Accor’s TRIBE hotel prepares for grand entrance in New Zealand

TRIBE, the design-led midscale brand by Accor, is counting down the days until its New Zealand launch.

On track to open its doors this summer, TRIBE Auckland Fort Street will become the brand’s first address in the country, serving as a stylish destination where guests and locals can work, play, and relax with a like-minded community of entrepreneurs and adventurous travellers.

Located on Fort Street, just a stone’s throw from central Britomart and the Commercial Bay precinct, the hotel will bring a bold design edit to Auckland’s hotel scene with 60 compact but ultra-comfy guestrooms featuring the latest technologies, a lobby bar, terrace, and social hub.

Accor says TRIBE Auckland Fort Street will prioritise intelligent, functional, design-driven spaces that ‘ give guests everything they need and nothing they don’t.’ As a design-driven hotel, common areas have been designed as a focal point with iconic design objects, contrasting colours, and surprising details that are selected with comfort and style in mind.

Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer PM&E, Adrian Williams, says, “The introduction of TRIBE to New Zealand underpins our expansion strategy throughout the region – to introduce brands and hotels that respond to the needs and wants of modern travellers.

“Today’s travellers seek simplicity, affordability, and connectivity in a design-led environment. They know that comfort and fair prices can co-exist and that’s exactly what TRIBE hotels offer — spaces that are smart, stylish and comfortable, at a great price.

“We are excited to partner with CP Group to introduce this one-of-a-kind concept to New Zealand with TRIBE Auckland Fort Street. With its bold personality and socially connected culture, the hotel will become a hub that excites and inspires both travellers and locals.

“We know that TRIBE will resonate both with domestic and international guests in New Zealand and look forward to debuting the brand’s first address here.”

CP Group said: “TRIBE Auckland Fort Street will be a new kind of hotel that offers not just accommodation but also acts as a social destination and collaborative space.”
