An extra 250 rooms for Cordis, Auckland set come online by 2020
Set to be completed by late 2020, the new tower adjacent and connected to the existing hotel will house an additional 250 premium rooms and Cordis signature suites, bringing a combined total of 650 rooms and suites.
The size of the new rooms will start from 32 square metres and the brand new Club Lounge will feature panoramic views of the harbour and Auckland Tower.
The hotel currently has event space in excess of 2000 square metres, including the Great Room which is one of New Zealand’s largest pillar-less ballrooms.
There are plans to add a new event space of approximately 400 square metres that will offer natural light and multiple configurations, allowing for more flexibility in hosting special occasions and key events.
“The successful repositioning of Cordis, Auckland combined with the economic growth and positive tourism outlook in New Zealand makes us confident that this is the right time for the owner of the hotel to commit its financial resources for the expansion of the hotel,” said Simon Manning, chief sales and marketing officer of Langham Hospitality Group.
“On a broader outlook, with New Zealand’s International Convention Centre scheduled to open in 2020, Cordis, Auckland’s enhanced facilities and increased inventory will be in a strong position to support the country’s development of the robust conventions and events sector.”
