James Cook Hotel guests enjoy touch of class

James Cook Hotel guests enjoy touch of class

Guests seeking more space to carry out business, or just some room to relax, can now enjoy a sophisticated retreat at the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor.

The popular Wellington hotel has capped its multi-million dollar refurbishment programme with the completion of the Club Floor on its top level, incorporating an exclusive lounge - the Club Lounge - for up to 25 guests.

"The Club Lounge taps into a growing international trend of providing executive guests with their own 'space' in which to conduct business or just relax and read," says John Primmer, the hotel's general manager.

"The specially designed lounge offers a retreat away from the hotel room or the bustle of the lobby. And it comes with some of the best harbour views in Wellington," he says.

Guests staying on the Club Floor have key card access to the Club Lounge which is equipped with a work station area offering unlimited broadband internet access and complimentary modem dataports for laptop connections. There is no charge for local telephone calls.

For those wanting to relax, a 42" plasma screen television, DVD, VCR player and stereo come at the touch of a button and there is a wide choice of magazines and newspapers.

A complimentary first class continental breakfast for Club Floor guests is served each morning in the lounge and all-day refreshments are available.

John Primmer anticipates the Club Floor and Club Lounge will prove popular with corporate and embassy guests, politicians and visiting celebrities.

"It is a luxury option for any guest wanting comfort and security, and that extra touch of class," he says.
