Pullman Auckland to house Fashion Week elite

The fashion industry’s most style conscious can look forward to Auckland’s newest five star hotel brand as their home away from home this August.

Pullman Auckland has been appointed the official hotel partner of New Zealand Fashion Week 2011, providing VIP guests and delegates a haven from the hustle and bustle of the Viaduct Events Centre.

General Manager Rob McIntyre says the hotel is thrilled to be a part of New Zealand’s premier fashion event.

“Pullman Hotels worldwide are renowned for innovative and creative provision of services. As the first Pullman in New Zealand, we believe a partnership with the country’s fashion elite is a natural fit for us.

“Our hotel is redefining the lifestyle of modern day travellers. We provide upscale and professional business facilities, which I know will be appreciated by national and international Fashion Week delegates,” says McIntyre.

For those who want to kick up their heels at the end of a long day, Pullman’s impeccably stylish bar is a place to socialise and the award-winning Spa, the ultimate place to relax and unwind.

“I look forward to presenting a service over and above that attainable elsewhere for our Fashion Week guests. Our hotel provides the perfect sanctuary and ambiance to work, relax and play.

“Those who may be concerned about teetering down High street in their heels need not fear - there is a car service running between Pullman Auckland and the Viaduct Events Centre throughout the week,” says McIntyre.

New Zealand Fashion Week takes place from August 29 to September 3.
