Hotel Grand Windsor wins Boutique Hotel of the Year 2019

Auckland’s Hotel Grand Windsor has scooped up yet another prestigious international accolade, winning the ‘Boutique Hotel of the Year 2019’ in the LUXLife Magazine Hotel & Spa Awards.

Published quarterly, LUXLife informs readers on all aspects of high end lifestyle, including the finest food and drink, hotels and resorts, health and beauty, automotive, jewellery, art and technology from around the world.

Exploring the success of their winners, Edward Faulkner, LUXLife Awards co-ordinator said, “When people from across the globe need an escape from their everyday lives to be pampered away from reality they turn to the specialists in the luxury hospitality industry.”  “Whether they provide relaxing spa treatments, run boutique retail venues, offer gourmet cuisine or sporting pursuits, we at LUXlife Magazine are proud to offer recognition to each and every winner.”

Christopher Dickinson, general manager at Hotel Grand Windsor, said the recognition from the UK’s most illustrious luxury publication is an honour that he and his team are very proud to receive. “We strive to make sure each and every guest we welcome has an exceptional stay with us, so this award truly reflects our unwavering commitment to world-class, top quality, bespoke accommodation and hospitality in the heart of Auckland city,” and “Plans are underway for our new spa offering, set to open in 2020, and this will truly take our guest experience to a whole new level of luxury.”

An MGallery by Sofitel property, the original 1920’s Art Deco architecture and interior design within the Hotel Grand Windsor provided the aesthetic foundation for the extensive redevelopment, successfully transforming the property from a three-star to five-star hotel.
