24 Hours In… Auckland.
Slide Nr 2
8am: Wake Up In The Heart Of It All – Few Auckland hotels can rival The Grand Mercure for ambience and service. The lobby design, for instance, features a specially created icon unique to the hotel, inspired by Maori carvings and the undulating hills of Auckland harbour, while upstairs you’ll find great views at Attica Bar, in the midst of it all. Start the day with a full breakfast at the hotel, which includes a range of unexpected surprises such as honey from a beehive on the hotel roof, herbs from an on-site garden, and the opportunity to press your own fresh juice. A word to the wise before you set out: Stash some cash for Ubers or taxis, as the city is spread out, and public transport can be confusing.
