A new Ramada Suites hotel will open on Taranaki St in Wellington in late 2020.

On the corner of Taranaki  Vivian streets, the hotel will have 93 contemporary rooms and conference facilities. The serviced apartments will replace the former Ricoh offices  built in 2010.

It will be Wyndham Hotels & Resorts 14th hotel in New Zealand and its first in Wellington.  The company owns the Ramada Suites, Days Inn and Wyndham Garden franchises.

Renderings of the building show its green and red horizontal exterior panelling will be replaced with glass and thin black vertical panels.

A resource consent was lodged for alterations to the building in December last year. In the rendering, the fenced-off patch of grass next door, along Taranaki St, is re-opened as public space and replanted.
