I recently stayed at SkyCity Grand on my short holiday in NZ. I truly enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again. The staff was friendly, always offering a smile, a greeting whenever I encountered them. I need to give special kudos to Manuel, he always smiled, sang a smile, gave a kind word. I arrived early on my check-in day, the room was not immediately ready which was no problem as I did arrive quite early. I had an early arrival flight from the US. I was accommodated as soon as possible which was early afternoon. The considerate reception staff did allow me access to the gym so I could shower, change clothes as I waited for my room to be prepared. This allowed me to go out and about in Auckland instead of waiting in the lobby for my room. The hotel was fully booked as the West Ham FC was staying at the Grand, they played Wellington the night that I arrived. My room was nicely appointed, the decor was pleasing and the toiletries are nice. One special feature for me was washcloths in the bathroom. It is at times a challenge when traveling outside the US to get washcloths. I have learned to travel with my mine but it was a joy to have them available when I arrived in my room.....it's the little things! I had a harbour view room. The sky tower was outside the room, I watched the crazy people jumping from the tower or walking around the outside observation deck.
The hotel is in walking distance of many things to see and do in the city. The hotel does offer free wi-fi throughout the entire hotel. If I return to Auckland, I would definitely stay here again if I choose this part of the city.
