Hamilton’s tallest building will be transformed into a $100 million, 191-room premium Pullman Hotel with work already under way to retrofit the Mistry Centre at 42-48 Ward St.

Accor Pacific chief operating officer PM&E, Adrian Williams, is thrilled that Accor will be the operator of such a landmark project for Hamilton City. 

“This hotel will elevate the style and sophistication of the popular North Island destination of  Hamilton. The international brand recognition of Pullman will aid in attracting tourists and  conferences to the city, enhancing its profile on the global stage.

“Pullman Hamilton will cater to a wide range of travellers, including families, couples and business  leaders looking for a world-class stay in one of the country’s most attractive tourist destinations.

“The hotel will not only offer leisure and business guests a sophisticated accommodation experience, but the local economy will also benefit through employment, supplier partnerships and added  economic development that will come with increased visitors to the region,” says Williams.

Hamilton and Waikato Tourism chief executive Nicola Greenwell said the opening date of 2026 was “cause for celebration”.

“We have been advocating for more accommodation in the city for a long time,” Greenwell said.

“A new high-quality hotel will help attract more leisure and business travellers to the city.”
