Auckland New Zealand 1010
At first glance, the Hilton Auckland looks like something out of Santorini, Greece -- so sleekly white that the water of the harbor almost reflects on its exterior. Built right up against the cruise ship dock (views could be hampered when big vessels are in port), we loved the feeling, while standing on our balcony, of being surrounded by the sea. The hotel is very contemporary inside, a real hipsters' place, with a highly acclaimed (though somewhat pretentious) restaurant and a fabulous bar.
