Hilton Queenstown, along with Veuve Clicquot, has taken inspiration from the extremely exclusive, invitation-only Hotel du Marc in Reims, France, to create a piece of French glamour for Kiwis wanting an accessible and luxurious escape. The 19th-century Hotel du Marc is the epitome of old-world French glamour and the former residence of Madame Clicquot herself. At Hilton Queenstown, a King Hilton Deluxe Plus Lakeview room has had a temporary makeover by designer Michelle Halford to become La Grande Dame room. It's priced from $469, but get in quick — it's only available until August 27, based on availability. The Hilton's French experience may also be booked at Hilton's Auckland and Taupo hotels.
