Overall Great Hotel with Superior Service

Would recommend Tue 27 Mar 2012
We stayed 2 nights at the intercontential and had a great time. The gym was very nice for hotel standards and free. We utilized the concierge service many times as it was expensive to pay for Internet. They were consistently professional, attentive and helpful. The location was great and we walked to Te Papa museum, Courtneay and Cuba Street as well as the Cable cars.


The Matterhorn was an excellent restaurant on Cuba street. A little bit further walk, Osteria del Toro was also excellent for dinner.

A good place

Would recommend Sat 19 Mar 2011
Just stayed there.


Head down to the waterfront and enjoy the pubs and restaurants. I learned of them just after I'd had an OK, but not great late night meal in the Hotel's restaurant.

Would not recommend Tue 23 Mar 2010
I was promised a phone call when the room was ready but "it didn't go through". Perhaps the "InterContinental" check-in desk can't make international calls. I suspect they never tried. We went back and apparently the room was ready but the bath towels and soap were missing and the hand towels were dirty. Throughout our four day stay, the Business Center was never staffed. There's no wifi. Internet access costs $10 for half an hour or some such ridiculous rate. The food at the Chameleon lived up to its pretensions, which is fair praise indeed. Service, though, could have been more attentive. Every night and morning, watch the maitre d' fiddle with her computer for minutes before one of the waiters notices you "waiting to be seated" and takes pity. Yeah, you could cough, but why should you have to? You could die of thirst waiting for a refill. New Zealand is full of great coffee, so don't touch the regular joe at the InterContinental. I could sleep fine on a soft bed or a fairly hard bed but not this bed. The seemingly warn-out mattress offered very little support. They did take good care of our bags on the first and last days. When I needed first aid, the concierge was helpful and knowledgeable. The gym guy really tried. Well, it was pretty cheap, at ~150 USD / night.
