Tour the City of Sails From This Centrally Located Hotel

Peruse the Piers

The Hotel Grand Chancellor is in a prime location in the Central Business District, its fourteen stories towering among the sites and attractions just steps away from Viaduct Harbour. Auckland is New Zealand's largest city, and visitors have a variety of things to do by the beach, like sailing, learning about the local aquatic life on an eco-safari, or placing their bets at the local casino. The hotel is centrally located and guests can opt for a day trip outside the city to appreciate the less urban natural beauty in one of the close by volcanic sites or mountain ranges.

The knowledgable 24-hour front desk and hospitable staff will help guests with any directions and advice for navigating the city and its outskirts.

Lodging for All

The hotel caters to all kinds of travelers, from soloists on business to families looking for an accommodating hotel in the heart of Auckland. An onsite business center, with a computer station with high-speed wireless Internet (available for a surcharge), is especially convenient for those visiting the city for work purposes. The hotel offers childcare services for an extra fee, or parents can spend the day with kids at the pool exclusively for children. Note that anyone under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult in certain areas of the hotel. 

Make Use of the Guest Room

Each of the 80 climate-controlled guest rooms comes complete with fully functional kitchenette, perfect for those adhering to a budget and preferring to dine in the comfort of their own room. The rooms aren't extraordinarily large, but adequate for a good night's sleep. Great views of the harbor and downtown Auckland can be seen from the offset balcony in each guest room, and booking a stay on one of the upper floors will improve your view of the cityscape and absorb less noise from all the buzz on Hobson Street.

The Bottom Line

Guests checking the Hotel Grand Chancellor website will find one of the best values they will find in Auckland City. The hotel serves breakfast only for a surcharge, but a short walk to Queen Street will allow for some shopping and access to the city's restaurant scene. Pay the extra surcharge for Wi-Fi connection and plan your excursions in and around the city with ease.
