Dave F. Couples - 11/08/2019 AccorHotels review

My wife and I stayed recently for a one night stay and everything from the booking to check out was top notch. Communication via email was excellent to finalise the booking and dinner reservation. Check-in was relaxed and friendly. Dinner at Harbour Society was exceptional. We had the SO Amazing set course meal and every course delivered was of a high quality. Service was excellent throughout. Probably the best and most consistent dinner we have had in a long time. Overall a great stay

Everything was amazing except, the flooding of the bathroom, when your turned the shower on, flooding the entire room almost reaching the carpet, throwing towels on the floor to stop the water floating to the carpet. The other item we were very disappointed in, was the breakfast, everything was cold and a bit lack lusture.

Nothing like it in Auckland! Tiny tweaks to make exceptional

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Mo… Couples - 10/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Staff are exceptional. Love that they are encouraged to express their personal flair. Hotel looks incredible. Free minibar = awesome touch, feels decadent to have access to something normally forbidden! Loved the note from housekeeping and the little treats in the room. Combining personal touches with fabulosity makes it feel really welcoming while also super premium. Tiny things we thought about that could make things even better: - if you offered car valet service we would have taken it, then you would have kept the whole $100 deposit. Driving away in a clean car after an exceptional weekend would have really been next level! - this was our second stay in 3 months but you guys didn’t notice that so you talked us through everything, when we already knew it - we booked a club room for the balcony but were not able to find any information about what club privileges entitled us to, until we were in our room, which seemed odd! The benefits are awesome and you should be communicating them? - There was no guidebook in the room with room service info etc. maybe you don’t have it? - Our room key has locked us out before 12 on both stays even when we have a late checkout. Not a major but we noticed that it happened both times. To be clear this is by far our favourite hotel for a couple escape from kids weekend! It used to be the Langham. Wouldn’t recommend anywhere else in Auckland - just So/!

Dear Morgan L., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the SO/ Auckland. Thank you for pointing out the the items which would enhance your stay with us. We have moved away from in room compendiums and all information is found ion the televisions. It is our pleasure to welcoming you back.

Anonymous Business - 05/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Was just a quick overnight for business. Staff were all lovely. Definitely felt like still a new hotel with low occupancy and learning the ropes. Rooftop bar was the best aspect. The bathroom In the room totally not to my likings all. I travel very often all over the world and I am not a fan at all.of having an open bathroom and toilet in a hotel room. It's a cheap way of saving space and a terrible trend that I don't think will last. Noone I know likes it. A separate bathroom is a must and I wouldn't book again probably because of this

Dear Kevin B., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the SO/ Auckland. I sincerely apologise that the room was not to your liking. We have a beautiful virtual tour on our website showcasing the different types of rooms in our hotel. I have no doubt you will find one more private and suitable for your needs.

Margie Couples - 05/08/2019 AccorHotels review

It was great,,,,but would have been extremely better if your windows were at least double glazed,,,,,the noise from the construction site next door ,,,would certainly differ us from staying again.. Loved the free mini bar,,,,but the healthy options were missing...I would like to see only healthy options,,,,we all nead to stay away from sugar.... Staff were amazing,,,,once we got used to working the lift,,,,,we liked the magic of it

Customer review rating 4.6/5

A C. Couples - 05/08/2019 AccorHotels review

From our arrival we were made to feel special. The staff look after your every need, the reception is the beginning of an amazing experience. After check in we went to the Spa for the Lava Lover Massage package which was incredible for some pampering. Our room was luxury plus, super quiet and clean. We went to Harbour Society for Dinner and had the So Amazing menu, the food was out of this world, the taste and presentation made this a very special evening, the staff looking after us were informative and engaging to make sure we had the best experience possible. After Dinner we visited the Roof top bar for cocktails, the place was pumping and lots of fun. Overall we cannot fault staying here, it has everything for everybody, you just dont need to leave the place. Thanks for making our stay exceptional.

Daniel C. Couples - 04/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Although the investment in the fit out of the new SO Auckland is exceptional, the warmth and care with which the reception team welcomed us, checked us in, and escorted us to the elevators was the most memorable element. The clever touch of setting up the safe in our room and using information from my website profile was a very clever touch and one I will always remember.
