SkyCity is very conveniently located, close to everything the city offers. Parking is exhorbitantly expensive though and our air conditioning had a fault that sounded like clinking glasses all night; which unfortunately kept us awake. Besides that hiccup, great stay as always.

Love staying here, so convenient to the CBD. Have stayed many times but this is first trip here in about 3 yrs. Only complaint i have is the seemingly extra effort to conserve power. There is not a lot of lighting in the room we had, was always a little dull, and the heating wouldn’t go above 20 degrees so on a cold evening it just created a cool draught. We found it warmer to turn it off. The bathroom set up was brilliant for us though, 1 adult and 3 teens ! Separated shower from bathroom. Staff all amazing.

We found the heating/air conditioning unit quite noisy and we couldn't seem to turn it off or down. My hubby rang the reception and they told us to turn the fan off but it didnt work. We thought it would keep us awake but it did seem to quieten down though we couldnt turn it off as we got v hot in our room. Felt quite stuffy in the morning in our room.

Impressive location, and site. The room however, didn’t even have a plate or any cutlery. Not a bottle opener insight either. They expect you to dine there. But if you can’t even snack, that’s a little slack. Also the room 291 was starting to look a little dated. So a solid 3 1/2 stars.
