Sky City Grand Hotel
Auckland, New Zealand
Personal Impression and Location
This is a 5-star hotel that opened in 2005 and is very close to the famous landmark of Auckland the “Sky Tower”. Of course, I have not had an opportunity to stay here but this is appears to be an outstanding hotel and is very well located right in the heart of downtown. For those who like to gamble, the Sky City Casino is right across the street. A visit up to the top of the sky tower offers an incredible view of Auckland.
The rooms have every amenity you would envision in a five star hotel. King size beds and each room features photographs by the famous New Zealand photographer, Robin Morrison.
The hotel features top New Zealand artists throughout the public areas. A picture of a bedroom is featured here. The rooms also feature complimentary wireless and broadband connectivity.
The hotel features some new restaurants that are gaining an excellent reputation. The sky city center is also adjacent to the hotel and this features numerous restaurants.
There are many places to stay in a big city like Auckland. Based on having stayed at many of the hotels in this city, I think this new hotel offers top quality accommodations at not that much more than the other hotels in downtown Auckland. The close proximity to the Sky Tower I see as an advantage. It is truly breathtaking at night standing below the tower.
