W Hotels, part of Marriott International, has marked its return to Australia with the opening of W Brisbane.
The group formerly ran a hotel in Sydney, which closed down around ten years ago.
It is Brisbane’s first five-star hotel opening in 20 years.
Situated with views over Brisbane River, W Brisbane features 312 guest rooms, including 32 suites. The ‘Extreme Wow Suite’, the hotel’s presidential accommodation, is located on the 33rd floor and features panoramic views of the area surrounding the property.
The hotel features three food and drink options, including the Three Blue Ducks restaurant, the Living Room Bar and the WET Deck rooftop poolside bar.
For corporate events, W Brisbane offers 1,100sqm of space, with the 595sqm Great Room featuring AV facilities. Additional meeting rooms include the Studios and Strategy Room, which provide views of the river and floor-to-ceiling windows.
There is also a selection of treatments available at the AWAY Spa, which will soon feature a hair salon, and a fully-equipped gym.
W Hotels is planning further openings in Australia, with properties in Sydney and Melbourne set for completion in 2020.
