voco brand heading to Auckland in 2021 

IHG brand voco is heading to New Zealand, with voco Auckland City Centre set to open in 2021.

The property was originally announced as an EVEN Hotel in 2017, however following IHG’s launch of voco in 2018, it was decided the brand would be a better fit.

voco Auckland City Centre will offer 200 guest rooms, an all-day restaurant and bar, and guest gym.

Located at the corner of Albert and Wyndham Street, voco Auckland City Centre will be dual-branded, sharing its site with the 294-room Holiday Inn Express Auckland City Centre. The two hotels will have separate branding and guest entrances, but will share facilities to provide a better guest experience.

“With the momentum voco has created since its launch, we are delighted that Pro-invest has taken the opportunity to realign their EVEN project with the new sustainability-focused voco brand,” said Leanne Harwood, IHG’s managing director – Australasia & Japan.

“It’s wonderful to continue this journey with Pro-invest as they bring our sixth voco to Australasia in the very heart of the Auckland CBD.”
