Combine sleek rooms with gorgeous views, improved only by sundecks and private balconies
Jutting 300 metres out into the Waitemata Harbour at the tip of the Princes Wharf complex, Hilton’s Auckland offering commands stunning waterfront views in a city centre location. In fact, it’s sited within minutes of many of the city’s major attractions with the Sky City entertainment centre, Sky Tower, Civic Theatre and Auckland Art Gallery just a short walk away. However, simply head out the hotel’s lobby to find the cafés, bars and restaurants of Viaduct Village and Wynyard Quarter on its sea-lapped doorstep. If you’d rather head further afield, the Ferry Port – just 200 metres from the hotel – can ship you out to Auckland’s neighbouring islands.
Contemporary and faultlessly modern, the Hilton Auckland’s commitment to cutting-edge technology extends to its ultra-comfortable Serenity beds, stopping off at high-speed internet access and LCD TVs along the way. And, whether it’s relaxing on the Italian furniture or refreshing in the granite bathroom’s separate bathtub, you’ll be well looked after. While all rooms feature a balcony, we recommend upgrading to a Harbour View for vistas of Auckland’s famed waterfront and, in the Deluxe Harbour View Plus, sights over to the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. For the best panoramas consider the King Hilton Bow Suite for 270-degree views, hosted by private balcony seating areas. In all, the hotel's recent refurbishment is evident throughout.
The hotel’s signature FISH restaurant serves only the finest seafood, inspired by the creativity of chef Fraser Shenton and New Zealand favourite Gareth Stewart. It’s all dished up to what are billed as ‘arguably the best harbour views in town’ while warm timber tones and an outdoor deck – complete with fireplace – make for an atmospheric dining environment. Whether it’s freshly opened oysters, Argentinian red shrimp or wagyu beef, you can expect to be impressed by both organic ingredients and impeccable service.
One of the Hilton Auckland’s unique features is its heated lap pool. Perhaps taking note from the hotel’s jutting setting, it extends out over the side of the hotel for underwater views over the city harbour. For further fitness needs, make use of the jogging track or take yourself off to the gym where state of the art cardio and strength machines enjoy yet more floor-to-ceiling views. After dinner, retire to the cocktails of the Bellini Bar – there are over 130 on offer – with mixology classes and high tea also available. Lastly, booking with Wexas, you'll enjoy complimentary WiFi.
