Accor adds to NZ hotel scene

Opening in mid-2021, Accor’s new-build, The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt, will overlook the Hutt River, a short drive from Wellington International Airport.

Built in partnership with Hutt City Council’s project for the New Civic Centre, which includes a new 800-seater Events Centre adjoining the city’s historic Town Hall, the apartment-style hotel boasts 60 fully serviced studios and one bedroom apartments.

It will provide a modern and convenient place for business and leisure visitors to stay while attending conferences, exhibitions or events. Complete with a restaurant and bar, Biscotti, this new hotel is designed to ’embrace The Sebel brand standards’, with warm, stylish and homely furnishings to make guests feel welcome

Meanwhile the Mercure Auckland Queen Street is a 96-room hotel spanning eight stories. The hotel, which is expected to open its doors to guests in late quarter one 2021, will also feature a restaurant with street frontage and a boardroom, and is located at the top-end of Queen Street. The building is evolving from an office conversion, and will find new life as a hotel .
