On November 1, The Langham Auckland, one of New Zealand’s leading hotels will be rebranded as Cordis, Auckland.
Cordis Hotels and Resorts is a new generation of selected modern hotels by Langham Hospitality Group catering to both business and leisure travellers.
“Our hotel in Auckland fits the Cordis brand perfectly,” said Robert Warman, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group. “It is well located in the vibrant part of the city, a top-of-mind venue for meetings and events, a favourite for special occasions amongst the locals, and we have experienced colleagues who provide warm and friendly service from the heart.”
“The addition of Cordis, Auckland to our portfolio is a significant milestone for the group as it will be the first Cordis hotel in the Pacific. Our plan is to introduce and grow the Cordis brand in this region, which is seeing increasing numbers of leisure and corporate travellers year on year. Each Cordis is individual in style, architecture and design, all of which will be reflective of its location, local culture and is tailored to the requirements of our guests, from corporate travellers, honeymooners and families,” added Mr Warman.
Franz Mascarenhas, managing director of The Langham, Auckland said: “I am confident Cordis, Auckland will succeed and continue to be the social centre of Auckland, hosting major events, conferences, international delegations and the city’s most glamorous weddings. We look forward to the continued support of the local community.”
Following the recent renovation of the banquet venues and the hotel’s Eight restaurant, The Langham Auckland is currently refurbishing all 411 rooms and suites, lobby lounge and the exclusive Club Lounge. The facelift is scheduled to be completed by Feb 2018.
In terms of design, guests may expect contemporary rooms and spaces that are reflective of the Cordis brand and local culture. The award-winning New Zealand based design firm, Space Studio, is the appointed interior designer for this refurbishment project.
