We stayed at the Skycity Grand for 2 nights after arriving in Auckland from the US. I chose the hotel for its location and for the positive reviews. We arrived at 6 AM and took a taxi to the hotel. We were able to store our luggage and get changed before heading out in Auckland. We were also able to have early access to our room, an executive 1 bedroom with a fabulous view. The room was excellent with a comfortable bed and a small sitting area. The staff was terrific and helpful in every way. It was a bit of a walk to the harbor area but safe and interesting. We are not casino goers but it is right next door for those who are.

Usually stay at another hotel in the city, but it was booked, so we wound up at this hotel. What a pleasant surprise. It was in a better location, had a wonderful restaurant and a specialty restaurant in the hotel. We tried to get reservations at another restaurant and couldn't so we ate at the hotel and I was glad we did, the Japanese restaurant there was spectacular. We will stay at this hotel next time we're in Auckland

We booked a king bed superior room at a discounted price - the room was a decent size and clean but it, and the whole hotel, is definitely in need of a refresh. Fine for the price we paid but wouldn't be particularly impressed if it was much more.

Our reservation was made through a third party and as a result of communication difficulties, we were there a day early and our reservation for the following day was non-refundable. Amori,in charge at the reception desk, immediately checked us in and handled our problem while we enjoyed a delightful dinner in their restaurant. Everything about the hotel was perfect...location, reception, room size and cleanliness. We will definitely stay with Rydges again.

The first night of our stay was difficult due to the high temperature in our room after a warmer than usual day. We called the desk to ask for help and while they provided some fans it took the next day engineer to figure out where the extra heat was coming from. Even with that adjiustment, the bedrooms really needed more ventilation to be comfortable if you are there during warm weather, especially given the price of this hotel. Although they have a shuttle to and from town, it was not big enough to carry all the people who wanted to return in the evening and left us for a long wait - it should run more often.
