Sun 23 Mar 2008
Positives: Great location, comfy bed.
Negatives: Hotel booked rental car, car didn't arrive, had to jump few hoops.
Comments: The hotel is perfectly located in Auckland, close to Sky Tower and close to the harbor. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The toiletries are nice also. Small issue with the concierge regarding a rental car not showing up was ultimately resolved by taking taxi to rental facility paid for by Rental company.

Positives: Clean, New and Large size room with all amenities, and centrally located.
Negatives: It was summer time in Auckland when we traveled and the air conditioning in the rooms were not cool enough and was centrally controlled by the hotel.
Comments: We had booked 2 rooms for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, as the hotel rooms in most foreign countries are quite small. However, we were very surprised to see such spacious room with large windows and ample room for luggage and even an extra bed. The facility was very new. The beds were comfortable. The rooms had all the required basic amenities. The hotel is located in a very central place close to many city's attractions, restaurants and shops, all in walking distance. The hotel even had a large laundry room with complimentary detergent. This helped us after a 2 week cruise vacation, where we could not do any laundry at all. The hotel also had a friendly staff and lots of information on sight seeing and tours. We will definitely stay at this hotel, when we visit Auckland again.

Positives: Concierge service and staff was exceptional.
Negatives: Rooms could have been a little nicer.
Comments: Location is pretty good; plenty of places to eat nearby and it's just a short walk to Sky Tower. The rooms overall aren't bad, but I've stayed in other Crowne Plazas that had nicer rooms (such as Sydney). I'd classify these as a notch above average. But what I really enjoyed at this hotel was the service: concierge was excellent and helped us with everything we needed quickly, enthusiastically, and professionally. They did the usual tasks like booking tours, but also did things like dropped off our rental car for us and provided us with an American 110-volt adapter to charge our electronics' batteries (something a lot of other hotels couldn't provide, and their adapter was nicer than one we used at a five-star hotel later in the trip). Overall, a great experience and would recommend.

Positives: Central location with most sights within walking distance or short cab ride.
Negatives: Minimal eating choices at hotel and in immediate neighborhood.
Comments: Good location for exploring the sights of Auckland. Must be an independent traveler as the concierge help is minimal.

Positives: Comfortable bed, newly decorated modern room and bath.
Negatives: Heater did not work well.
Comments: It is within walking distance of the wharf and all the shopping and restaurants and some of the attractions. The concierge staff was very helpful with our plans. The look of the hotel was very nice, clean, new and modern. It was a nice place to come home to after a long day out.

Positives: My room had a view of the water though it wasn't on the water.

Thu 16 Mar 2006
Positives: Great location, large modern rooms, friendly helpful staff.
Negatives: Is not on a main street. Almost looks like a alley.
Comments: Hotel is around the corner from the Sky City casino and tower. Easy to walk to. The rooms are very large, very modern and very clean. They have a movie channel that is free and runs 24 hours a day. Nice added feature. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I totally enjoyed my stay. Although the Crown Plaza is a very nice hotel once you are inside, the street it is on is not very appealing. It is a side street and almost looks like an alley.
