And in the evenings, guests can choose from a drink in the Great Room or head up to the neighbouring voco Auckland City Centre for Italian at Mozzarella & Co. or cocktails at the rooftop bar, Bar Albert on Level 38 (opening early August).

As one of IHG’s fastest growing hotel brands, Holiday Inn Express is well-loved for its approach to simple, smart travel. The brand’s much-loved perks will be on offer in Auckland, with business travellers able to appreciate the fast check-in and unlimited fast WiFi as well as the three flexible meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 40 people.

Holiday Inn Express Auckland City Centre’s strong commitment to sustainability means it is on track to achieve Green Engage Certification. In addition, the hotel is committed to using energy efficient equipment and systems throughout the property and chooses not to use single use plastics, using bulk amenities instead of one-time use disposable bathroom amenities.

Continuously looking to reduce its environmental footprint, the hotel also offers ‘A Greener Stay’ initiative, which gives guests the option of reducing their environmental footprint when staying two or more nights by opting out of housekeeping services helping to save energy, water use and waste output.

Holiday Inn Express Auckland City Centre is a joint partnership between Pro-invest Hotels and IHG Hotels & Resorts.
