“We are excited to open New Zealand’s flagship Holiday Inn hotel and showcase the brand’s next-generation open lobby design, which will set the new standard for Holiday Inn properties across Australasia.

“For family, active leisure and business travellers, we believe there’s no better full-service hotel that offers affordable accommodation, that genuinely and conveniently connects you with the awe-inspiring beauty of Queenstown’s snow-capped mountains, rugged trails, river canyons and vineyards.

“We look forward to contributing to the ongoing success of the Remarkables Park lifestyle development and welcoming our first guests to the hotel this December,” concluded Simister.
