Stayed one night on a package which included parking, wine, chocolates, cocktails and breakfast. We were upgraded to a suite which was absolutely wonderful - spacious, spotlessly clean, everything (and more) that you need. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was superb, everything very fresh and well presented.

After trolling through numerous packages and hotels on the 'wotif' website, my boyfriend and I decided to book the 'Baby Grand' package which included a chilled bottle of wine and 'decadence platter' of devine chocolates and brownie (not as impressive) on arrival, valet parking (can't comment on this, as we didn't drive! But the doorman in his tophat looked very fancy!), 2 complementary cocktails in the lobby bar (fantastic bartender - knowledgeable and friendly + delicious cocktail!), buffet breakfasts in the Terrace Restaurant (selection of cooked options, cereals, juice, youghurt, pastries and fruit - not above expectations but certainly nice), and a 1pm checkout which was wonderful rather than rushing out in the morning! The city view luxury king room was gorgeous, with 2 large plasma screens, large windows, modern bathroom, and extremely comfortable bed!

The lap pool was quite cold but the spa and sauna were lovely, the gym was small with a few treadmills and weights, but didn't trial it! Worth asking for a room on a high floor as well - the view from the 18th floor was stunning!

Staff were friendly, facilities clean, modern and impressively designed. The only complaints I could make would be cold tea at breakfast and staff walking into our room at 12pm on checkout day when the 'do not disturb' sign was on the door. Otherwise very impressed and wish we could have stayed a week!

Everything you would want from a city centre five star hotel - clean, grand, and modern. Rooms are spotless, staff are welcoming and helpful, hard to find fault. Hosts "dine" by Peter Gordon, an award winning restaurant, and is around a 15 minute walk away to "The French Cafe" - arguably the best in Auckland and well worth a visit for fine food.

I would suggest the hotel is more aligned to convention attendees and those on business, the size of the hotel does leave it lacking the vibe of a boutique property, but that's as expected and not the fault of the hotel. Easy walking distance from the harbor, domain, museum and many other attractions. Heading out to more interesting parts of the city for the evening like Ponsonby does need a cab.

Stayed on night on the hotel's "extravagance" package. All was good, from the valet parking, right through to the checkout at the end. Maybe not quite a 5 star hotel really, but certainly 4 stars plus.

My three nights stay at the Skycity Grand was truly great.I checked in with family late , almost midnight , the moment we arrived the receptionist warmly welcomed us. the staff was really pleasing and the guys at the concierge desk helped with several maps of the city to help us explore the city better.
Breakfast served at the hotel was also nice and the chef made us good vegetarian food at special request.
Located next to the SkyCity Casino , and very near to major tourist attractions ,Skycity Grand is a good value for money .

Recently stayed for a night with my wife and loved everything about it! We booked kind of last minute on the "glamour package" and that was exactly what we got. When we arrived we were greeted by great service that began and finished at the driveway. Our car and luggage was taken care of and we were left to check in. A very helpful gentleman at the desk asked if we would like to pay for an upgrade to the top floors and a harbourview room and we thought we would splash out so we did. WOW! Amazing room with stunning views (when we checked in the sun was setting in the direction the room faces, very romantic). Our package also included 2 free drinks in the lobby bar area and they were fabulous. The bartender also recommended we try Belotta. A spanish type bar/restaurant across the street. Great atmosphere and the food there was superb. Only thing I can find to complain about was the ease in which the casino took the change from my pockets... but to be honest, that was fun as well.

Loved every minute of our stay and will be back for sure!
