Sofitel open in Wellington, New Zealand.

Sofitel has opened Wellington, New Zealand’s first international five-star hotel in more than a decade.

Located on The Terrace, Sofitel Wellington features 14 storeys and 129 rooms and suites.

The $NZ51 million development is the third Sofitel hotel in New Zealand, joining the Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour and Sofitel Queenstown  Hotel and Spa.

Sitting between two of Wellington’s iconic landmarks, the Botanical Gardens and the executive wing of the New Zealand Parliament buildings commonly known as ‘The Beehive’ the hotel boasts suites in vintage gold and bronze tones and complimentary wifi for multiple devices.

It also has a gymnasium, the Jardin Grill restaurant and state-of-the-art technology in three meeting and event venues.

Chris Sedgwick, from AccorHotels, said the Sofitel Wellington would help elevate the city’s international profile and appeal as a leisure and business destination.
