Great place to stay if you can afford it

This hotel is great, I really enjoyed my stay. If there is two things that I could fault, it is that the toilet seat is not very comfortable. Which is fine if you are not sick like I was :) Also the shower head/water pressure was rubbish, the public shower in the pool was better. The bathroom could have been cleaner, just needed the walls wiped down.

Don't get the Airbus Express from the Airport, the stop is on Queen Street which is fine, but its a big hill to climb up if you have heavy luggage.

ok.

Ok, we called the reception 3 times for assistance with a blocked toilet late at night. It took well over 1 hr to finally get someone to help. :( The room was clean, amenities exceptional and the size of the bed beyond belief - its massive

Morning Meeting, No Problem

I always have a good experience when staying at The Grand. It is in a great location with just a short walk to the Viaduct and only across the road from the Casino, or direct through the Sky Bridge. Had a couple of meetings first thing Monday so heading to Auckland Sunday afternoon made it a stress free and relaxing couple of days. Only downside was the floor I was staying on hasn't had the refurbishments completed that some of the other rooms have had at this point.

Good Value

Good size/roomy modern rooms & restaurants next to Skycity so not in it, easy stroll down hill to waterfront (bit tougher coming back up). Good value in winter months and yes, i had sun all weekend believe it or not

Costs $28 for an adult just to get to observation deck of the tower. Tip, dine at the restaurant on Level 52, spend a minimum of $30 and you get access to the observation decks on levels 51 and 60 and get some food and drink in a 360 degrees revolving restaurant. I spent $30 exactly but it was not enough wine to make me sky jump!

Weekend Getaway

I had booked Sky City Grand from previous reviews and thought why not. Staff was welcoming upon check in however we were not told the location of the pool and gym. We did have one of the high floors (level 20) which backed onto the poor facade of the Crowne Plaza Hotel as well as you can see across to their rooms. We had to keep our blinds and curtains closed as we didnt want to see anything happening in another hotel room. They said FREE WIFI and gave us the user name and password however in the room the WIFI was not working. I called down to reception who said they will have someone come up and check to see if we were doing something wrong but no one showed up for some time. While leaving, we advised reception who confirmed the way we set up WIFI on our devices was right and not sure why it was not working in the room. We did ask if there was internet that we can purchase but they claimed they thrive on such good free internet in the hotel that we dont charge our customers to use it. While searching for the user name on our devices we came across Crown Plaza Wifi and basically accessed theirs and paid $5 for 120 minutes and that was definitely reliable although we were using it from another hotel. Overall, outside the hotel there are alot of works happening as they are making a new pathway at the base of Sky Tower itself. Gets quite crowded and harder for the taxis to pick you up but no so much of a big deal.

Trip to see Michael Buble concert.

From the time we arrived, the Skycity Grand Hotel was great! We were early so the valet took our bags to look after for us while we went shopping in Auckland city. Upon our return, the lovely receptionist let us check in an hour early. Our room was nice and the kingsize bed very comfortable. As I am a keen swimmer I especially enjoyed the 25m indoor pool at the Skycity Grand. The location of this hotel is excellent. Surrounded by restaurants and takeaway outlets...there's plenty of food to choose from anytime of day and night. After the concert we went over to the nearby Skycity casino for a 'flutter'. We were up early for our flight home and the express checkout was appreciated. We would definitely stay there again.
