New Eco-Friendly Hotel Joins Choice Hotels

New Eco-Friendly Hotel Joins Choice Hotels

Choice Hotels are excited to welcome a newly built eco-friendly Clarion hotel to their accommodation offering in Hamilton.

Clarion Suites Ambassador has been designed and built to ensure minimal environmental impact. Every detail of the property has been carefully considered to create a property that is a market leader in eco-friendly accommodation.

The property features 16 luxurious self-contained studio suites, each of which are linked to the state of the art self-sufficient water system. The system is designed to collect rainwater that goes through a filtration and purification process. The water is heated by solar powered boilers and fed directly to the rooms to provide an endless hot and cold water supply.

The solar roof panels are also used to power in-room radiators and heated towel rails. Wastewater is filtered out to a new tank that then feeds the sprinkler system in the property’s gardens.

LED lighting, double cladding and insulation throughout the property ensures the energy efficiency of Clarion Suites Ambassador is first class.

Clarion Suites Ambassador is conveniently located in the heart of Hamilton City, within short walking distance of Waikato Stadium and only 20 minutes from Hamilton Airport.

The hotel boasts an impressive list of facilities including a large outdoor pool, hot tub and BBQ area. Guests of Clarion Suites Ambassador are able to use the covered car park garage, complimentary Wi-Fi, Sky Guest Select TV and the Fitness Centre.

Also available onsite is the licensed Club Lounge Café and Bar and three meeting and function spaces, including the new Clarion boardroom with capacity for up to 20 delegates.

Each of the suites sets a new standard in luxury with quality linens and furnishings, plush carpets and double tracked curtains for the utmost privacy. Suites are self-contained with a modern fully equipped kitchen, a washer, dryer and dish drawer to provide a true home away from home.

Each suite is equipped with Eco Pure guest amenities and can be configured to a choice of either King or Twin bedding.

Choice Hotels Australasia’s CEO, Trent Fraser, Trent Fraser, says the hotel franchisor is thrilled to have this exciting new build on board.

“The owners have considered every detail throughout the development of this exceptional luxurious property,” says Fraser. “The state of the art systems and technology at Clarion Suites Ambassador ensure this will be a leading eco-friendly hotel.”

Clarion Suites Ambassador is owned and operated under the same management as the adjoining Quality Hotel Ambassador.
