Horizon Hotel

SKYCITY has unveiled its new Auckland hotel, Horizon Hotel, being built alongside the New Zealand International Convention Centre. The five-star hotel is planned to open in 2019, bringing 303 new high-end rooms to the city centre.

“With such a buoyant tourism market and a huge pipeline of events coming to Auckland, including the opening of the NZICC, Horizon Hotel is well positioned to play an important role in supporting the city’s growth. It’s exciting to be at the forefront of that and we can’t wait to welcome both local and international visitors to Horizon Hotel.

“Along with its physical connection to the NZICC, the name ‘Horizon Hotel’ connects our guests to the purpose of their stay, as many of them will be here to expand their horizons through the knowledge and connections made during their conference,” said general manager of SKYCITY Hotels and Tower Brad Burnett.

Architect Gordon Moller designed the Horizon Hotel in association with Warren & Mahoney Architects. The hotel will feature floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Hauraki Gulf and Waitemata Harbour and Central Auckland. The rooms have a modern design with New Zealand-inspired materials and colours. Guests will enjoy outstanding facilities including a gym, keyless entry, a signature restaurant, lobby bar and café, and relaxing internal courtyard.

Earlier this month news broke that the New Zealand International Convention Centre was delayed a further six months on top of previous delays.
