The Art of Maximising Wellington

The Art of Maximising Wellington

The combination of staying somewhere a little bit special while having complete connectivity with the city is the secret to maximising your time visiting a city, believes Geoff Naumann, Director of Sales and Marketing for InterContinental Wellington.

As a popular home away from home for discerning travellers, InterContinental Wellington has kept guests’ requirements firmly in view when incorporating many new design features in the remodel currently taking place.

The multi-million dollar refurbishment involving a significant part of the luxurious Wellington hotel saw the first phase introduce a newly defined Deluxe Guest Room category open with 84 rooms just prior to last Christmas.

Now, with the second phase opening this week, guests have the option of upgrading to the new Club InterContinental Guest Rooms, offering an even greater sense of luxury with additional comfort features as well as access to the personalised service of the Club InterContinental Lounge.

The 64 Club Guest Rooms have been totally recreated, including state of the art electronic room controls which include the curtains (operated by the touch of a button while still in bed), digital lighting, air conditioning/heating and frosting of the glass in the shower windows.

One of the outstanding features of Wellington is the harbour and its interaction with the landscape and people. The new Club InterContinental Lounge takes advantage of the hotel’s position, spanning the total width of the hotel and overlooking the whole harbour with truly stunning views, day and night.

Complementing the views and enhancing the ambience of luxurious comfort, the Lounge features three cuisine occasions during each day: The Club InterContinental chef prepares a hot and cold buffet breakfast, afternoon tea of sweet and savoury treats, all-day barista coffee, and twilight drinks with canapés, served with a selection of the finest crafted beers and New Zealand wines.

The final stage of the hotel’s remodel is a total refurbishment of The Lobby Lounge, Chameleon Restaurant and meeting rooms. A new sense of arrival will be created within a redesigned reception supported by the Concierge team’s wealth of local insights.

The new-look InterContinental Wellington is scheduled to be completed by end of August this year.
