Phase 1 of the Sudima Christchurch Hotel refurbishment will begin 1 September 2013. A brand new Washington Wing will be built, as well as the temporrary relocation and rebuild of reception will take place until October 2014. This will temporarily take current hotel inventory down to 159 rooms.
Every effort is being made by the hotel to reduce any inconvenience to guests during this period and ensure that visitors continue to enjoy a satisfying experience. Work will take place between the hours of 8am and 6pm, heavy machinery will only be used from September to June, false walls will be erected to cushion noise levels and dust throughout the hotel and contractors will have minimal access to hotel public areas. Hotel pool facilities will be indefinitely closed from 1 September 2013.
Upon completion in 2015, Sudima Christchurch Hotel will have increased their inventory by 38 rooms to 246.
