When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
My local tip is perfect if you enjoy sitting outside basking in the sun with a glass of wine – a visit to Waiheke Island. There’s so much to explore, with different wineries, hikes and activities, there’s something for everyone. If you’re feeling extra fancy, you can always take a helicopter ride over and land at one of the wineries.

Rydges Auckland Hotel has the heart of the city at its front door. It is the perfect hotel choice for those travelers looking to stay near things to do in Auckland. The hotel’s location close to the centre of the city makes it ideal for both business and leisure travelers alike. Rydges Auckland is just moments from the Sky Tower and Casino and Viaduct Harbour’s thriving bars and restaurants. The hotel also offers commanding views of the stunning Waitemata Harbour.

For things to do in Auckland that go beyond downtown and the CBD, access to the motorway system is conveniently close at hand. Adventurers can easily take in the famous Waitakere Ranges or Waiheke Island, a sparkling treasure of farmland, beaches and vineyards in the heart of Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf. For beach-lovers visit world-famous Piha or the picturesque Muriwai Beach with its colony of gannets.
