Grand Central to market Grand Tiara Hotel Rotorua

Media Release

Grand Central to market Rotorua’s Grand Tiara Hotel

An international hotel chain has today (subs 4 February 2002) signed an affiliation agreement to market one of Rotorua’s most well-known hotels, the Grand Tiara Hotel, Rotorua, formerly the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Centre.

Grand Central Management (NZ) Ltd, is the hotel and property management arm of Hotel Grand Central, a Singapore-listed hotel company operating in Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand.

Mr Mark Lind, Grand Central Management (NZ) Limited’s regional general manager, said the Grand Tiara Hotel, Rotorua, was rebranded late last year and compliments the Hotel Grand Chancellor brand.

“Although it has a significant tourism custom, the hotel is also a popular conference venue with excellent facilities for the corporate conference market.

“We aim to strengthen both sectors as we market the property through the group,” said Mr Lind.

Hotel Grand Central now owns six hotels in New Zealand. Among them is Wellington’s James Cook Hotel, which this year celebrates its 30th anniversary and, under Grand Central Management, has just completed an extensive lobby refurbishment with a room refurbishment programme to begin soon.

This week Grand Central purchased the 43-room Manor Inn in Dunedin, formerly the historic Wains Hotel.
