Last week, we gave you a peek inside the newest Pullman in London and today, we'll show you what's happening down under in Brisbane.

The Brisbane Pullman has completed a full renovation and re-branding from the city's former Sebel hotel. Sporting 2 different towers, Accor has split up the hotel making one side a Mercure and the other, a Pullman. While both towers share a lobby, guests of each brand can get comfy with the typical Pullman design using rich aquas and cerulean furniture and rugs at first impression.

As expected, the rooms on the Pullman side have that sleek touch that is both warm and modern. Textured walls and over-sized headboards are married with geometrics in charcoal, black and pearl. Each of the rooms feature cream colored leather chairs and glass desks to appeal to their latest market, the bliesure traveler (just like in London!)

We recommend booking a room with a sizable balcony overlooking both the neighboring church and King George Square. These rooms seem a bit larger and have the premium outdoor space that, due to year-round fabulous weather, can be perfect for the morning coffee or a pre-dinner toast. While these rooms don't gain access to the Executive Lounge, you can upgrade for a fee of $50 per night to relax in the lounge.

Unfortunately, unlike it' London cousin, this property does not feature the futuristic, Accor lobby inititave of a 'welcomer' and self-service iPad check-in, but since the old-fashioned way of talking to a reception staff will have to do, it might make it easier to score one of those balcony rooms.

At first glance, the buildings are a bit dated since they were built in 1971 and 1982, respectively, but that can only mean they come with a history. We've been told that Keith Urban got his start in the basement bar crooning to hotel guests long before he was choosing American Idols.

Room rates start at 161 AUD ($148 USD) per night for a standard room.

The bed looks so flat! It looks rigid almost. I hope that's not the case!

Trout the same thing,

So I HAD to test it out. Not  by jumping on it. But pressing down with my hands and it was soft and squishy, but there was no pillow-top. Sad panda.

Don't you love staying in a hotel with a history

Don't you love staying in a hotel with a history. Brisbane seems to have a lot of these around and especially near some of our more iconic landmarks. It's good to see the hotels putting the spotlight on the Brisbane attractions rather than focusing more on their own amenities..
