Rydges Auckland Hotel
Lonely Planet’s 2014 edition has Auckland as one of the top ten cities in the world to visit.
Auckland was chosen for its cuisine, culture and coastal scenery with Lonely Planet saying: "Food, arts and exploring the coastal hinterland are all excellent reasons to extend your stay in New Zealand's biggest and most cosmopolitan city."
Mayor Len Brown said the accolade from the world's number one independent guidebook was well-deserved. "It shows Auckland is becoming known the world over as a destination in its own right, an exciting international city in a stunning natural setting, and an umissable South Pacific urban experience. The work we are doing to make Auckland a fabulous place to live and visit is paying off and putting Auckland on the map."
The top-10 cities were independently nominated by more than 500 Lonely Planet authors and staff and selected based on topicality, excitement and "special X-factor".
And, of course, Rydges Auckland can look after all your accommodation needs.
