IHG’s Hotel Indigo brand is to add its first property in New Zealand, within a new-build development which will be one of the tallest buildings in the city.
Hotel Indigo Auckland is set to open in 2021, and will feature 225 rooms, an all-day dining restaurant and bar, meeting space and a gym.
The mixed use development will rise from the façade of an original historic building on Albert Street, and according to IHG the majority of the rooms “will offer stunning views of the city and Auckland’s iconic harbour”.
The hotel will be the brand’s fifth signing in Australasia, joining forthcoming properties in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
Commenting on the news Dean Rzechta, managing director of the property’s developers Ninety Four Feet, said:
“Auckland is becoming recognised as one of the world’s key gateway cities, and is consistently one of the top ten most liveable in the world. Its rich arts and culture scene makes it a great fit for a boutique brand, and we can’t think of a better match than Hotel Indigo.
“This development is destined to become an iconic landmark on the Auckland landscape, and with robust tourism arrivals and unprecedented demand we are confident that Hotel Indigo Auckland will be a story of success.”
