The Sofitel Wellington was definitely the best one of these (followed by Pullman Auckland). Everything is very new and pretty. The entrance is a bit narrow on arrival, but with valet parking this is no longer a problem. The superior room direction park / cemetery was pleasantly quiet. Breakfast was included and besides the buffet you could choose from various menus. This was served freshly prepared. The hotel is not right in the center, but this is within walking distance and on the way you can pass the cable car, which is a must anyway.
