Hotel DeBrett – Auckland, New Zealand
Built in 1841, as one of Auckland’s first hotels, Hotel DeBrett has recently been revived. Now finding itself in the heart of Auckland’s super-hip fashion district, the Art Deco space boasts many of its original features. The deliciously wooden-panelled Housebar has been restored to its former glory as one of the city’s premier spots to be seen, and contemporary New Zealand cuisine is on offer from the kitchen. Warm, retro, yet with just the right amount of contemporary splashes, Auckland’s Hotel DeBrett looks set to carry on creating history for many years to come.
