This well-loved and historic landmark, has been completely refurbished and transformed into the stylish 4-star Scenic Hotel Auckland.
Constructed in 1954, it was Auckland's first high-rise office building. The building is now protected by the Historic Places Trust, and as such, every attention was given to the lavish restoration of this unique landmark.
The art deco charm of the 1950's is reflected throughout the hotel's architecture with beautifully presented areas such as the entrance foyer. The guest rooms have a modern apartment style, yet carry the art deco theme through in the finer details such as the eye-catching black and white artworks that complement each room.
Scenic Hotel Auckland is centrally situated on the corner of Queen and Airedale Streets. As a guest, you will appreciate the superb Auckland hotel accommodation location that puts some of the city's best attractions, entertainment and restaurants at your doorstep. The hotel is located directly across the road from The EDGE Performing Arts and Conventions Auckland which incorporates the Auckland Town Hall, Civic Theatre, Aotea Square and Aotea Centre (including the Herald Theatre).
The hotel is a leisurely walk to the dynamic waterfront and downtown shopping area.
