Great Hotel

Skycity is the perfect staging point for anything in the Auckland area. The hotel is world class and the staff were great. The pool and spa very accessible and elegant. Parking was easy, either valet or on your own.

CLASSY & COMFORTABLE

Got the renovated room - no view, but still got a couple of harbour glimpses. room delightful comfortable and clean. 5 star facilities, try the bar at the japanese restaurant at the front entrance - ask for the deoxygenated ice with your drink! only thing to make it not perfect was the cheap nescafe single serve packets for my morning caffeine fix. Oh and no free water - $5.50 in the mini bar.

Posh but not pretentious

This hotel is in an excellent location in the skycity complex in the heart of Auckland. The rooms are huge with excellent views and are extremely comfortable. The staff are friendly too. Overall the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Absolute bargain! Would stay there every time in Auckland.

Excellent choice

Very central location. We bookke this as a last minute on a trip to Auckland and were pleasantly surprised. The room was excellent. Bed comfortable. A/C superb we like it cold to sleep and at some places this is a challenge Parking was very continent and they had a self parking deal that was hard to beat. $20 for an in and out. So we didn't use our car for two days and the parking fee came to $20. They also offer valet. Even thou it is part of a casino you wouldn't know it which was a bonus to us. We would definitely consider staying here on our next trip to Auckland

Excellent hotel, definitely worth the look!

Great staff and even better location. Very comfortable rooms and great views, not to mention the Sky Tower right outside. Don't miss brunch here, one of our favorite meals in New Zealand!

Newbee in NZ

Spent our first three nights in Auckland and booked the Sky City Grand for its location and free wi-fi. It was perfect - centrally located. A short walk to the Wharf, Art Gallery, Britomart. And a comfortable stroll to Parnell. We then headed to Queenstown. After our time in Queenstown, we decided to book our last two nights in Auckland with the Sky City Grand due to our initial good experience. Their sauna is great and it was perfect to relax our trip with. We also enjoyed our dinners at the hotel's The Grill. Both very affordable
