After the year we’ve just had, it would be fair to assume that you may have missed the opening of one of the most charming boujee hotels in Auckland.
Tucked away in the heart of Grey Lynn and just down the road from Ponsonby Road, Hotel Fitzroy, curated by Fable, is a new boutique hotel you definitely need to know about. Whether you’re looking for an ultra luxurious home away from home, a touch of class for that special staycation or a chance to discover The City of Sails for the first time, this spacious, carefully restored grand old villa will help you do that in the utmost style.
Make your way up the tidy garden path and you’ll be greeted by your impossibly well turned out host and ushered into the lush interior. Expect every detail to have been taken care of, from the well appointed furniture and fittings to your preference for breakfast. Once you’ve made the important decisions from your oversized chair over a beautiful glass of tisane, it’s time to make your way up to your room. Choose from 10 next level Superior or Luxury rooms... all come complete with free WiFi, flat screen TV, Nespresso machine, black room slippers (a first!) and your bathroom boasts local and sustainable bathroom amenities and even comes with under-floor heating to keep those tootsies warm.
Next it’s time to kick start your night on the town by taking advantage of the delicious, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the boujee library or out on the deck looking out over Ponsonby. You’d be forgiven for not wanting to leave the room, but should you want to hit the town, we have a few suggestions right here.
That night expect one of the best sleeps of your life among the soft bedding of your twin or king size bed. If you need to contact staff, an iPad is left in the room for your use. In the morning you’ll awaken to the breakfast of kings delivered right to your room on heavy trays with literally everything your hungry heart could desire. Ka pai. Dog lovers should know that this boutique hotel is pup friendly, allowing you to bring Fido on your travels —they even have a dog menu on hand.
If you’re looking to treat yourself or a loved one to a stay they’ll never forget, the Hotel Fitzroy is the one.
