Hilton Wellington Open July 1

DoubleTree by Hilton Wellington is opening July 1. Located in the heart of Wellington’s central business district, the four and a half-star hotel will have 108-rooms and come under the world-renowned DoubleTree by Hilton brand.

Hilton has long been considering its options in the capital. In 2008 it was tipped to build on the waterfront, and in 2014 proposed a five-star hotel, neither of which came to fruition.

The hotel stands in the Heritage New Zealand-listed Harcourts Building, built in 1928.
