 Distinction Hotels has continued its impressive expansion, adding a property in Wellington to its collection.

The New Zealand-owned hotel chain has recently taken over the 4.5-star Century City Apartments on Tory Street in Wellington CBD, with the property coming online on September 1, 2011.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to work in Wellington, continuing to expand from a tourist focus to adding properties which have a strong corporate market,” said Distinction Hotels CEO, Duncan Fletcher.

“This is a significant step for the company, in line with their current strategy of broadening the company’s reach.”

The former Grand Mercure-branded apartments are 24 months old, originally built by property developer Terry Serepisos and sold to Wellington investor Mark Dunajtschik this year.

The property has a total of 89 rooms, ranging from studios to penthouse suites, and facilities include an indoor pool, covered parking, and on-site gym.
