Crowne Plaza Auckland Hotel – We’re all business, mostly.

We know that business trips have changed – we used to check in, check out, and go home as soon as possible. These days we want to make the most of every opportunity
and seize the chance to learn more and do more in a place different to the one we call home. Whether it’s by yourself, or if you invite family and friends to join, extend your stay at Crowne Plaza Auckland hotel. Check out our Modern Business Traveller guide and make the minutes outside the boardroom really count.
