Staying in Auckland
Ideal inner-city stays
Booking your Auckland accommodation in the bustling CBD awards you the luxury of exploring this inviting and innovative city on your own schedule. Downtown Auckland is dotted with lodgings of every shape and size, including the always popular Waldorf, Chifley, Quest and Oaks establishments.
Whether you're in town for business or leisure, consider checking in to the iconic SKYCITY Hotel or Grand Hotel, with a day spa, dozens of restaurants and world-class Casino on site. Following in 5-star style, a stay at the Stamford Plaza can have you shopping on Queen Street or enjoying a show at the Vector Arena with ease.
Hip harbourside hotels
Auckland is known as the "city of sails" for good reason, tucked between multiple harbours with endless bays and inlets outlining the mainland. The city's waterfront pulses with energy, with visitors boarding ferries to outlying islands and filling the cafes in the vibrant Viaduct and Britomart precincts.
If a premium room with marina or city views sounds like your idea of a perfect Auckland holiday, consider staying at one of the luxury suites the Hilton, Sebel and Sofitel chains have on offer. Book a hotel close to Quay Street and enjoy an evening of al fresco Auckland dining against the harbour.
Auckland airport accommodation
If you're only briefly greeting Auckland before heading on to wider New Zealand, why not stay close to the airport before the next leg of your journey? With the airport under half an hour from the CBD, you can still see the city sights and sleep-in before your next flight.
Take your pick of 4-star hotels near Auckland Airport, such as the contemporary Novotel located directly opposite the international terminal. Other options include the Sudima, just a two minute shuttle from the gate, and the Holiday Inn and Best Western nearby on Kirkbride Road.
