The Park Hyatt Auckland (PHA) is about the making of place. It references, in New Zealand Maori, the welcoming manaa-kitanga. It is a new life in the Wynyard Quarter. Historically, a working harbour zone of the city of Auckland. P H A prioritizes creating a sense of place over conforming to traditional hotel standards. It incorporates Maori culture, and is situated 10m away from one edge of the working harbour and 20 from another. There is a plaza at the North end and only one street frontage to the West. The hotel offers stunning views of the city and the harbour. The ground-level restaurants and bars open outward, connecting with the public promenades around the building, and the colonnade runs the perimeter, allowing multiple pedestrian entries. The hotel's 195 rooms have various configurations and offer beautiful views. The building is rectangular in form with large internal atria. It encompasses squares and figures of eight in planning, sky-gardens, roof terraces and a mansard-like roof. It is single room deep, with two enormous daylit atria interlaced with a round circulation silo and upper walkways. The hotel's art and attention to detail create unique and unforgettable experiences for guests, which are meant to remain with them now and forever.
