Hotel Description

Over the last couple of decades Auckland has become a truly cosmopolitan city, and it’s a transformation that’s reflected in the Hotel DeBrett, in the capital’s historic city center. Not only is it surrounded by creativity — galleries, theaters and boutiques line the streets — but it’s filled with it as well, featuring photography, sculpture, even toiletries from New Zealand’s finest makers.

With an atrium for sociable lounging and a drawing room with an enviable selection of books, DVDs and retro board games, the DeBrett feels less like a traditional hotel and more like the home of an extremely hip antipodean relative. The ever-attentive owners, John Courtney and Michelle Deery, are both authentic tastemakers — Ms. Deery even served as the hotel’s interior designer — and they’d be very cool relatives to have.

It’s got a distinctive look, which is all you can ask of a hotel designer — it starts from the ground up, in a way: Deery’s vividly patterned carpets will have you wondering what’s supposed to be so special about hardwood floors anyway. With twenty-five rooms it’s intimate, and the mid-century furnishings mesh with the Art Deco architecture to create a visual atmosphere that’s as fully realized as any urban boutique hotel. It’s sophisticated, to be sure, but New Zealanders seem to be congenitally incapable of snobbery — so cool, here, is anything but cold.
