This Apartment style hotel is very modern and clean and tidy. Also has a great location and is reasonably priced. Downside is the hotel has VERY limited car parks. My stay was 3 nights and we spend $88.00 on parking as the hotels was full. Also the gym has outdated gear and isn't located in the Hotel itself.

Thank you for you comments. Sorry that we couldn't provide you with a car park. It is not often a problem but it has been exceptionally busy of late so reserving one is definitely best. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Tony

Nice modern Hotel in great location for restaurants, Theatres and Te Papa. Very helpful staff. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was lovely and spacious, had a nice kitchen and very comfortable bed. The hotel has a good selection of rooms so would be suitable for business people, couples and families.

Distinction Wellington is located near most of the coolest spots in the "Coolest Little Capital in the World." The rooms at Distinction are simple, sleek, and can accommodate long term stays (kitchen in most rooms). We loved staying here and we will stay at Distinction the next time we visit Wellington.
