We flew to Los Angeles on Friday January 24. Our flight to LA was uneventful until we found out that US AIR would not transfer our luggage from the Arizona flight to the Air New Zealand flight. Now we don't travel light so we immediately pondered getting 200 pounds of luggage from Terminal 1 in La to Terminal 2. Those of you have sited La know what …

Auckland is still cool!

Back to Auckland. Dropped off 2nd people mover in Wellington before flying Jetstar to Auckland. Jetstar was good for us. Their policies are consistent with American airlines. Not what we like, but at least we're used to it.

Upon arrival, we picked up our 3rd Toyota people mover from Jucy Rentals. Apart from a slightly out of date GPS we …

    As with all the Hilton's on this trip service and staff friendliness was excellent. Nice balcony room overlooking the harbour and they checked me in at 8.30am fresh from my flight from LA. Outstanding!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Auckland

    Hated it!


    The most expensive hotel in Auckland. The location is great, but the staff very arrogant. The pool smells bad. And, never pay extra for a room with a harbour view, before you know it a huge cruiseship docks right in front of the hotel, and you cannot even open your curtains anymore, the cruise passangers can step right on to your balcony! Plus reloading the boat goes with an unheard amount of noise, and all this starts at 4:30 in the morning!!!!!

    Beatiful and fun


    The architecture of Auckland surprised me in a negative way -- no apparent city planning combined with faceless, undistinguished modern efforts. Utterly lacks charm.

    Super views and location


    The Hilton, located on the wharf is a stunning hotel. The decor is very modern with the emphasis on the views out of the windows. Standard rooms are not large, but still have huge floor to ceiling windows. Beds are very comfortable and bathrooms are large with separate shower and large bathtub. Breakfast is expensive, but a lovely menu and buffet. It is about a block walk to the ferry building with a lovely restaurant called Harborside, also where you can catch the ferry to Waiheke Island. There is a Brazilian type restuarant called Wildfires that is very popular and a Vodka bar called 5 degrees where everything is made of ice. Next door is the Maritime Museum and you can take the "Pride of Auckland" boats for a great sail on the harbor.

    Quite Hip


    This is quite the uber-groovy new spot. I have stayed for business several times and have really enjoyed the location and the lobby bar and restaurant were especially fun. The rooms are well appointed. The staff is not overly warm and friendly but did their jobs efficiently. Seems they hire the pretty people regardless of job history...very L.A. If there is a big event in the Viaduct area, you could be hard pressed to get a cab because you are on the very end of the pier. If you're afoot then you are close to all the fun and not far of a walk. If it's busy in town, I would recommend the Stamford. Great quality yet not directly in the congested area of the Viaduct.

    Fantastic view and decoration


    This is the most amazing hotel I ever stayed. Unfortunately I just stayed there from 6PM till 3AM the next morning, but next time I have a chance I'll return.

    I was given a corner room on the 5th floor, which had the most amazing view over the wharf and over the city. I usually sleep with the curtains closed but this was too much to be lost and I kept them open all night.

    The decoration was superb. For instance, they painted one side of the halls in one color, a shade of brown difficult to classify, and the other wall was painted in white.

    The bed was fantastic as well as the bathroom. Definitely an experience not to be missed.

    Ultra Modern hotel in an ideal location


    This hotel is right in the middle of everything sticking out into the Harbour of the City of Sails. Close to the best restaurants, shopping, and sights in Auckland. The rooms are narrow but quite attractive and have everything you could need. Watch out for the incredibly loud shower door in the designer shower!

    This is a Hilton?


    Expecting a standard Hilton, we were very impressed with this jewel.

    A bit overpriced


    Best thing about this hotel is the view--we were right over the water--had a definite cruise ship feeling from the balcony. Weather in Auckland was terrible so we did spend a good amount of time in the room. Room service breakfast was nicely served and on time. But room was about 400 NZ and seemed a bit much unless this was a business trip.

    We could have stayed out of the central business district and paid less, i.e. in Devonport,and will do so next time.

    Hotel on a Pier


    The hotel is fairly new (1998) and on a historic pier a few blocks from the heart of the city. My wife and I stayed in a harbor view room for two nights on our honeymoon.

    Great hotel, except for cruise ship


    We stayed 2 nights at the Hilton between the Louis Vuitton and America's Cups. Great room overlooking harbor, great location near the viaduct, great staff helping with any need. Only issue was on second night when a cruise ship docked next to hotel at 4:30am, blocking out the sun (we were on fourth floor, about midway down hotel from end). Seems the cruise ships come about once a week to this standard port, so check ahead to be sure your waterfront room will stay that way through your stay.
