06-May-2010 | The Clarion Hotel City Park Grand is exactly that - grand. Built in the 1850’s the once favourite watering hole of visiting sailors and ladies of disrepute is now a stunning 4.5 star heritage listed boutique hotel with a brand new conference facility.Photography by Tiger Media.
The conference facility consists of two grandly appointed board rooms, a large conference room and breakout area, all decked out with royal blue carpet, solid timber furniture, leather boardroom chairs and huge flat screen televisions.
The best part about the renovation is the attention to detail. Renovated in the same vein as the Henry Jones Art Hotel and The Islington, Clarion Hotel City Park Grand, has flashes of history dotted throughout. From a wall of the original brick and the original warehouse doors to the huge grain wheel in the old stables (now spa suites), this is an impressive property retaining the historical aspects of the site.
Catering for conferences of up to 50 PAX and meetings of 12 PAX, the venue is still under development with plans for even grander renovations to come. The car park is to be converted to a lush courtyard filled with greenery and adorned with an atrium ceiling similar to that of the IXL Atrium. The hotel has also just opened the doors to a well appointed gymnasium.
A property dedicated to exceeding expectations, the Clarion Hotel City Park Grand offers touches of complimentary home style hospitality throughout the venue. An impressive espresso machine sits in the lounge with a pot of cookies, available for guests to make a cafe style coffee for free at any time.
An extensive DVD library is available to guests to select a film to watch in their room – in case the free Austar service isn’t showing anything that appeals. Large leather chesterfields are cleverly arranged throughout the venue for lounging about reading a book, sipping the free coffee or watching the gigantic flat screen TV in the guest lounge.
If you are not familiar with the Hotel City Park Grand, it is well worth a look. Located on Tamar Street in Launceston, it is right across the road from Boags and only a short walk from the mall.
An ideal venue for a small conference, overflow accommodation and breakout rooms for a larger conference at Hotel Grand Chancellor Launceston and the Albert Hall, or the ideal central home away from home from which pre and post tourists can explore Launceston, Tamar and the North.
