Happy Birthday, Holiday Inn Rotorua


Happy Birthday, Holiday Inn Rotorua


Celebration is in the air at Holiday Inn Rotorua as the Qualmark rated 4+ star hotel marks its first year under the Holiday Inn brand.

General manager Marcus Keenan is delighted with the hotel’s first year, noting how guests have reaped the benefits of the Holiday Inn brand coming to Rotorua.

“My team has of course really enjoyed the benefits of wider exposure to the global support and systems that come with being part of the world’s largest hotel group, but the guests are the real winners.

“Our guests overall satisfaction has definitely been enhanced, with the team having complete confidence in the value and quality of the services they’re delivering.”

Keenan points out one of the key pluses is being able to offer guests the benefits of Priority Club Rewards, a multi-award winning guest loyalty reward programme offering exclusive benefits to guests that can be earned and redeemed at more than 4,400 hotels and resorts worldwide.

“It’s also been really exciting teaming the Holiday Inn service and accommodation values with the natural and often unique attributes of Rotorua and the surrounding region. Each day here delivers on so many levels whether our guest is conferencing, on business or on holiday.”

In addition, the hotel (which was formerly a Heritage Hotel) underwent a complete refresh in guest bedrooms from beds and soft furnishings to stationery, in-line with the international revitalisation of the Holiday Inn brand.

One of the largest hotels in Rotorua at 203 rooms, Holiday Inn Rotorua is located between the city and airport (which is now enjoying direct flights from Australia) and is situated on the boundary of the extraordinary Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve and Living Village, giving guests a constant visual reminder of the unique geothermal nature of Rotorua.

Well-positioned and equipped for conferencing and business meetings, the hotel has six different meeting spaces, as well as the ready-themed Pohutu Cultural Theatre.
