Traders Hotels is looking to gain some traction in the highly lucrative AustralAsia tourism market with their first property in Brisbane inside a former Holiday Inn. The official handover was completed earlier this month but aside from a new name slapped on the outside, the property has gotten a complete brand overhaul.

If you're not familiar, the Traders brand is an offshoot of the high-end luxury brand, Shangri-La Hotels. Traders hotels offer a mid-market price point yet caters more to the savvy business traveler who likes a little design with their hotel stay. We not talking uber-luxury, but an affordable option with great customer service and quality on-property amenities.

This new property located in the heart of Brisbane's CBD will please both tourists and business guests with its easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment. All guests will also have free WiFi throughout the hotel's public areas--a major plus since Australian hotels commonly charge —a lot— for this service. The Traders Hotel even has limousine service equipped with WiFi. (You'll have to pay for the ride though.)

The hotel has also added an all-day dining restaurant, MJ's Restaurant as well as MJ's Bar. Rounding out the on-site services are a fully equipped fitness center with whirlpools to work off the calories from the lobby bar or unwind after a long day. Rates start at $279 a night.

We'll have a full review of what Traders Brisbane has to offer, with loads of snaps, in the coming weeks. In the meantime, share your Traders Hotels experiences with us in comments below!
