My sister and I stayed for 2 days at the SkyCity Hotel during a quick trip to Auckland. This is our home town and the first time we have stayed in a hotel there.

The hotel room was clean, modern and spacious. I was amazed at how little traffic noise there was despite the fact that the hotel sits on one of the cities busiest streets. We had a lovely view of the city and the water.

The valet parking was very handy and the valet drivers could not have been happier or more helpful. Check in and check out was simple and quick and everyone was professional and friendly.

There was construction going on while we stayed however it was limited to the hours of 7am and 7pm and it did not cause us any problems. The construction did cause the closure of the hotel swimming pool but we were able to use the SkyCity Grand Hotel pool if we wanted, which was nice.

We will happily be back to SkyCity.

Rooms looked like new beautiful, cleanest hotel I have ever stayed.
I had to call the hotel reception a few times and the staff were fantastic helpful & friendly.
The rooms seem bigger than other hotels I have stayed in. Over all a really great experience, I will only stay here next time i am in Auckland.
(Location is a plus too)

Room Tip: I just booked a room and was great.

While in Auckland, I stayed there with some customers and we had the opportunity to visit and walk around from there. Very well located, it is a really nice hotel, a monster in term of size a so many floors and room you can get lost quite easily.
The interior is modern, trendy and done for gamblers.
It reminds me a bit the Las Vegas feeling, but down under.
If you are willing to gamble or just watch, a nice place to stay.
Otherwise, the best location for day trips and city walks.

This is the second time staying at this hotel. Since our last stay the rooms have had a makeover. The room was big and airy, with a massive bed. There is also an ipod dock by the bed which is a nice touch. Its all clean and new, a great improvement since last our last stay.

Bathroom is good, just a couple of touches could be made to improve it, like the toliet seat, which looked like if a large peson sat on it it would snap in two! but all in all really great, and at a great price as well.

We eat at Orbit, and I thought it would be overated, but how wrong was I, it was top notch!

Room Tip: Make sure you get your parking validated.
