Choice Hotels partners with Auckland Metropolis

Choice Hotels has added the signature Metropolis hotel to its luxury accommodation offering in the heart of Auckland city.

Metropolis – Clarion Collection puts the jewel in the crown of Choice Hotels’ five-star Clarion Collection properties in New Zealand. The unique and elegant property encompasses the historic 1912 Baroque-style Magistrates Court building which houses the hotel’s foyer and access to the 38-story luxury accommodation.

Located in the hub of Auckland’s central business district, Metropolis – Clarion Collection delivers spectacular views across the city to the harbour and beyond, and is surrounded by a diverse range of shopping, dining and entertainment options including the new Britomart precinct.

It is an easy walk to the Viaduct Harbour centre and the recently developed Wynyard Quarter area. There are also a number of cafés and restaurants within the Metropolis retail levels.

The hotel offers 60 spacious apartment-style guest rooms and suites featuring elegant décor and contemporary furnishings, with full kitchen, laundry and entertainment facilities. The stunning penthouse suite, complete with floor to ceiling windows, provides the city’s best views out to the islands of the Hauraki Gulf.

Choice Hotels’ General Manager Sales and Marketing, Aileen Cobern says it is rare to find a property that meets the criteria of the luxury brand Clarion Collection brand and the Metropolis – Clarion Collection fits the bill perfectly.

“We are absolutely delighted to be able to add this unique property to our accommodation offering for new and existing customers. It really is the ultimate location in Auckland city, close to everything including fabulous restaurant and shopping options, and with easy access to the northern and southern motorways,” she says.
