Welcome To Wellington
Kia Ora koutou katoa. Greetings to you from InterContinental Wellington. The Concierge team would like to express their warmest regards and hope to ensure you have a memorable stay. If you require anything during your stay, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Hotel has internationally recognised active member of Les Clefs d'Or, Jason Eade the chief Concierge, who along with his experienced team will look after you throughout your stay at InterContinental Wellington. The Concierge desk is attended from 0700am till 2330 with one of the team able to assist with all your needs from parking the car, booking restaruants, to developing a tour specific to your needs that allows you to explore the New Zealand capital.
Wake up to a complimentary coffee and then head to the ground floor to Chameleon Restaurant for a full buffet breakfast. Take a short walk through the heart of the city to Wellington's iconic Cable Car; at the top is the expansive Botanical Gardens, the Carter Observatory and a fantastic view across Wellington just next to the Cable Car museum. After enjoying a relaxed stroll around the gardens travel back down with the Cable Car and head through the shopping precinct towards Cuba Mall to enjoy morning tea in one of Wellingtons 'coffee culture' cafes.
Visit New Zealand's national museum Te Papa Tongarewa and explore a splendid display of New Zealand's history. Take your time to discover this country's secrets and then enjoy lunch at the museum's cafe. Wellington is small enough for you to explore in detail - walk along Cuba Street Mall, Willis St and Lambton Quay to take in the town's shopping districts. Wellington's residents are friendly and laid back, so feel free to ask people if you get lost or just have a question. Late in the afternoon, take a leisurely walk to ZEALANDIA Wildlife Sanctuary, just 40 minutes from the hotel. The scenery is beautiful; like being in a secluded forest.... and if you take the dusk tour, you might even see the nocturnal kiwi in native habitat.
As Wellington is a hilly place, the city has many wonderful vantage points from which to view the town. At night, when the sun sets in the hills, see the handsome scenery from the White House restaurant in Oriental Parade. With the delicate lighting of our beautiful habour town before your eyes, try the delicious duck for something a little bit different. After dinner, head to Courtney Place, which is alive with hip bars. Check out C.R.G. Merchant Co. for a unique bar experience. Even in the midst of drinking, New Zealanders remain the most affable people who are easy to befriend, so don't count on your evening ending where it began.
