Hotel DeBrett’s interior is a design timeline for a century’s worth of artistic diversity – from Art Deco bars to 1950s features and lofty studio-style spaces; the hotel oozes an air of effortless cool. Small but stylish, this boutique hotel is incredibly edgy, with just twenty-five unique rooms, decorated with signature Michelle Deery-designed carpets and bright, but sophisticated, colour schemes – it radiates with retro-charisma. The restaurant, ‘Kitchen’, serves fresh local cuisine and there are two bars and a glass-roofed atrium where breakfast is served beneath high ceilings and chandeliers. As with many contemporary spaces, Hotel DeBrett is sleek, sharp and totally on-trend; guests leave feeling inspired by its unique, urban vibe. Fittingly located in Auckland's fashion district, numerous shops, restaurants, bars, art galleries, theatres and museums are just a short walk away.
