NZ’s new flagship Holiday Inn Hotel debuts in Queenstown

A new build Holiday Inn Hotel is set to debut in Remarkables Park, Queenstown this December.

New Zealand’s first new-build Holiday Inn hotel in a decade, Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park, is set to make its opening debut in early December and unveil the first Holiday Inn ‘Open Lobby’ in New Zealand. A brand hallmark of the next-generation design for Holiday Inn hotels, open lobby transforms the traditional hotel lobby and separate eating areas into the one inviting, comfortable and energetic living space.

Mirroring a laid-back living room, open lobby offers guests a casual and flexible space to eat, drink, work, meet, relax, and socialise. Guests can move seamlessly between the fireplace, Giants restaurant and bar, media lounge, cosy seating areas, and E-Bar with plug-in power, Wi-Fi, and wireless printing. Open lobby is the beating heart of Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park. Here the expansive fireplace warmly invites guests to gather and taste a fine selection of Central Otago wines and craft beers from Giants Bar. Guests can marvel at the sun setting over Queenstown’s western peaks and settle into the evening with a board game or holiday reading in cosy, intimate seating areas.
