Rendezvous Hospitality Group (RHG) is to launch The Marque Hotel brand in New Zealand with the re-branding of the planned Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch, which will now open in early 2010 as The Marque Hotel Christchurch.

RHG, which already operates The Marque Hotels in four Australian cities; Brisbane, Canberra, Perth and Sydney, has decided that the Christchurch property provides the perfect opportunity to introduce The Marque Hotel brand as a contemporary and stylish hotel concept to the New Zealand accommodation market.

Iqbal Jumabhoy, CEO of RHG said, “As we already have a well established and very large RHG hotel in New Zealand with the Rendezvous Hotel Auckland, we have decided to launch The Marque Hotel brand in the Christchurch market.

“Due to the company’s recent new corporate direction and growth plans, we have redefined both the Rendezvous Hotel and The Marque Hotel brands. From this we have decided that the Christchurch property is better suited to our reinvigorated The Marque Hotel brand,” Mr Jumabhoy added.

The Marque Hotel Christchurch will be the flagship hotel for The Marque Hotel brand in New Zealand and will maintain the 4.5 star quality and service positioning as originally planned.

The Marque Hotel Christchurch, which will be one of the tallest buildings in the South Island, will incorporate a number of innovative features to make it uniquely environmentally friendly, including an energy generating wind turbine designed to allow for a variety of energy generating devices to be installed.

The Marque Hotel Christchurch’s 171 rooms and suites will feature contemporary finishes including polished stone vanities, high ceilings, 32” LCD flat screen TVs, in-room safes, high-speed broadband access and air-conditioning.

Other hotel facilities and features will include secure undercover parking, 24 hour reception, tour desk, gym and sauna, 24 hour room service, and a stylish restaurant and bar. The hotel is a departure point on the famous Scenic Tram.

The hotel is centrally positioned close to the famous Cathedral Square and the Central Business District, and is an easy walk to many of Christchurch’s major attractions including the Avon River, Botanical Gardens, Arts Centre, Museum and Art Gallery, as well as an array of restaurants and shops.
