Why Choose CQ Hotels Wellington

There are many reasons why you should choose CQ Hotels Wellington for your Wellington hotel when you visit Wellington. Here are our 8 favourite reasons for why you should come and stay!

Reason 1: Accommodation in the heart of Wellington

Unbeatable Location. You can’t beat our funky and convenient location for your Wellington hotel accommodation. Cuba Street is the beating heart of Wellington. Full of boutique shops, vintage stores, art galleries, cafes, restaurants and hidden bars. You only need to step out the doors of our Wellington hotel to be surrounded by wonderful sights, smells and experiences just waiting to be discovered. We are also located within walking distance to most key Wellington attractions including Te Papa which is only 10 minutes away and the Wellington Waterfront which is a mere 5 minute walk away from our Wellington hotel. CQ Hotels Wellington is located only 6.5 kms from Wellington International Airport and we have easy directly access around the back of our Wellington with onsite car parking (from Dunlop Terrace accesses via Vivian Street).

Reason 2: Unique Wellington hotel accommodation

We are Different. We are a different concept to your typical Wellington hotel. In fact, we have two fantastic hotels to choose from, suiting whatever style or budget you would like from your Wellington accommodation. Choose from the modern and spacious Q Hotel Wellington, which is rated 4.5 Star by Qualmark or the charming and cost-effective C Hotel Wellington, which has been rated 3.5 Star by Qualmark. The two hotels are within the same CQ Wellington hotel complex and share the lobby and reception area, dining areas and general Wellington hotel facilities such the indoor heated pool and fitness centre.

Reason 3: Stylish Wellington hotel accommodation

Our Individual Style. CQ Hotels Wellington has its own unique style and doesn’t follow a cookie cutter hotel model. We work with local art galleries who provide our Wellington hotel artwork and also have a magnificent piece of artwork in our lobby area, which was commissioned by CQ Hotel Wellington to artist Fraser Hoffe. Our hotels rooms are modern but have character – making this Wellington hotel feel like a home away from home.

Reason 4: Excellent staff and service

Fabulous Staff. At CQ Hotels Wellington we have approximately 70 full, part-time and casual staff whose main aim is to make sure your visit to Wellington and our Wellington hotel is the best it could possibly be. We strive to find the right people that will fit in with our team and exude the same passion for our Wellington hotel and guests.

Reason 5: Accessible Wellington hotel accommodation

Accessible for all. CQ Hotels Wellington was the first New Zealand hotel and also Wellington hotel to be rated by Be.Accessible. The hotel received a GOLD rating for its fantastic accessible facilities and work with the accessible market. Our Wellington hotel is recognised in the community as the most accessible hotel in New Zealand. Some of the key accessible hotel features are a lowered check-in desk, accessible hotel information pack, vibrating pillows in the accessible rooms, Braille restaurant menus, evacuation chairs on the higher floors, staff who have learnt sign language and also 6 fully accessible hotel rooms on the Q Hotel Wellington side and 3 fully accessible rooms on the C Hotel Wellington side.

Reason 6: Close to Wellington shops, attractions and dining

We love Wellington. If you haven’t visited Wellington in a while, you’re definitely missing out on one of the most vibrant city experiences in New Zealand if not the world! Wellington has firmly set its place as the culinary capital of New Zealand – with more cafes per capita than New York! When you stay at CQ Hotels Wellington, you’re sitting on the doorstep of some of New Zealand’s best cafes and restaurants including Logan Brown (just across the road) that was a former Best Restaurant in New Zealand award winner. To celebrate this, Wellington has an amazing food festival every August called Visa Wellington on a Plate. This event celebrates Wellington cuisine with foodie events and special menu deals for two weeks. It’s not only Visa Wellington on a Plate that we have in Wellington; Wellington has fabulous events on almost every month of the year, including World of WearableArts and Wellington Sevens and CQ Hotels Wellington is your perfect event base for exploring this exciting city – and what’s best is that Wellington is so walkable, you don’t even need a car while you’re here (but it you do have a car, CQ Hotels Wellington has secure parking onsite!).

Reason 7: Variety of hotel and apartment accommodation

So Many Room Types. Whatever the reason is that brings you to Wellington, whether it’s a family holiday, work trip or girls weekend away, CQ Hotels Wellington has the room type and configuration to suit your needs.
