Fodor's Expert Review Stamford Plaza
Albert St. and Swanson St., Auckland, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
Constant upgrades, noteworthy service, and attention to detail keep this mid-city hotel at the top of its game. Standard rooms are large and furnished extensively with natural fabrics and native woods in an updated art deco style. The best rooms are on the harbor side—the higher the better. On-site restaurants are a cut above the average.
- close to town
- good service and lovely staff
- tends to get busy with group tours
