We got a pretty good offer at Sky City, hence, decided to stay here. Check their websites for good offers, they have buy 3, get 1 night free etc.
We were in Auckland for around 3 days. During this time, we lodged at Sky City. I am reviewing only the rooms. We picked the Deluxe Std Room on the non smoking floor. The room was quite small and the bathroom was not great either. The heater did not work - we were there during winter. But the staff were kind enough to move us immediately to a different room.
The place of course has its advantages -
*Very close to queen st
*They have a shuttle bus that takes you on a small city tour - the bus captain is such a sweetheart! Dont miss this one
*They have many restaurants around. Indian, Mexican, Chinese etc. We tried many. Most were quite good.
*Choose the floors which are at least 10+ [Please dont expect a view, nothing spectacular].
*Use the buses arranged by the hotel. They take you around, drop you off at the museum, queen st etc and also pick you up. Just sync up your timings.
*Do not opt for breakfast. Nothing great there anyway! Just get out and explore. There are so many places.
*Make sure you try the casino - @least for the kicks! It is a good, fun place!
*If you think you can avoid weekends to avoid excess cost, think again. These guys have almost same cost through the week.
Most importantly, have fun! :)
