Waldorf St. Martins Hotel & Apartments are located at the border of Grafton and the Upper Central Business District of Auckland, close to Auckland University, AUT and Auckland Central Hospital medical facilities.
We are located about 1.1 Km from Newmarket business, retail and office centre. This modern high rise residential & hotel complex enjoys a spectacular view over Auckland Central Business District, Grafton Gully & Auckland Harbour.
Nearby are two large central Auckland parks, Albert Park and Auckland Domain, popular for walking and jogging, relaxing amongst the beautiful gardens and trees, viewing historical landmarks and statues, as well as outdoor concerts and other events. Auckland Domain is also home to the Auckland War Memorial Museum, one of New Zealand's most impressive historical buildings, and a key attraction for families and visitors to Auckland.
The complex's central location and its proximity to most of Auckland's attractions and business activities is suitable for both permanent and short term stays.
