Paperless Check-in

Holiday Inn Auckland Airport has made the switch from paper to a digital solution at check-in by swapping out traditional paper reservation forms and printed receipts for mounted tablets at our hotel Front Desk. This green system sets to saves countless sheets of paper which would traditionally be printed for every new guest as a part of the hotel check-in & check-out procedure. We also use web based programmes (Quore & Tyalls) to manage internal audits and our daily hotel operations 

In-House Beehive

With the help of BeezThingz, Holiday Inn Auckland Airport has become home to a beehive. As pollinators, bees play a key part in every aspect of our ecosystem. Each year the beehive produces 7kg of honey which is used in the kitchen for their delicious culinary creations.

Hotel Weka

Holiday Inn Auckland Airport takes part in the Hotel Weka Recycling Program which recycles parts of used toiletries to eliminate the journey of plastic bottles and tubes going to landfills.
