Accor has signed its third hotel agreement with Sarin Hotels to open a second The Sebel hotel in Wellington.

The nine-storey serviced apartment Sebel Wellington Thorndon hotel is next to Wellington’s Sky Stadium.

The Sebel Wellington Thorndon is the third hotel that Sarin Hotels has partnered with Accor on in New Zealand, following the success of ibis Styles Invercargill and The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt.

Family business partnership

Sarin Hotels is a family owned company which specialises in hotel and events centre ownership and management.

Sarin Hotels CEO Udai Sarin said “We are excited about the opportunity to once again collaborate with Accor. The partnership allows us to bring a new level of sophistication to the heart of the city, enhancing our guests’ experience with the exceptional standards that Accor is well known for.

“The union of our local expertise and international support system means our customers can also take advantage of Accor’s global distribution and loyalty network, creating a distinctive offering that caters to both leisure and business travellers.”

Accor Pacific CEO Sarah Derry said the new hotel is a sign of continued expansion for the hotel group’s portfolio of brands in New Zealand.
