AUCKLAND: Dreaming of an A-lister’s getaway or ‘Sweet As’ staycation to cheer on New Zealand’s record-breaking defence of the America’s Cup, but budget won’t stretch? Think again!
Travelodge Hotel Auckland Wynyard Quarter, which opened on October 30, delivers the ultimate win-win for super-savvy travellers – and locals – wanting a whole lot more for less.
First up, New Zealand’s second Travelodge (tag-teaming Wellington), boasts a million-dollar address, normally reserved for five-star properties, at the epicentre of this summer’s sizzling America’s Cup action. Guaranteed: a nail-biting season for sport-loving Kiwis as reigning champions, Team New Zealand – the first in history to challenge and win the oldest and most coveted sporting trophy on the planet, twice – attempt a record-breaking trifecta.
Best of all, Travelodge Wynyard Quarter shares the same street as Emirates Team New Zealand HQ (taking up residence in Auckland’s former Viaduct Events Centre at the end of Halsey Street), less than 500m from the hotel’s door. For sailing buffs, think 0.26 nautical miles. Priceless!
The mid-scale hotel’s price point is considerably less than five-star neighbours, thanks to its refreshingly simple customer service philosophy: ‘More of what you want, minus the unnecessary extras’.
Insider Tip: ‘Executive Rooms’ promise glimpses of Team New Zealand’s striking 75ft foiling monohulls, aka AC75s, built to defend the ‘the Auld Mug’.
The hotel shines as a ‘golden ticket’ for guests to rub shoulders with the world’s yachting elite, due to descend on the City of Sails, starting December, to contest events in the lead-up to the 36th showdown of the America’s Cup (March 2021).
What’s not to love about this property? It’s in a rock star location that will leave guests wanting for nothing, surrounded by an eclectic array of retail and F&B offerings that cater to every possible taste!
