This hotel was my first stop on a 2 week solo female trip around New Zealand. I arrived at the Auckland airport after my flight from LAX and took the Super Shuttle to the hotel. The shuttle had several stops to make before dropping me off at the hotel. I was glad my motion sickness pills were still working since there were a lot of winding roads and combining that with jet lag and driving on the other side of the road it could make you ill. The hotel is part of the Skycity Casino. The room was clean and comfortable. I felt safe at this hotel. The hotel was mainly picked for its location and decent reviews. It was easy to walk to restaurants, shops and the harbor. I was using Intercity/Great Sights for some of my transportation during the 2 weeks and their office was conveniently around the block. The Great Sights bus was able to pick me up at the hotel the next day. My view was of a courtyard which wasn't very exciting. I thought the price was a bit high but found most of New Zealand to be pricey. I arrived in the morning after the 13 1/2 hour flight. I highly advise staying awake until night time to reset your internal time clock. This usually works well for me on my international trips. I walked around town and had lunch. For dinner, I decided to eat at the Skycity food court. The meal at an Asian place was awful and I had GI problems the next day. I am unsure if it was the dinner but I don't recommend eating at this food court. I was just pretty tired at that point and didn't feel like going out for dinner. I would recommend this hotel for it's location and cleanliness. There may be better places if you have a car but for me this was the best location.
