Hilton launches Tapestry Collection in New Zealand

Hilton’s Tapestry Collection is making its Australasian debut in Christchurch.

The Modern Christchurch, Tapestry Collection by Hilton is slated to open in the third quarter of 2021.

Launched globally in 2017, Tapestry Collection by Hilton is a collection of more than 20 upscale hotels, each with its own unique style and vibrant personality.

“We are delighted to announce the entry of Tapestry Collection by Hilton into the Australasian market with the signing of The Modern,” said Sean Wooden, vice president, brand management, Asia Pacific.

“As New Zealand’s second largest city and the gateway to the country’s magnificent South Island, we are confident that the unique Tapestry Collection by Hilton brand ethos and The Modern’s stylish and design-led offering will be embraced by both business and leisure travellers alike.”

Located in the heart of Christchurch’s CBD at 79 Hereford Street, contemporary art will be a cornerstone of The Modern experience, with large-scale prints by significant Christchurch and New Zealand artists adorning the walls of each room.

The property will also incorporate a ground floor restaurant and bar, fitness centre, and on-site parking.

“It has been wonderful to once again partner with Sarin Investments and Tailorspace Limited on what will be an outstanding addition to our current portfolio of hotels across the region,” said Rob Scullin, vice president development, Australasia.

“Hilton presently has two other franchise agreements with Sarin Investments for DoubleTree by Hilton Wellington and DoubleTree by Hilton Napier Hotel & Suites, which is projected to open in the first quarter of 2020.”
