Wyndham Hotel Group today announced its third “Ramada Suites” complex in Auckland. It is the company’s twelfth property in New Zealand.
The $70 million dollar hotel features 47-rooms above the historic Cambridge clothing factory ,on the corner of 147 Victoria St West and Graham St and is due to be complete in late 2018.
Local developer Safari Group said it was working with a conservation architect and Heritage New Zealand to “appropriately retain the important historic appeal of the site”.
“Gaining the necessary approvals for our vision required hard work and thorough planning, and we believe the end result will be something that guests will value and the public will see as a respectful and attractive merging of historic and modern Auckland,” said Safari Group director Robert Neil.
Wyndham Hotel Group president& managing director Barry Robinson said Auckland had strong growth and development thanks to rising visitor numbers.
“This is driving increased interest from developers for globally known brands like Ramada and others offered by Wyndham Hotel Group, which are well positioned to meet the emerging needs of travellers in the region,” Robinson said.
“New Zealand is a key region of focus for Wyndham Hotel Group and to help meet growing demand, we have established a strong partnership with the Safari Group which has opened four hotels throughout the country, and two more in the pipeline.”
