Perfect central location. Really trendy bars and restaurants on premises. Innovative $10 grab and go breaky (coffee plus wrap or similar). Good pool and okay gym. Downside is rooms a touch dated for price category, including showers a little small. These minor issues drop it to a four star rating but (depending on price point at the time) would likely...

Can't say enough about the friendly staff and great accommodations. It's also a super central location. Rooms are clean and big and the bathroom was great. There are lots of places within walking distance for dining. Elevators are very fast.

We decided to stay at a 5 Star Hotel to end our New Zealand Adventure in style. The SkyCity Grand didn't disappoint. The room was great, the views unbelievable. The staff were attentive and friendly. We had a walk over to the Casino which was great for people watching.

Reviews are always based on personal experience and share mine. For my business I am traveling for last 20 years for about 100 days/year and have the privilege to stay in 5 stars accommodations, this is to say that have some background to compare structures. This time it did not work here. Upon arrival after 16 hours flight at 11:30...

We stayed here for one night in a Premium Luxury King Suite and it was amazing! I was so impressed with how quiet the room was, I only wished that we had stayed longer! I really loved this place. I just wanted to also point out, that I called reservations to pre-pay for the room before we arrived and it...

This was my first place of stay in Auckland, we got in around 8pm. Unfortunately we did get stuck behind a group check in, but what can you do. We were seen to and given our room key quite quickly. The room was very nicely presented, which was to be expected. Clean and wasted for our first night, I wish...
