At the Sofitel in Auckland, nothing was left wanting. The spacious rooms have both a tub and shower, and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast is a hearty smorgasbord of fresh tropical fruit, delicious breads or muesli, and eggs if you choose. And the location, right in the Viaduct and close to plentiful restaurants and nightlife, was perfect. Get a room that looks over the internal courtyard for soothing waterfall sounds.
