A spokesman for the Millennium Hotel, on Frankton Rd, said it was part of a consolidation plan while overseas tourists were shut out.
It is understood the doors will close on Sunday. There is no reopening date yet.
"Our two Copthorne hotels in Queenstown remain open and we look forward to welcoming guests now and into the future to these hotels,’’ the spokesman said.
‘‘Having recently completed building works at Copthorne Hotel Lakefront we will take this opportunity to make improvements to the Millennium Hotel Queenstown before reopening at a later date.’’
It was not the first time the Millennium had closed since the pandemic struck, having shut for a period between lockdown and the winter school holidays.
