Brisbane's Hotel Scene Is Booming with The Arrival of 3 New Hotels

Australia's third-largest city was at one time considered a "big-country town", but that nickname might be ancient history with Brisbane welcoming three new hotels over the next few months. And the transformation couldn't come at a more perfect time with the G20 Summit taking place in the city this November.

Previously, Brisbane was rather barren when it came to edgy hotels. But soon the city will have a lot to show when it comes to cool destination hotels.

Already welcoming guests, Gambaro Hotel will attract those who want a slice of design within Brisbane's liveliest entertainment districts. Located on Caxton Street, Gambaro offers up sleek decor and luxury amenities like APPELLES Apothecary amenities and Sealy signature beds. Best of all, it has a rooftop with extraordinary views.

Alpha Mosaic Hotel, just opened this week, offering up 51 rooms and 213 apartments and featuring an eclectic mix of materials from original bespoke pieces and vintage finds including restored armchairs and handmade copper array lighting throughout the lobby. This artsy design was done by the same creative minds behind Sydney's 1888 Hotel. Situated in the bustling Fortitude Valley neighborhood, the hotel also has a restaurant and a trendy lounge. Ten retail outlets are also expected to open later in the year.

We've already mentioned the addition of the still shrouded NEXT Hotel, SilverNeedle's newest brand, that will open in September before the summit. They've just released the first pics of the rooms and renderings of their tech-savvy lobby, ideal for the business road-warrior. The 304-room hotel will be a short walk over the river to the main conference center. It will also be close to a ton of shopping in case any world leaders need to pick up some trinkets for the holidays.

And More...

Let's not forget Tryp Fortitude Valley by Wyndham, which is getting a lot of media hype, thanks to it's funky styles and art offerings. Of particular interest is their outside building murals.
This is on too of all the construction taking place by the Showgrounds and hospital. Brisbane is definitely on the boom, so the established properties in the CBD need to keep their eyes wide open.


Most definitely!

Here's the piece we did on Tryp by Wyndham:

You're absolutely right, the CBD hotels will have some competition.

It's what they do with such a small area

You know what I love the most about hotels - it's what they do with such a small area. Putting in ample storage space, and giving us luxury up to our eyeballs.
