Whether visiting Nelson for business or pleasure, the Rutherford Hotel is an obvious choice. With nine floors and 114 rooms, it is the tallest building in the city and its largest accommodation provider. It is a popular location for conferences and features a gymnasium, pool and a business centre. The hotel's Japanese restaurant, Miyazu, is also worth a visit — it serves some of the city's best Japanese food and has teppanyaki chefs most nights ready to entertain enthusiastic guests.
