Hyatt's a Hot Topic

The new Park Hyatt Auckland being built in the city’s Wynyard Quarter was a hot topic at the AsiaPacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) mid February.
Due to open towards the middle of next year, the waterfront property will have 199 all-balcony rooms.
Area director of sales and marketing, Pacific at Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Kate Atkinson, says the lead-in rooms are large – 45sqm – and a welcoming thoroughfare in the middle of the looby will be inviting for the public.
‘There’ll be a restaurant and bar but obviously the hotel is located in a dining precinct so there will be plenty of choice for guests. The event space will include an open air roof top garden with retractable roof.’
Atkinson says New Zealand is a big focus for Hyatt – Auckland especially.
‘We know what the demand is. Auckland is an international destinaton and we are looking at the high-end visitor.
‘Hyatt has been actively looking at another New Zealand location but whether that is in Auckland or elsewhere, we are waiting for the right sport.’
