AccorHotels has announced that it has entered into a franchise agreement for the Hotel Grand Windsor in Auckland, effective October 2017. The property will join the group’s upscale MGallery by Sofitel brand, renowned for its unique interior design and personalised guest service.

Located on Queen Street in the heart of Auckland’s luxury boutique neighbourhood, the heritage listed hotel, which is owned by CP Group and managed by its in-house hotel chain CPG Hotels, is currently undergoing extensive works. The renovations will highlight the property’s original 1920s art-deco features and deliver a new level of sophistication to guests.

The design of the boutique property’s refurbished 69 guest rooms and 10 suites, spanning across eight levels, are inspired by Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor’s famous jewellery collection. Each will reflect one of four signature gemstone colours including emerald, aquamarine, amethyst and tourmaline. Once complete, the hotel will also feature a restaurant, lobby lounge, bar, wellness centre and meeting facilities, in addition to the guest rooms whose refurbishment were completed in June 2017.

AccorHotels Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath, said the hotel would be a unique addition to the MGallery by Sofitel offering in New Zealand.

“We are delighted to welcome the Hotel Grand Windsor to our portfolio. Auckland is a thriving city, which particularly appeals to the leisure market who are calling for unique experiences with a focus on style.

“Through the MGallery by Sofitel brand AccorHotels offers guests accommodation and dining experiences that bring to life the history of their surrounds. The Hotel Grand Windsor in Auckland is no exception, and the building itself is particularly rich in history dating back to 1928.

“The hotel’s new MGallery by Sofitel signature will include memorable features such as high tea and other dishes with a twist in celebration of the bygone era in which the hotel was created.”

Once open, Hotel Grand Windsor MGallery by Sofitel will be the second MGallery property in New Zealand.

MGallery by Sofitel has 90 existing fascinating addresses in addition to 30 others under development. Each hotel is inspiring, enhance local discovery and shapes memorable moments. With a compelling mix of Heritage, Serenity and Signature hotels, each MGallery is original with its own story to tell. MGallery will expand its collection with captivating new hotels in the coming months including MGallery Leicester Square in London, UK; MGallery Doha, Qatar; MGallery Dubai in the UAE; MGallery Livorno, Italy; and MGallery Istanbul, Turkey.
