Heritage Auckland Hotel Review: The Art Deco style of the once-famous Farmers department store has been preserved in this 467-room hotel overlooking Auckland's waterfront and business district. Extensive facilities at this 1920s gem include two gyms, a heated rooftop swimming pool, an indoor heated lap pool, a tennis court and two restaurants --- of note is Hector's with its unique sail "ceiling." As well, there are plenty of business-friendly extras: thirteen flexible conference and banquet rooms offer breakout areas and space for up to 400. Bedrooms are nicely furnished in contemporary style, and those in the Tower have convenient residential amenities, such as microwaves, washing machines and dryers. Tower suites take it up a notch with kitchenettes, complete with utensils and dishwashers.
