Industrial chic shows the way on the Auckland waterfront


When a new hotel is promoted as offering a "rock star lifestyle without the hefty price tag" then expectations are going to be high. 

When that new hotel is centre stage in Auckland’s up-and-coming, industrial-chic waterfront precinct then it had better deliver. 

TFE Hotels’ opened Travelodge Hotel Auckland Wynyard Quarter at the end of October, promising a simple customer service philosophy: delivering "more of what you want, minus the unnecessary extras".

The new hotel is footsteps from the city’s buzzing ASB Waterfront Theatre; superyachts; Auckland’s working fish market; zen Silo Park and North Wharf’s funky cafes, breweries and bars. 

It is just a stone’s throw from where the world’s yachting elite will descend to contest events in the lead-up to the 36th edition of the America’s Cup in March. 

Travelodge Wynyard Quarter Hotel General Manager Nick Mannion said: “Team New Zealand’s base is just up the street – you’re talking maybe 500 metres from the hotel’s door. 

“That will definitely be a big drawcard for hotel guests, placing them at the epicentre of the action.”

Located on the corner of Halsey and Packenham streets, the seven-storey, 154-room hotel is the first of six new buildings under development as part of a mixed-use commercial/residential block owned by transport and infrastructure investor Infratil.

It features a sawtooth roof and stunning patchwork fa├žade of exposed steel, glass and concrete panels.
