Wyndham Hotel Group's First Property in Auckland Opens Doors
November 04, 2015 // Franchising.com // AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – Travellers visiting Auckland can now rest comfortably at the city’s much-anticipated new hotel, the four-star Ramada Suites Auckland Federal Street, which is now open as Wyndham Hotel Group’s first property in New Zealand’s largest urban area.
Ramada Suites Auckland Federal Street is conveniently situated in the city’s central business district (CBD), located just 30 minutes from Auckland Airport and close to popular attractions like Aotea Square, Sky Tower and SKYCITY, and the Britomart precinct, as well as the area’s major businesses.
Barry Robinson, Wyndham Hotel Group’s president and managing director South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said the addition helps address the increasing demand for new, quality-driven accommodation in Auckland’s CBD.
“The Auckland area has long been a gateway to New Zealand and the most visited destination, welcoming more than 70 percent of the country’s visitors,” said Robinson. “The World Tourism Organisation (WTO) predicts visitor arrivals will reach more than 1.5 billion by 2020 and our new Ramada location will deliver to these travelers a contemporary, value-driven lodging experience with the comforts of home in the heart of the city.”
The new-construction, boutique-style hotel offers a mix of 42 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments with impressive city views, contemporary décor, kitchens, washing machines and dryers. Additional hotel features include unlimited free Wi-Fi access throughout the property, an on-site restaurant and bar, and parking.
Wyndham Hotel Group currently has three Ramada® hotels open and operating in the country, including a new location in Christchurch which opened in February of this year.
