Wi-Fi, fine facilities and a super central location within walking distance of most leading attractions make the non-smoking Crowne Plaza Auckland fit for royalty. The 28-story, non-smoking Crowne Plaza Auckland holds 352 rooms with Wi-Fi, satellite TV, pay-per-view movies, minibars, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, safes, ironing facilities and hairdryers. Some accommodations access the Club Lounge with complimentary breakfast, drinks and snacks. Road warriors can battle the bulge in the gym and deadlines in the business center, then reward themselves with creative cocktails in the lounge or Japanese stone massages in the spa. The extensive facilities include all the expected ABCs, starting with an ATM, beauty salon and convenience store. Plan some day trips courtesy of the travel agency and car rental desk. The self-service laundry and newspapers are free. The Crowne Plaza Auckland lies in the central business district, less than a half-mile from Super Highway 1. Take in the views from Sky Tower, the Southern Hemisphere's tallest free-standing structure, four blocks away. Walk five blocks to the Auckland Art Gallery and Albert Park or stroll six blocks down Queen Street to admire the Town Hall. Get "high" two miles away at the Auckland Harbour Bridge Climb. Sea dogs and landlubbers alike cruise four miles for Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter & Underwater World. Auckland Airport is 12 miles from the property.
