As Christchurch commemorates the fifth anniversary of the September 2010
earthquakes today, a sign of resurgence was symbolised with the official
opening of the city's largest hotel - the 264-room BreakFree on Cashel.
The $30m project - which also sees the hotel reach a Grade A seismic
rating - embraces the city's history with the interior showcasing recycled
timber salvaged from Christchurch buildings demolished following the
earthquakes, including timber from the old stands at the iconic Lancaster
Park sports stadium.
Guests are welcomed with modern design elements as soon as they enter the
spacious lobby from Cashel Street that serves as a combined reception,
lounge, bar and restaurant. The hub of the hotel, it's a space where
guests can connect with colleagues and friends via free wi-fi*.
The hotel incorporates some of the latest smart technology including
high-definition and interactive digital entertainment systems enabling
guests to mirror their smart phone on the TV screen via the Smartview App
for social media interaction as well as music and videos through iTunes,
YouTube or Netflix. Complimentary wireless key boards are available
for loan from reception.
Hotel facilities include unique 'pod style rooms' as well as the addition
of high quality traditional hotel rooms located on the top floor executive
level. There is a contemporary interactive Café/Restaurant and
Bar; breakfast room, guest lounge; conference room catering for up to 80
people and 2 boardroom style meeting spaces with capacity for 20 people;
24-hour reception; internet kiosk; guest laundry and onsite parking.
