An excellent high class hotel , central to many attractions. We were able to walk to the wharf area, do our souvenir shopping and seek out very good restaurants and nightlife. The casino was an added benefit.
Customer service was excellent and security was top notch.
While it is a bit pricey, it is an excellent choice for the traveler who is looking for a great hotel in a great city

Centrally located. Comfortable large rooms. Surrounded by a number of easily accessible restaurants, cafe's, day spa's and close to the waterfront, oh and of course the casino. Great spot for a week end getaway from the kids.

We stayed here on the first and last night of a three week tour. They could not have been helpful. We arrived at 05.30 Auckland time after a 26 hour flight, and our room was ready for us at no extra charge for early check in. Huge soft bed, with a spotlessly clean fully equipped room. Breakfast of bacon and eggs was delightful in the hotels ground floor restaurant.
On the final day the concierge team were amazing, they stored luggage after check out ( which was extended at no extra charge as our flight was not until 9pm). They arranged airport shuttle. They arranged for a package to be posted out for me, all with cheerfulness and courteously. Central city location make it very handy for shopping and ferries,with the added fun of watch those with stouter hearts than mine throwing themselves off the adjoining sky tower, in a harness of course. We didn't use the casino or the other restaurants, but if the service and food is a good as Rebo you won't be disappointed.

the hotel is nice for a layover. I stayed here for one night. enjoyed the casino. You can walk to the harbour and near by restaurants. close the queens st where you will find the shopping as well. The breakfast buffet was fine (needs an upgrade on its quality) everything else was good. the staff is friendly and helpful.

We moved from another hotel in Auckland to Skycity and upgraded our room on check in. The room was absolutely fantastic, so comfortable and spacious.The minibar and amenity drawer was the best ever I have come across in a hotel when traveling with two champagne options, razors, medicines, toothpaste/brushes and great confectionary selection.the beds / pillows were so comfortable as was the sofa and chairs. We loved the room! The location of the hotel is fantastic with a number of restaurants in the hotel , a massive casino room and the access point to the Skytower. The breakfast selection and quality was absolutely superb and the staff cleared dishes immediately. This hotel also has fantastic staff.Sarah on reception was very curious, helpful and friendly and really made us feel welcome. The concierge team were also the best we have had in any of the 10 hotels stayed in NZ. The made getting our large cases in and out the room to the car easy and were very helpful with local places near the hotel etc. Overall this hotel is excellent and I will stay there again whenever I come back to Auckland.

Room Tip: Ask for a Barbour side ( rather than city side) room.

This hotel is fantastic and is now my new choice of accommodation when travelling to Auckland. It is in impeccable condition and well maintained. Rooms are very nice, roomy and have a good variety of amenities and HD TV. Free wifi is awesome too, fast speed in the rooms. The range of bars and restaurants is also great. In saying that thou, the nearby streets also have lots of eating options so you'll always be spoilt for choice. Casino and sky tower good extras on site too if they are your thing. Will definitely be back!
