Three luxury junior suites have just been completed at Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel and were officially opened on November 18 by the U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, Scott Brown, in front of an audience of almost 100 invited guests. The three new suites have been built on the floor above the existing premier Remarkables Rooms; they all have views of the surrounding mountains, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Cecil Peak. In addition, they all overlook the Queenstown Recreational Ground.
The new suites have individual gas fireplaces and open balconies. They also have king-size beds, bathrooms with herring bone tiling and decor with an emphasis on sourcing Kiwi-made items.
The hotel holds a Qualmark five-star Boutique & Lodge grading, which is the highest level in this category.
