Stayed 2 nights for my wedding and couldn't have had a better location. The reception staff were outstanding and very helpful with the high traffic volumes of visitors and deliveries pre-wedding. I couldn't have survived without the valet parking either!
The hotel is beautiful, I love its quirks and it made a fantastic back drop for some of our photos.
We had a single level loft suite which was spacious and the beds and linen are incredibly comfortable. I wanted to use the bath and try the guest lounge but just didn't have time so would love to stay again some time, it is a fantastic location for a relaxing experience in the city.

We just arrived after a long journey (isn't it always arriving in New Zealand?) The receptionist was wonderful and told us that the room will be ready soon. We left the luggage and went for a short visit in the city. The room was wonderful with every confs you expect, big bathroom , good lightening and excellent bed. Very nice design too.I think it is well situated, sure will suggest to my friends.

I spent last night at the hotel before flying home to Australia~a special thanks to the 'graveyard' staff !
This property is a nonpareil.
The rooms are luxurious, imaginative, with a bed ( and linen) that bespeaks comfort.
Bar~ great menu, went twice in 6hours ! Friendly staff with a range of local wines and beers.

Next time, I am staying for a few days.

One thing, did ask about an ipod cradle, was told none...be handy ( and the website states it does). Was okay, I had mine.

Room Tip: Would imagine all are of equal luxury.

Really stylish hotel with very good service. Complinetary drinks for hotel guests for an hour each evening in their chic separate guest bar. Only stayed one night in a Classic room, but would certainly return.

On a recent trip to Auckland, I decided to stay at the Hotel DeBrett based on other's opinions from trip advisor. Forget the naysayers! A terrific hotel, beautifully designed, with a lovely restaurant, in an amazing central location.

All of the staff were friendly and helpful, and I don't think any hotel could be more pleasant. I arrived at about 9 am, and while there was no room available for me to book me into right away, the staff made me very comfortable in their "living room." I had some breakfast, and as soon as a room was ready, they came and got me. There were at least 2 gay couples eating breakfast while I was there, which made me feel very comfortable that I chose the right place; not to say that this is a gay-oriented hotel, because its not, but it is very gay friendly. (Don't want to scare away the heteros!)

The continental breakfast, which comes with your room, is sufficient enough. Not amazing, but nice. You can order hot food if you desire.

Everything worth seeing in the city is walkable from this location. It was perfect.

My highest recommendations!
