New Cordis Hotel

TIA Chief Executive Chris Roberts was one of the official ribbon-cutters for the new Cordis Hotel in Auckland (Wednesday 1 November 2018).

The former Langham Auckland is the third hotel in the chain to adopt the new five-star Cordis brand and is part-way through a $30 million refurbishment. The Langham Group is also looking at other investment opportunities in New Zealand.

Cordis is a new upper-scale brand of the Langham Hospitality Group, and the 411-room Auckland hotel will be its first in the Pacific region.

Cordis Managing Director Franz Mascarenhas told the NZ Herald the hotel would be 100% renovated", with all guest rooms, suites and lobby refurbished by February 2018.

New facilities and offerings include a new Cordis high tea and Cordis beers at the Lobby Lounge, and new room types. Free smartphone use, electric bike hire and a kids programme fronted by Cody, a red panda mascot, are also in store for guests.

Guests will be offered free use of smartphones to make free local calls and share their holiday highlights on social media.
