Hilton Hotels & Resorts is creating a world first experience for a limited number of guests in New Zealand this winter, with exclusive Hôtel du Marc inspired rooms created in partnership with Veuve Clicquot and available at Hilton Auckland, Hilton Lake Taupo and Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa.
“Hilton Hotels & Resorts is renowned for bringing world class experiences to their guests,” says Damon Woolf, marketing manager, Hilton New Zealand. “We are excited to bring a new concept to New Zealanders to enjoy a moment of escapism this winter.”
The Madame Clicquot Room at Hilton Auckland, the Ponsardin Suite at Hilton Lake Taupo, and the La Grande Dame Room at Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa include accommodations for two adults, complimentary breakfast and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot on arrival. The packages may be booked between June 6 and Friday, 25 August for stays occurring through Wednesday, 5 July and Sunday, 27 August, based on availability.
Guests will enjoy a mix of old world sophistication and modern décor, and the rooms will be expertly designed by interior stylist Michelle Halford of The Design Chaser. “I’m delighted to bring to life this innovative and exciting concept on behalf of Hilton Hotels & Resorts,” said Halford. “Hôtel du Marc is a beautiful and eclectic building and I’m excited to help Hilton Hotels & Resorts reinvent this here in New Zealand.”
A unique food and champagne pairing will also be available for purchase at each of the hotels throughout July and August. At Hilton Lake Taupo’s Bistro Lago, an Over the Moon cheeseboard matched with Veuve Clicquot NV will be on offer while at Hilton Queenstown, a three-course menu matched with Veuve Clicquot NV will be available from the Wakatipu Grill along with a flute and facial promotion at the hotel’s eforea spa.

Originally the residence of Madame Clicquot, the illustrious woman behind the luxury champagne as we know it today, Hôtel du Marc is an invitation only hotel in Reims, France. The epitome of the French ‘art de vivre’, the rooms are reserved for honoured visitors who come from the four corners of the world to discover the wines and history of the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin House. Hilton Hotel & Resorts’ curated rooms will capture the essence of the French space including a few ‘Clicquot twists’ and surprises for guests to discover.
