Following its stint as a quarantine hotel, Four Points by Sheraton, Auckland has revamped all of its rooms and suites alongside its public and meeting spaces, reopening for normal operations last Friday.
All 255 accommodation rooms received new fixtures and fittings, new paint and new bed linen.
Public and meeting spaces were recarpeted and repainted and there was a full replacement of all air filters and ducts.
The property’s gin and cocktail rooftop bar, The Churchill, one of the highest in the city, was redecorated and has opened with a new menu.
“The team are fired up and ready to welcome our valued guests from around the world back to Four Points by Sheraton, Auckland,” said general manager Paul Gallop.
“Following an extensive refresh of the entire property, we are delighted to return to our usual operations providing business and leisure travellers with the timeless style and comfort along with the anticipatory first-class service that Four Points is renowned for.”
Gallop said there had also been a focus on ensuring the hotel’s team were ready to go as the hotel reopens.
“During the pandemic disruptions, Marriott International placed a key focus on growing and developing all Associates across the business offering learning and development programs to ensure the teams are equipped to welcome guests as business operations restart.
“We are all very much looking forward to welcoming back guests.”
As an MIQ hotel, Four Points by Sheraton, Auckland accommodated more than 6,500 New Zealanders returning home during the first two years of the pandemic.
