Auckland Airport Business Hotels

Auckland business hotel Novotel Auckland Airport Hotel with Auckland International Airport Terminal visible in the background

This 4 star Auckland business hotel is right next to Auckland International Airport Terminal. So it’s great if you’re only in Auckland for 1 night, and need to catch an early flight. There are plenty of rental car options and it’s always easy to get a taxi from the airport to anywhere in Auckland. However if your business trip is for several nights you might enjoy a business hotel in central Auckland instead.

Pullman Auckland Airport

Pullman Auckland Airport is the first 5 Star Hotel at Auckland Airport and will be the place to stay for executive business travellers needing an overnight hotel at the airport. The hotel has a bar, a n excellent restaurant on the top floor with runway and harbour views. Rooms are more upmarket than the nearby 4.5 star Novotel.

Auckland Business Hotel Conference Centre at Jet Park Hotel Auckland Airport

Jet Park has a large modern conference centre and is perfect for business travellers and company conferences. It’s close to the Auckland Airport and the surrounding business park too, so it also has excellent access to Auckland’s industrial heartland.

The rooms are well kept and reasonably priced. Therefore if you’re only in Auckland for a couple of nights, and most of your meetings are out of the CBD then this is a great option.

Jet Parks restaurant is very good however if you want to try something else, there are not a lot of other dining options in this part of Auckland, so you’ll need to head into the CBD.

4 star Family hotel room with two double queen beds at Holiday Inn Auckland Airport

This hotel is close to the Airport and Auckland’s main industrial areas. It’s great for one or two nights if your meetings are out of the CBD in south Auckland or West Auckland.

However it’s a long way to the North Shore from here, so if you’re planning meetings in Albany then look for something in Takapuna instead.

Sudima Auckland Airport Business Hotel Room

Sudima is a typical Airport hotel. It’s nice enough for short business trip. With clean, well maintained rooms and facilities. Making it great for those on a layover, flight crews and business travellers.

However it’s sandwiched between a major road and an industrial estate, so while it’s nice enough inside it’s not the greatest location. If it wasn’t so close to the airport then no one would stay here (or build a hotel here).

If you don’t want to eat in the hotel restaurant you’ll need to uber to find something else, as there’s nothing in walking distance.

Auckland CBD Business Hotels

Business Hotels in The City Fringe

Quest Mt Eden

Quest Mt Eden is new in 2021. There isn’t a lot of accommodation in this part of Auckland so it’s great to see a Business friendly Hotel in the area. It’s a short walk from Mt Eden which is a must visit landmark for any tourist visiting Auckland. The views are amazing. It’s a city fringe location, with frequent buses into the city centre, but if you don’t have a car you’ll end up using a few ubers in this location. The hotel offers studio or one bedroom rooms to a 4 star standard. They are all self contained with a basic kitchen, and laundry facilities. Very close to the CBD.

SOHO Auckland Hotel

SOHO Hotel is a beautiful new hotel in Stoddard Road, Mount Roskill. It’s a strange place to build a hotel of this quality which seems like it should be located in the Viaduct or the CBD. The hotel is lovely, but the area is mixture of industrial and residential. It’s not rough or unsafe it just isn’t a place to stay on a vacation. BUT it is a great option for business travellers. Access to most of Auckland’s Industrial areas is good with access to the Wester Ring Route close by. It’s 10 minutes from tyhe CBD in off peak traffic.

Business Hotels in Highbrook

Waipuna Hotel & business conference centre across the Panmure Lagoon

Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre is located on the Panmure Lagoon, which is an extinct volcanic crater that is now a tidal lagoon. When the tide is in the view is beautiful, however when the tide is out it’s not quite so picturesque. The lagoon has a 3km public running/walking track around it making it great for an evening jog.

The location is close to Auckland largest industrial areas, and the conference centre is one of Auckland’s largest, so this hotel is a popular Auckland conference venue.

It has plenty of free parking so if you have a rental car this is a great choice. If you don’t have a car you’ll need to take taxis because public transport isn’t great in this part of town.

The hotel has its own pool but serious swimmers will enjoy the nearby Lagoon Leisure Centre which offers a large heated indoor swimming pool, a gym, and an outdoor pool with diving boards and a waterslide in the summer.

While the hotel restaurant is fine, there are more lively bars and restaurants at the nearby Silva Park mall.

What makes a good Business Hotel?

It’s a combination of location and facilities. Ideally you want to stay near where you are doing business. If your meetings are all in the city then you’ll want a hotel in the CBD that allows you to walk to most of your destinations. If you have meetings all over Auckland then you’ll probably need a car and factors like parking and access to motorways will become a more important factor.

Many business people will want a desk in their room that allows them to plug in a laptop and keep on top of there email or make last minute changes to that sales presentation. Generally you’ll also want a hotel with a decent restaurant, and bar to celebrate that sale, or drown your sorrows if the deal fell through.

Many business trips a short and sweet so you may want a hotel close to the airport, which can really cut down on travel times and make the most of the available business hours in a one or two day trip.

If you’re lucky enough to have a job where you’re wining and dining your clients then you’ll want to be near one of Auckland Restaurant Districts such as the Viaduct, Ponsonby or Britomart.

Choose your hotel wisely and don’t be afraid to spend a little more on your hotel. You’ll usually save more by being in the right location. You won’t spend as much on taxis and you’ll be more productive as you won’t waste too much time travelling around the city.

We hope you find the Business Hotel that’s right for you.
