Wellington is truly a walking city and Harbour City Motor Inn (Marker A) is in a great location, midway between the city's best attractions. Most guests arrive by car, park in the covered parking area, and walk to town. Guests rarely use their car while staying at Harbour City Motor Inn - there is no need as restaurants, events, or business meetings are all close by.

Relax at any of Wellington's excellent cafes, dine at first class restaurants or socialise in the Courtenay Place entertainment and Cuba Street precinct with glitzy nightclubs and bars.

Nearby cosmopolitan Cuba Street has small and intimate restaurants, eclectic shopping, bars and nightlife. Turn right at the bottom of Cuba Street and head for Courtenay Place. By day, visit Te Papa (Marker C), the national Museum of New Zealand. By night, this is the area for ethnic restaurants, trendy bars and nightclubs.

For those in a hurry, there is a bus stop (Marker J) on Willis Street, a couple of minutes from the Motor Inn. Buses will take you right through the centre of downtown Wellington.

Or a short walk down Victoria Street takes you to Manners Mall, cinemas, the City Council and the Civic Centre, Wellington Library, the Michael Fowler Centre (Marker D), Wellington Town Hall (Marker E), and TSB Bank Arena (Marker F). Turn left into Lambton Quay for fabulous shopping at the Old Bank Arcade, or Kirkcaldie & Stains Department Store, visit the Beehive and Parliament Buildings, Government offices and the Railway Station. A little further on is majestic Old St Pauls Cathedral, and the Westpac Stadium, home of local rugby and a great venue for exhibitions, Trade Shows and local Events.

Or turnoff midway down Lambton Quay and catch the Cable Car (Marker G) up through Kelburn to Victoria University and the Botanic Garden. There are few Capital Cities in the world where the waterfront is so accessible. Visit the Wellington Maritime Museum, The Queens Wharf Wellington Convention Centre, feed the pigeons in Frank Kitts Park, have a coffee at Queens Wharf, and stroll along the waterfront to Oriental Bay for an icecream.

See stage shows at the Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington Town Hall, the opera house or at Circa and other live theatres. Wellington hosts a variety of Events each year including the Festivals of the Arts and the World of Wearable Art and major film premiers at the restored Embassy Theatre.

For keep-fit enthusiasts, the Renouf Tennis Centre (Marker B) is in the walking distance of two minutes.
