We spent 2 nights here at the end of April and it suited our needs for what we needed to do in Auckland.
The staff at concierge at the Sky City Hotel were so delightful and made us feel so welcome. One guy stands out for us, and he had us in stitches of laughter every time we seen him, so warm and friendly and wanted to us to stop and have a chat, which was a real nice personal touch, and he is a credit to have him on your staff - his name is Dave and he was so friendly the 2 nights we seen him out the front of the hotel/casino guiding people and cars to where they should be. Had another Maori guy the day we left (May 1st) who was also very good and had us laughing just about all the way to the airport - keep up the brilliant work. (sorry forgot his name)
The rooms were very comfortable, roomy and of course clean, loved the decor down the corridors of the hotel with 3 square size photos of NZ on glass then placed in a wooden frame - very stylish and made you feel you were getting all of the culture of NZ in one short space and not just Auckland.
We could not fault the staff in this place, from the reception desk, to the cleaning staff (did not use the casino) - would never hesitate to book here again.
Thanks to everyone at Sky City Hotel.

Room Tip: Any room I am sure would be nice within this complex, but if you can get a view of the Auckland Harbour Bridge that would be extra special.

Traveling around the world has always been rejuvenating for my husband and I. It's also a MUST to travel on our anniversary. This year we chose Auckland. It was a 11 hour flight from Japan via Air New Zealand business premier class. Full flat seats were comfy but traveling through the night, we definitely wanted to stay at a quiet, nice, hotel. Skycity Hotel made it sure that we had checked in early so we can take some rest in one of the nicest quiet rooms so we slept like babies. The service at the concierge was not only great but very friendly :) Rooms, definitely clean, had all we need... just great. We also had dinner at Dine by Peter Gordon's and enjoyed the dinner as well along with great service. I can't think of any negative viewpoints.....hmmm....but if I were to mention, it would be that I didn't get to hug the manager of the hotel Admir Mullaaliu that long in front of my husband to thank him for our lovely stay! And man, was he VERY HANDSOME!

Room Tip: I have read reviews of people mentioning that the harbourview from Skycity isn't all that great, but in this location overlooking the city, the harbourview rooms are more than what you would expect. If that's not enough...you can always go up the elevator to the observatory which is located right under the lobby to see the MOST exciting view of Auckland city.

Skycity hotel was our first 3 nights of 2 week NZ trip. Clean, modern and good service. We booked via an pre-paid accom. website and may have made a mistake (must check old emails). But upon arrival they confirmed a booking of 2 twin beds, however with a minimum of fuss they spoke to Manager and were were changed to a King bed room (no add. cost). This hotel is a little out of the CBD however we found the walks to CBD and the harbour & Britomart as great reconnaissance missions to discover cafes and a nice hotel meal, and of course shops.

Bed in our room was a bit too firm - but depends on what you're used to.

We had to do the Orbit revolving restaurant meal - Lovely - & amazing views. I would stay here again for sure.... even if my other half wastes a few $$ at the accompanying casino.

booked via Hotels.com and this was a good find..nice and modern - clean with very comfortable rooms..decided to upgrade to a suite on check in and was not disappointed..huge living area, shoe racks, rainfall shower and seperate bath with 2 Tvs..very impressive - also had the breakfast each morning at Fortuna and it was always fresh and good selection - this place has great staff and always willing to help - thanks to Sandra at check inn and also Shaun, Dicky & Alex at Concierge desk who helped with my questions and getting around Auckland - dont consider another hotel just book this place
