Usually, when a 25th birthday is in order, there is no talk about a make-over or a face-lift. At least, we hope not. But when it came to celebrating their 25th anniversary, The Hilton in Brisbane has gone all out to spruce themselves up.

Overall, the property is in a great location and has seen heaps of people come and go. Including the Aussie celeb set, socialites and locals alike. With all of these visitors, the hotel started to look a little run-down and was in need of a major modernization. And that's just what Hilton did to the tune of $37 million.

The lobby was the one of the first to get the refresh featuring a delicious new teppinyaki bar. The new restaurant boasts wines from both Australia and the finest regions of the world. The lobby is now once again the Brisbane hot-spot with barista service during the day and a wine bar at night.

Even the rooms got the upgrade as well with lush and modern decor. Since the hotel is smack in the middle of the city, each room is (almost) guaranteed an amazing view of the river or the hinterland.

Don't be fooled, there is still a good amount of work to be done. With their eyes set on the swimming pool, tennis courts and the facade of the building, Hilton will once again the destination hotel for tourists and locals.

If you are just itching to get there, rooms start at $316 AUD.

Meanwhile in other Brisbane news, the Holiday Inn Brisbane will turn into a Traders Hotel on August 7. Not familiar with Traders? It's the affordable biz traveler brand from Shangri-La Hotels. This will be the third Shangri-La Hotel for Australia with a majority of Traders Hotels in China.
