusion cuisine in the area, and stylish Sabrage Bar is the perfect place to enjoy an evening cocktail.
