    Hotel description

    A stylish and contemporary hotel, the Intercontinental Wellington is the only internationally recognised five star hotel in the capital. Located adjacent to Wellington’s harbour, the Intercontinental has the city’s main shopping districts and botanical gardens on its doorstep, as well as a close proximity to the Events Centre and the Queen’s Wharf waterfront. There are 231 rooms and 7 suites, many of which have views over the city. The hotel boasts two restaurants, the award-winning Chameleon Restaurant, serving contemporary New Zealand cuisine and the more informal Arizona Bar and Grill. The Emerge Health Club within the hotel has a large heated swimming pool, 24 hour gym, Jacuzzi-spa and sauna and spa treatments and massages can also be arranged. The hotel is a great base from which to explore the city of Wellington as many of the attractions are located close by. The Te Papa museum of New Zealand, City gallery and Parliament buildings are all within walking distance, as well as the harbour itself.
