Distinction Hotel opens in Christchurch

14 March 2018

New Zealand owned and operated Distinction Hotels Group is pleased to announce the opening of Distinction Christchurch Hotel.

The newly renovated hotel is an urban escape combining sophisticated smarts and familiar warmth, whilst standing proud amongst the buzz of the rejuvenation of Cathedral Square.

The 4.5-star hotel is ideally positioned in the heart of the city only a few minutes' walk from the Avon River, Botanical Gardens, Christchurch Casino, Cashel Mall and future Christchurch Convention Centre.

Offering 179 elegant, air-conditioned hotel rooms including 3 floors of brand new Superior Rooms and Suites outfitted with the latest technology including flat screen Smart TVs and free unlimited WiFi.

Designed to suit everyone from business travellers requiring spacious, contemporary accommodation to those travellers seeking a place to relax and unwind after a day exploring Canterbury’s vibrant attractions.

Distinction Hotels Chief Executive Duncan Fletcher said it was a privilege to open Distinction Christchurch Hotel and contribute to another milestone in the regeneration of the central city.

“We anticipate the convenient location will serve as a popular haven for both international and domestic travellers whilst also attracting strong corporate business mid-week.

"We anticipate this corporate market will be enhanced further once the new Christchurch Convention Centre is completed in 2020,” he said.

Complementing this new accommodation are conference facilities catering up to 200 delegates, the stylish Gumption Restaurant & Bar, undercover valet parking and soon to be completed gym and sauna.
