I tend to stay at the Sofitel Viaduct Auckland. The Viaduct location is pretty central, right on the water.. And the hotel is pretty decent.
I've only ever stayed at Ski Resorts in Queenstown, generally, they're all much the same... Accor have many properties in the area.
Yes, in the Australia/NZ area there aren't many Marriott properties at present (7 in Australia + 7 more in development + 1 in development in NZ); however Starwood is very strong- In 2018 I would say that Marriott members would certainly be spoilt for, quality, choice.
