Three New Properties Boost Choice Hotels NZ Offering

Three New Properties Boost Choice Hotels New Zealand Offering

Choice Hotels has three great new properties in its New Zealand portfolio, extending the variety and location of accommodation options on offer throughout the hotel group’s brands.

Quality Hotel Lincoln Green, Henderson, Auckland is ideally situated just 15 km from Auckland City, handy to the motorway and with easy access to local shopping malls, wineries, bush walks and the beautiful West Coast beaches.

A great range of room options include standard and superior twins, premium, queen and king room, all with high speed internet access. Onsite ‘Icon’ Restaurant and ‘Bar 159’ and a guest kitchen cover all catering requirements, while the versatile conference and function centre makes the Quality Hotel Lincoln Green a great choice for corporate hosting.

Comfort Inn & Suites Kudos in Mangere, Auckland offers the latest luxurious apartment-style accommodation with spacious serviced apartments providing superior facilities in a delightful environment. Close to the airport but still handy to Auckland City, the apartments are ideal for both short and long term visits.

Highlights include spacious two-bedroom apartments, dining rooms and living areas and well-equipped kitchenette and laundry facilities. Guests can also benefit from free broadband internet, free continental breakfast and on-site parking.

Econo Lodge Westshore Beach in Napier is the first Econo Lodge accommodation in the North Island. Located just 50 metres from the Westshore Beach and a 5 minute drive to the downtown Art Deco district, the property offers two bedroom chalets and studio rooms with on site bistro and parking.

This Econo Lodge is the closest accommodation to the Napier airport. The link road to Hawke’s Bay’s famous wineries is only 150 metres away, making it the ideal base for tourists and wine lovers alike.

Trent Fraser, General Manager Franchise Services & Development, says the new acquisitions take the number of Choice Hotel properties to 38 across New Zealand

“We are delighted to extend the accommodation options for our customers in these three handy locations. Bringing the Econo Lodge brand to the North Island is something we have been keen to do for a long time. We have plans to provide further affordable, accommodation offerings under the Econo Lodge banner in future.”
