We usually stay at SkyCity or the Grand when in Auckland but they were both booked out so chose the Crowne. We absolutely loved everything about this place from the price to the service which is top notch, the breakfast buffet is spectacular! Being located a street over from SkyCity you are walking distance to entertainment and restaurants! Never thought I’d be converted but this is my preferred place to stay now. The rooms are clean and offer complimentary toiletries like toothbrush, razors, combs and slippers, along with a great mini bar! The only thing we missed was free WiFi but this is certainly not a complaint. We even got a late checkout of 12pm for no extra cost! Top stuff Crowne Plaza 🙂
