Down Under They're Gettin' Another Westin
It might not be planning to check in any guests until 2012, but the Westin chain are excited enough to tell us that they are planning to open up in Brisbane soon as part of an Australian expansion.
Queensland's sunny capital, Brisbane, will house the third Aussie Westin after Sydney and Melbourne. The new Westin will be purpose-built and will have 306 rooms in a handy spot in the center of the city--near the Central Station, casino and the large convention center. It will share a 66-story tower that will also include private residences.
The Westin bed will be there, of course, and a spa, indoor pool and fitness center--although they're not saying yet whether we'll be able to get fit with their Wiis or not. We sure hope so. Then again, come 2012, there might be an even more fun way of getting a workout.
