Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for business and loved it. One of the best in Auckland that I have stayed in. The bed was great, bathroom lovely, and all the TV channels worked. It was also the one of the best stocked mini bars I have seen although I do not usually use these. Would recommend to anyone...

Firstly, the good stuff: Checkin was really simple and pleasant, lovely staff throughout actually, and straight to my room. My room was well appointed and spacious - beautiful big window but looked out across an industrial type roof top - was very ugly and with such a massive window there was no escape. I had room service three times -...

This place is awesome and right in heart of the city. Located across the street from the casino and connected by a sky bridge. A few walkable blocks from the harbor and other transportation. Tastefully decorated and the smiling and friendly staff, very clean and top notch

We flew into Auckland and had only one night in the city and stayed at the Skycity Grand. Driving to the hotel from the airport is not a bad drive and the hotel is easy to find.
