Travelodge Wellington re-opened its doors yesterday (Jun 1), following a multi-million dollar refurbishment.
It’s all smiles at Travelodge Wellington
The centrally located Gilmer Terrace hotel is the second Travelodge in New Zealand with its sister property, Travelodge Palmerston North, opening a year ago and to celebrate the re-opening, the Wellington property is offering a special of $112 (NZD$140) per room per night including breakfast for two people.
The new look Travelodge Wellington has been eight months in the making and its $8.8 million (NZD$11 million) transformation now makes the 132 room hotel one of the leading 3.5- to 4-star hotels in the city.
“The hotel is in a prime location in the centre of Wellington’s financial and shopping hub, yet close to key attractions such as Wellington Zoo, the Wellington Cable Car and Te Papa Museum of New Zealand, it is also only a five minute walk from the harbour,” said Shaarn Letele, Hotel Manager, Travelodge Wellington.
The rooms were completely revamped, from light fittings to security cards and new LCD televisions, while the hotel’s foyer was transformed and saw the addition of a café.
The conference rooms have also been given a face lift, making Travelodge Wellington an ideal venue for small to medium sized conferences for up to 100 delegates.
“The new-look Travelodge Wellington offers guests a fresh and modern accommodation choice in centre of the city. The friendly and efficient service of the Travelodge Wellington team will make this hotel a smart choice for value conscious business and leisure travellers,” said Letele.
The opening special is valid until September 30, 2009.
