Intercontinental Hotel Group
Date Posted: 12/08/2018
Welcome to the neighbourhood, Hotel Indigo!
The Hotel chain will make its first New Zealand debut in 2021, making it the first time the region has seen a Hotel Indigo property. The hotel chain will become part of the Intercontinental Hotel Group once it opens, with IHG Rewards Club members being able to earn points and eligible night stays at the newly opened hotel. The Intercontinental Hotel Group has signed an agreement with Ninety Four Feet, an Australian property development, investment and construction company to open Hotel Indigo Auckland.
Unique to the hotels brand with no two properties being the same, each property draws upon the story, culture and nature around the area to inspire every aspect of the hotel ensuring that guests feel like they have arrived at the destination, and that it’s not just the usual stock standard hotel. The “City Of Sails” will be set as the backdrop of this new boutique hotel, drawing upon inspiration from local artists for its design, service, amenities as well as food and beverages.
The hotel will have a capacity of 225 rooms, over 41 levels, and will become part of a mixed use development in a coveted Auckland central location, including food and beverage and residential components that will create their own “Neighbourhood Story”. This brand new building will become one of Auckland’s tallest buildings and will become a feature amongst the Auckland skyline. The facade of the current historic building will gradually surround the new building while also blending elegantly around.
The hotel will feature an all-day dining area and bar, meeting spaces and a gym. Many of the stunning rooms will overlook the Auckland CBD and the iconic harbour allowing for some insta-worthy picturesque views right from your very own room.
