Who could have guessed, another new Hotel for Auckland and we have a sneaky suspicion that this won't be the last time that we hear of new hotels sprouting up across Greater Auckland. It was recently reported that Auckland is in dire need of guest rooms for the Rugby World Cup 2011 and we have to agree that Auckland Airport definitely needs a hotel, this project is long overdue. Here are all the details:
Tainui Group Holdings has this morning confirmed speculation it will build a new hotel at Auckland International Airport. An agreement has been announced between the airport and the tribe together with Accor Hospitality.The 263-room, twelve storey Novotel property will be completed in time for the Rugby World Cup.The 14,000sq m hotel designed by Warren and Mahoney will be adjacent to the airport’s international terminal and constructed to a height of 52 metres. It will be Accor’s 30th hotel in New Zealand.
