We booked our room through our IHG Club allowing us to book for the weekend of the 1st test between the Lions and All Blacks Rugby teams. Auckland was bulging and bustling everywhere in reds and blacks. Our reception was excellent, our room was very nicely appointed with a super bed and nice hot shower. We ate dinner the 1st night in the restaurant Aria in the hotel and it was a fantastic meal. We enjoyed excellent views of the game on our TV while working on our computers with great Wi-Fi access. We have a 4:45 wake up call tomorrow morning to catch an early flight, arranged through the concierge desk. Very impressed with all staff.
