Christchurch Hotel to Re-Open; First in City Center After Earthquake

September 3, 2012 By: Jena Tesse Fox


Good news from Christchurch, New Zealand, today, in a further sign of the city's rebirth since the February 2011 earthquake: The Ibis Christchurch has opened its doors, becoming the first city center hotel to re-open since the disaster. 

According to CIM Magazine, the Ibis has undergone major remedial work, including the renovation of all 155 rooms and public areas, as well as structural strengthening to meet the city’s new building code. Just four years old when the quake hit, the Ibis received only minor damage and re-opens as a virtually new hotel featuring the latest Ibis branding and facilities. 

The launch of the hotel comes a month after the announcement of a masterplan for the “re-imagining” of the city, with the Ibis to be nearby the proposed convention centre.
