Very Clean and comfortable. Worth the money. Hot Chocolate and Plunger coffee in our room was awesome! Walking distance to the water & museum. Lots of great restaurants and craft beer bars nearby. Would stay here again.

If you're looking for a hotel close to the city center, this is the place. I was able to walk to most everything needed. Very clean place and very nice staff. Room had full kitchen amenities. Free Wifi. Full grocery store about 3 blocks away. Definitely a thumbs up.

As usual we had a great stay at the Distinction. This time we stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom unit on the 7th floor with a city view. We have stayed here many times and always request the 7th or 8th floor which means little road noise and with the blackout curtains we always sleep well. The beds...

Stayed overnight for business, only need the room to sleep in. It was a spacious room, the bed was very comfortable and the room had everything you need. Bathroom was clean and fresh.

Second time I've stayed here. The location is great, close to Te Papa, and with good cafes in easy walking distance. The room is comfortable, with a good bed and also cooking facilities and utensils if you feel like picking up some food from a great gourmet supermarket just across the road. Staff were friendly, and check in and out...
