Helpful Hints from our regular travelers who use Auckland Airport Accommodation
If your travel is for business, do you really need to be located in the city? Unless you can walk to your meetings, maybe a hotel at the airport will suit your purposes better. Just like any other day, you will be heading into work for 8-12 hours and should have no real need to return to your hotel room throughout the day. Stay in an Auckland Airport Hotel and you will generally pay less than you would in the central business district. You will also avoid having to get up hours earlier than needed. By staying close to the transport hubs you avoid the need to allow additional time for delays and traffic jams prior to departure. Plus most providers offer a free shuttle service. One thing we have also noted is that the staff at Auckland Airport Accommodation providers take wake-up calls seriously. They know the importance of these calls and the consequences. So unlike many other stays, I have never missed a flight (due to a missed wake up call) .
It is a good idea to also list in writing, what you want from your stay. Quality ratings are a good indicator of comfort, but do you want to pay for options you know you probably won't use? Most websites will list all the amenities such as 24 hour reception, mini-bar, room service, valet, laundry etc. Compare these offerings and if you find you're paying 20-30% more for the use of a gym or sauna (that you probably won't use), then theses savings are worthwhile.
Finally, decide on what your budget is and stick with it and consider the inclusions on offer. These could include free breakfast, a drink voucher and discount tickets to local attractions or free parking.
As with anything you decide to do a little research often pays dividends and a good way to do research on accommodation near Auckland Airport is to read up on the reviews submitted by guests who have previously stayed there. These reviews are unbiased and are often good measure of what you can expect from for your stay. It is not necssary to read every 'Airport Hotels Auckland' review placed, simply try and guage an average by looking at the 1- 5 star value placed.
5 star = Excellent experience
4 star = Great value for money
3 Star = Value for money
2 star = Below average
1 star = Poor
