Brisbane ups ante with new hotel openings

Brisbane’s accommodation, incentives and events offerings have been bolstered with the launch of Australia’s only W Hotel and the Novotel Brisbane South Bank this month.

W Brisbane

The five-star W Brisbane offers approximately 1,100 square metres of vibrant indoor and outdoor event and meeting spaces, which includes a sprawling 595 square metre, pillarless ‘Great Room’ to cater for large productions or conferences of up to 450 guests banquet style - or can be divided into three separate spaces for events of up to 150 guests.

The Novotel Brisbane South Bank  offers two flexible function rooms for intimate meetings which can be used separately or combined to suit events from 17 – 145 attendees, while also being a short walk from the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Brisbane Convention Bureau General Manager Juliet Alabaster said the completion of these two hotels will add to the city’s ability to attract conferences and incentive groups.
