Hotel and Conference Centre Joins Distinction Hotels Group

Palmerston North Hotel and Conference Centre Joins Distinction Hotels Group


Distinction Hotels is delighted to announce the latest addition to its New Zealand-owned and operated hotel group -- Travelodge Hotel Palmerston North.
Distinction Hotels has purchased the Palmerston North hotel and will be taking over operations from May 28 2014, when it will be rebranded to Distinction Palmerston North Hotel & Conference Centre.

The elegant 4-star hotel is situated in the hub of Palmerston North’s buoyant CBD. It is just a few minutes’ walk from lively cafes, shops, theatres, art galleries, the museum and the convention centre. Boasting 85 well appointed, modern guest rooms, it is the ideal accommodation choice for the smart traveller.

The property offers one of the largest conference venues in the lower North Island, with four meeting rooms and extensive on-site professional, conference co-ordination services, catering for smaller groups or up to 500 delegates. Further complementing the meeting facilities is the hotel’s cosmopolitan restaurant and two stylish bars.

Distinction Hotels Chief Executive Duncan Fletcher said the group’s latest acquisition was a strategic move to offer additional services and accommodation options.

“The Palmerston North hotel specialises in meetings, functions and conferences and we know the demand is there,” he said.

“We see this as a great opportunity to grow Distinction’s corporate and conference portfolio by refining and adding to the services already offered.”

With its latest acquisition, the Distinction Hotels Group will now have a portfolio of 11 hotels in locations throughout New Zealand. These are comprised of premium Distinction Hotels and the group’s ‘sister’ Discovery Hotels brand which includes three 3-star hotels.
