Another happy trip. Great spot in central Auckland. Good restaurants onsite, rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Casino was fun for a couple of hours. Shopping is close. Valet parking is a must if you are a stranger to the city, so much easier. Luke our valet was very helpful and his service was great.

Not my usual choice of Hotel however with the Airport hotels in Covid use we decided to stay in town before catching a flight early in the morning. Stayed here 12 years ago. Clean, good service, comfy bed. Good gym. The pool is long gone sadly :(. It has nothing on the Grand but hey, its not meant to be on par with that market leader. Would we stay here again? Possibly.

I wasn't sure what to expect when i was booked in here for work. Icy (on the front desk) set the tone for a great stay when he accomodated my requests for a room away from any noise. So grateful for the room i got. The room was immaculately presented each day and even meeting the house staff in the corridors with their friendly "hellos was lovely too. Great amenities too. Loved the shampoo and conditioner. Room service meals were...delicious. My little bits of feedback. 1. I found the loud music quite full on around the reception area. But thats probably the casino vibe...which this country girl wasn't use to. 2. Not keen on the secret lights hiding behind the pillows. It took me ages to find them. 😄hahaha! 3. Would have liked the power socket in between the beds to be higher...or at least white so you can see it better. (Sorry, to the house staff, for pulling the plug on the clock. I just couldn't see that there were two sockets) Hot tip: Underground Parking. Try and park near the lifts marked Atrium. (In the centre) The theater lifts will take you to the other side of the block away from reception. Well done to all the team.

Dear Katsolo, I was thrilled reading your feedback - thank you so much for the lovely comments about Icy, the house staff and your in room service. I have forwarded your comments them. Thank you also for your "little bits of feedback". We always take feedback very seriously and try to make changes wherever possible. What I can do in the meantime:- - I will check with the Entertainment Department about the level of sound in the Lobby. - The secret lights in the headboard looks like it is here to stay, so I'm glad you found them. - Great suggestion about the plug casing to be white instead of black. I can ask. Thanks for the tip on the parking, it can be a challenge for some, including staff. 😁 I am so happy that you decided to book your work stay with us. I hope we get to see you more often. Take care. Safe travels. Warm regards, Lisa

Reception area has a severe lack of seats for waiting patrons. Front desk staff did not know that PayWave could be used to pay for rooms meaning I had to go outside in the freezing winter night and find an ATM to withdraw cash to pay my room bond. The rooms were great and discrete. However the view was lacking. Economical room rates for the location and room quality. Bed furnishings and room ambience were great.

Dear amour_fou6, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am pleased that overall you enjoyed your time with us and that you delighted in your room and our central location. I do apologize that you were inconvenienced in any way and were caused some discomfort during your stay. I have forwarded your comments regarding the lack of seating in the reception area to our Hotel Manager to see if it's possible to add more. Just to clarify about the PayWave payment, we do accept PayWave payment for the room, buy not for the pre-authorization of the security bond payment. I am sorry that you had to brave the cold to draw cash from an ATM when we do have ATM's on the Casino level located on L2. I do hope we get to welcome you back in the near future. Take care. Warm regards, Lisa

Received a voucher to stay at Skycity tonight, and unfortunately do not see us back here anytime soon. From the outside, Skycity looks to be the heart of the city where everyone wants to be, however the Skycity Hotel is anything but. In a single night we have encountered an incorrect bedding situation (booked for twin room and received a single king), a faulty AC/heater that stays at a balmy 22 degrees, dirty carpet and a TV that malfunctions every 10 mins and needs turning off to reboot. Luckily we've only needed to stay the night, however I imagine customers paying an arm and a leg for what should be wonderful accommodation won't be receiving their money's worth. With it being my second time staying here and not much improvement to the experience, my advice to Skycity is this: Quality customer service is EVERYTHING. The devil is in the details, and if you can't show care to your customers over the little things, then the big posturing gestures won't matter either. A friendly inviting welcome, access to extra bedding in the room, adequate elevators, a thorough system for cleaning, willing helpers at the other end of the phone -- these are the things that take what is status quo in accommodation to the next the level. This is no way a dig to the staff who have to do an often thankless jobs, but the powers at be who run this show really need to self-reflect in what it takes to run a great hotel, as they are currently aligned with the trope that NZ customer service is not up to par with the rest of the world. My plans to come back here over the next several months are now detered, as I will seek out alternate hotel accommodation when coming to the CBD moving forward. A real shame.
