My stay in Auckland, New Zealand was truly a magical experience.

In large part I’d have to say due to the supreme staff and accommodations at the 5 star hotel:

 Sky City Grand.

Grand indeed!

Everything about the Sky City was was grand.

The rooms, the restaurants, the entertainment, the entire experience was grand.

Perhaps the most grand thing about the Sky City Grand Hotel (and the most important) was the hotel service and the staff.


Supreme Staff and Service


Exceptional in every way.

Anything you needed or requested was attended to within minutes and with a smile.

It was really quite remarkable and such a pleasure to stay in a hotel that truly understands the importance of it’s clients and the old “the customer comes first” concept.

Another thing I really liked about my stay here was that it was almost a city within a city.

There always seemed to be so much going on.

Glamorous people bustling everywhere, so many restaurants and bars, a spa, pool, gym, and plenty of shopping in any direction you walked.
It had a real classy, urban, upbeat tempo about it.
