Fodor's Expert Review Rydges Latimer Christchurch

30 Latimer Sq., Christchurch, Canterbury, 8011, New Zealand

Set on leafy Latimer Square, this newly built low-rise hotel is just a few minutes' walk from the central city, but far enough away to be quiet and relaxed. Many of the rooms and family-size suites overlook the square, and there is a spacious penthouse taking up the entire top level. It's just a short walk to the Transitional "Cardboard" Cathedral, a must-visit symbol of the new Christchurch. Do dine in the splendor of Bloody Mary's restaurant–-and don't forget to ask about the intriguing story of how it got its name.
