There are a number of SkyCity casinos in New Zealand but Auckland is probably the biggest and the best if you really want to go all out with your cash. If you are on vacation in Auckland and wish to gamble, stay at a hotel near the casino for easy access. All that is left to do is withdraw some money from the bank, visit the casino to play and return to your hotel when you are done gambling. These are three choices for you in terms of hotels near the casino.
SkyCity Grand Hotel
The casino is actually in the premises of this gorgeous hotel so it makes sense to stay here if you have the budget to do so. The rooms are divine with breathtaking views and there are many facilities you can take advantage of including the use of the fitness centre, a pool, bar, room service and much more.
Crowne Plaza Auckland
This hotel is just 0.11km away from the casino, the rooms are comfortable and luxurious although maybe slightly less so than the Grand Hotel. The service at this establishment is amazing, with staff doing everything in their power to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. Again, there are many facilities in this hotel including a fitness centre, so it offers way more than just a bed for the night.
Econa Lodge City Central
If you are looking for something a little more basic and more affordable, this is the ideal hotel. It is just a walking distance from the casino and will offer you a comfortable bed to sleep in after a long day/night of gambling. There is free wifi at the Econa Lodge, in addition to a shower, a bar and even a restaurant, which is really all you need.
