Best Business Hotels
This contemporary hotel enjoys a scenic location perched over the water at the end of Princes Wharf.
Resembling a cruise ship, this hotel allows guests to sleep, dine and drink not just overlooking the water, but literally over Waitemata Harbour. Large glass windows and a minimalist white décor enhance the soothing atmosphere of the expansive liquid views. Guest rooms and suites (165 in total) feature balconies to complement the panoramic views, and amenities include 32-inch LCD TVs, work desks with ergonomic chairs and full-size baths with separate showers.
The fitness center is small but well-equipped, and the outdoor swimming pool wows with its sleek setting through the center of the hotel, creating the illusion that it ends in the harbor. It should come as no surprise that seafood is the specialty at house restaurant FISH. Parquet flooring, contemporary furnishings and a deck with a fireplace blend to create a nautical feel in this dining venue, while Bellini Bar carries on the look, offering a light and airy setting for "Twisted High Tea," cocktails and a generous Bellini menu. The seven meeting and event rooms stand out for their gorgeous water views. They can accommodate up to 750 guests for conferences and social occasions. Adding to the hotel's business appeal is its walking distance to the Viaduct Event Centre and the city's Central Business District.
