Our Exclusive Peek Inside The New Rooms at Sofitel Brisbane
We had the opportunity to have a first-hand look at the fresh new rooms that Sofitel Brisbane offers guests starting this week. The sexy spaces have just been completed and we were the first to have a glimpse of the new fabrics, unique details and comfy living areas each room sports.
Working heavily on the theme of a Parisian apartment, these rooms mimic a pied-à-terre that would suit any jetsetter on their routine visit to Europe, except all in the perfect weather of Australia. A wanderlust play on location with images of both Paris and Brisbane showcase Sofitel roots and local flair; use of luxurious velvets and woven Damasks, we could spend an extended stay here and feel right at home.
Color is the name of the game here with a subdued, yet eye-catching use of accent pops that are used throughout the room and even into the hallways. A rich peacock blue for the Superior rooms, plum for the Club level rooms and robin's egg blue accents for the Junior suites (at around $548 a night) all create a chic European feel.
The true pièce de résistance has to be the Opera Suite. This, along with the Prestige suite, has seen a full gut rehab to create a living space that's right out of Paris' Latin Quarter. Original art, Hermès toiletries and fine details make this the most sought after suite in the city.
The bathroom has a giant Japanese stone-tub, big enough for two connected to an open-plan dressing wardrobe. Our favorite thing? The subtle pin-tucked Damask pattern in the tiles. Now we know why so many celebs choose this room over any other.
