This follows IHG signing an agreement with Ninety Four Feet, an Australasian property development, investment, and construction company, to open Hotel Indigo Auckland. No two Hotel Indigo properties are the same, with each drawing on its local area for character. The City of Sails will set the backdrop for this hotel, and the operation will draw on local artists for its design, service, amenities, food and beverages. The 225-room hotel in Albert Street will be part of a mixed-use development in an Auckland Central location, including food and beverage and residential components.
The new build development will be among Auckland’s tallest buildings, maintaining the façade of the original historic building with a new world-class hotel blended elegantly around it. The hotel will feature its own all-day dining and bar, meeting space and gym, and a majority of hotel rooms will offer stunning views of the city and Auckland's iconic harbour. It will have easy access to Sky Tower, new NZ International Convention Centre, SKYCITY Casino, CBD offoce buildings, and entertainment precinct of Britomart and Viaduct.
