Pullman Auckland gets vibrant new look

Keeping up with the ever-changing needs of guests is a must for any five-star hotel.

Pullman Auckland is building on its position as the hotel for the discerning cosmopolitan traveller with a thorough and stunning refurbishment of its lobby, restaurant and bar and a refreshed exterior facade.

The hotel has also refurbished its connectivity centre so guests can keep up to date with work while enjoying the Pullman Auckland’s world class hospitality.

Pullman Auckland general manager Rob McIntyre says the refurbishment builds on the values that the Pullman holds in high regard.

“Five star hotels must remain contemporary or they become uncompetitive in a fast moving hospitality industry.

“Pullman’s commitment to creativity, focus on quality and the pleasure of conviviality are all showcased within our new refurbishment. Space Studio has done a fantastic job in recognising our need to create an environment that responds to the needs of our guests,” McIntyre says.

At the connectivity centre, business travellers have access to the flexibility and mobility they need when out of town on business. Guests can catch up on their emails, charge their phones and laptops and chill out in front of the TV to relax and unwind.

In comparison, the new lobby area takes conviviality to the next level creating an intimate atmosphere where guests can socialise, relax after a long-haul flight and catch up with colleagues.

“Guests aren’t after a room; they are after a whole convivial experience. Our refurbishments combined with our existing 5 star facilities including our luxury health club and spa, ‘Spa at the Pullman’ provide guests with a true contemporary offering,” says McIntyre.

“These refurbishments have created a relaxed and social environment at Pullman Auckland, providing a luxurious and tranquil atmosphere for our valued clientele.”

Gordon Campbell: On Populism And Labour 2017

For many people on the centre-left, populism is a dirty word, and a shorthand for the politics of bigotry. In this country, it has tended to be equated with the angry legions of New Zealand First. Who knew they were not just a reactionary spasm, but the wave of the future?

Certainly, at the end of this week, the next US President will have won office (at least in part) thanks to his proven ability at (a) scapegoating refugees and migrants (b) wooing neo-Nazis and racial supremacists (c) attacking journalists and judges (d) threatening to jail his opponents (e) urging nuclear proliferation and (e) by promising to restrict women’s rights to control their own fertility.

On the face of that campaign record, there wouldn’t seem to be much in common between Donald Trump and say, Spain’s centre-left populist party, Podemos. Yet arguably, the similarities could be instructive for the Labour/Green partnership here. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Why Tax Cuts In 2017 Would Be A (Proven) Bad Idea

Ever since the world fell prey to the mullahs of the free market in the 1980s, no amount of real world evidence has managed dispel one key tenet of their economic faith. Namely, the idea that if you cut income taxes and taxes on small business, a wave of individual enterprise and entrepreneurial energy will thus be unleashed, profits will rise and – hey bingo! – the tax cuts will soon be paying for themselves ...
