Hospitality Awards 2014 Finalists


For the fourth year in a row, Rydges Wellington has been named as a finalist in the New Zealand Hospitality Awards. This year, the hotel has been selected as a finalist in two categories: Best Accommodation Hotel and Excellence in Marketing. 

The team at Rydges Wellington were ecstatic to discover they had been named finalists. The hotel management credit this achievement to the hard-working individuals throughout the hotel that work tirelessly to provide guests with exceptional service and quality standards.

The hotel's restaurant, Portlander Bar & Grill, has also been named a finalist in awards, in the category of Best Restaurant. Like Rydges Wellington, Portlander is not new to winning awards. Last year, the restaurant took out the top prize for Excellence in Marketing and Excellence in Customer Service at the 2013 awards.       

Hospitality New Zealand chief executive officer Bruce Robertson says “The standard and quality among these finalists sets them apart from their competitors in the marketplace, and any of the finalists would make worthy winners. They are a proud reflection of where the cutting edge of New Zealand’s hospitality industry is moving – delivering consumers service standards which are the equal of anywhere in the world.”

The Rydges Wellington team are eagerly looking forward to the Hospitality New Zealand national conference in Rotorua on September 17, where the winners will be announced.
