Last month, I had dinner at the Hotel Hilton, and I told fellow blogger Carolyn that I will post her some photos after seeing her Queen Mary photos. Sorry this is so late in the coming. It is built 330 yards out to sea on the end of Princes Wharf and gives the illusion of being an ocean liner. If you go to the balcony, you can imagine that you are in a liner. You can see the water and the boats docked along side it. It seems like you are arriving at Auckland city.

Wow, Ann...how I would love to walk around that beautiful Hilton Hotel...or even stay there for a night or two! Thank you for sharing this in the honor of the Queen Mary. New Zealand is a destination my husband and I are serious about visiting...maybe I will actually see this scene with my own eyes (and lens). Wow!

Thanks for sharing these pretty images of the Hilton. I can imagine that would be a special experience to dine there.

I am a jungle man. My playground is limited to Cerok Tokun only.

Maybe I'll visit NZ one day and discover how Hotel Hilton is.

Maybe have some seafood there.

I ate on the QEII once, in LA. It was fun.

My son is now dating a girl who lived in New Zealand. I've only met her once, and I haven't asked her yet what she was doing there. I'll find out.

Beautiful location for the hotel.

It looks very different from out Hilton in here :D

PS: Thank you for the birthday wishes!

This is amazing! What an inspired idea. Now, did you take any pictures inside when you dined? That can be a tricky thing, can't it. Some managers don't mind, others will stop you. It always makes me nervous.

This is a very interesting hotel building. I can see how being there would feel like being on a liner.

Cheryl said...

Wow, what a lovely hotel. I would love to spend a night or two here...
