Debut of Deluxe Accommodation for Summer Indulgence

Click for big version.

InterContinental Wellington guest experience administrator Teina John checks the finishing touches in one of the new Deluxe Guestrooms opening 20 December. Teina knows the hotel inside out having been a housekeeper at the property for more than twenty years and has seen a few changes over the years but nothing of this current project’s scale, which is renovating around 80% of the hotel over a nine-month time frame.

The first stage of the InterContinental Wellington multi-million dollar refurbishment opens on 20th December with the completion of the first full floor of Deluxe Guestrooms.

A newly defined accommodation level for the hotel, Deluxe Guestrooms feature several enhancements which deliver additional guest comfort via tailoring to individual requirements: multi-device high-speed wireless internet connection, digital audio hub, 46 inch widescreen TV with multi-channel options, digital lighting controls, USB connectivity ports and fully customisable air-conditioning/heating options. The completely new bathroom fit-outs include walk-in showers with both handheld and rain-shower heads, the addition of internal windows to allow more natural light and Agraria bathroom amenities.

To celebrate the new accommodation opening, InterContinental Wellington is offering two luxurious packages just in time for summer.

Memorable Escapes gives guests the chance to sample and explore the capital from a central and luxurious base with one night in a Deluxe Guestroom, buffet breakfast, car-parking and a late check-out (and of course the experienced service of our concierges which is similar to having the keys to the city) - from $389 per couple.

Indulgent Delicacies offers guests a decadent overnight experience in a Deluxe Guestroom, three-course dinner at signature restaurant Chameleon, a bottle of Mumm champagne and full buffet breakfast – from $439 for two.

The chance to win one of these delightful escapes is available on the InterContinental Wellington facebook page.

For reservations call 0800 801 111, email reservations.wellington@ihg.com or visit www.intercontinental.com/wellington.

Gordon Campbell: On Drone Strikes And Judith Collins‘ Last Stand

The news that a New Zealand citizen was killed last November in a US drone attack in Yemen brings the drones controversy closer to home.

To the US, drones are a legitimate response to the threat posed by the al Qaeda organisation and its franchisees... To the US, the drones carry the added advantage of not putting US troops at risk on the ground, and minimises the need for putting them in large numbers in bases in the countries concerned, always a politically sensitive point.

The counter-argument, well articulated by security analyst Paul Buchanan on RNZ this morning, is that this particular drone attack can be said to amount to an extra-judicial execution of a New Zealand citizen by one of our military allies, in circumstances where the person concerned posed no threat to New Zealand’s domestic security.
