Reviewed 29 September 2015

I was a little hesitant going into the SkyCity Grand, as my last stay in Auckland was at the Langham and I was very underwhelmed by the "5 star" hotel. Imagine my surprise when I got to the SkyCity Grand... It was lovely, perfectly located, and everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked...

They were also friendly and approachable and the location was good with queen street nearby for shopping. Nice view of the Harbour from my room. Room was also spacious and...

After a very long flight from Los Angeles, we arrived a little after 6am. We had booked for the night before to ensure that we could check in immediately and the front desk staff that greeted us were friendly and helpful at that hour. We had a room with a view of the harbor and Sky Tower. It was very...

They looked after my bags from morning as I was on business. On my return my bag was in the room and I was handed the key. Rooms are well appointed and modern. Free wifi was fast. Lots up upmarket inhouse restaurants as well as numerous cafes within a stones throw. Will stay again!

Room was located on the west end of the hotel so didn't have the best view, but the king size bed and amazing shower and bathroom, as well as a 42 inch TV, more than made up for that. Located in the city center it was a easy 5 to 10 minute walk from everywhere we wanted to go. Staff...

I stayed for 5 nights in one of the refurbished rooms - very nice décor and lot of attention to detail - loved the coffee machine (nespresso-like). It's a very central location - easy walking distance to a lot of the city centre locations.
