The rooms at InterContinental range from their stylishly put-together Classic rooms to the more luxurious Executive rooms, to their award-winning Presidential Suite. Whichever room type you go with, you’re in for state-of-the-art technology including Bluetooth stereo, espresso machines and high-definition TV, complemented by the artful touch of a personalised wake-up service.
If you book a Club InterContinental room, you’re in for a treat. The club is another great example of this hotel’s approach sophisticated luxury. Settle back into a comfortable chair and enjoy the panoramic views overlooking the harbour as you enjoy a glass of local Martinborough pinot noir and something delicious to eat.
Award-winning Chameleon Restaurant located on the ground floor of the hotel will put to rest any preconceived idea of hotel restaurants.
Led by acclaimed chef de cuisine Paul Limacher, Chameleon is known for innovation and crafting dishes with global inspiration with a uniquely New Zealand flavour.
A greener stay
It starts with your paperless check-in and carries through to giving you the option to minimise the environmental footprint of your stay by reusing your towels and bypassing housekeeping to conserve resources and reduce waste.
Your leftover hotel soap will be put to good use through the Soap Aid project, which collects and reprocesses and delivers recycled soap to disadvantaged communities around the world.
Unwind with some retail or beauty therapy
Some of Wellington’s favourite shopping experiences are right on your doorstep (great for dropping off bags mid-way if you go a little over-the-top) including David Jones and Old Bank Arcade which both feature a great range of top New Zealand and international brands.
Afterwards, go unwind and de-stress with a treatment at Moroccan-inspired oasis Spa InterContinental or do some laps of the large, indoor, heated pool.
