The 352-room Crowne Plaza Auckland has launched three new packages – Mostly Energised, Mostly Inspired and Mostly Social – to ensure downtime is as productive as work time.
The hotel’s general manager Tim Pollock believes that the packages tie in perfectly with meetings and conference business.
“We want delegates to stay the night and enjoy everything Auckland has to offer. Whether they want to stay active in the city, be social or relax with a massage at the end of the day, we have all bases covered,” he said.
To help guests do just that, the hotel’s created an online guide to Auckland business travel featuring ‘must do’ activities for their downtime, dining hotspots and teambuilding exercises around the city.
In addition, the property launched a video campaign to take bookers on a visual journey of the hotel, and offer inspiration on what can be done in its event spaces.
For instance, Crowne Plaza Auckland’s newest gala dinner package offers guests a unique welcome and insight into some of Aotearoa’s culture including a 15-minute Māori welcome, a New Zealand-themed buffet and Aotearoa-inspired decorations, along with inclusions such as stage and dance floor hire.
Meeting facilities in the hotel include 10 function rooms catering for everything from an executive boardroom meeting for 12 to a presentation or gala event for up to 460 guests.
All meeting and conference rooms are fully equipped with modern sound and visual systems, complimentary Wi-Fi and projectors. The hotel’s audio-visual specialists supply all the presentation needs from a data projector to staged events and widescreen presentations.
