Westin set for Queensland debut with November opening in Brisbane
The highly anticipated The Westin Brisbane, part of Marriott International, will open its doors on 8 November 2018, revealing a unique urban retreat for the river city. The hotel is the first for the Westin brand in Queensland, and will bring a superior level of health and wellness offerings, four superb dining outlets and resort style facilities to the Brisbane CBD.
“Brisbane has emerged as a sophisticated and vibrant city and The Westin Brisbane will be a welcome addition to the fabric of the city,” said Brad Mercer, General Manager, The Westin Brisbane. “The hotel will be well positioned to service the influx of both domestic and international travellers seeking a hotel that focuses on health and well-being, whilst providing a level of style and elegance synonymous with the Westin brand.”
The Westin Brisbane has a prime location within walking distance of the Queen Street Mall, Eagle Street Pier, the Botanic Gardens and the South Bank Parklands and arts precinct, and offers 299 guest rooms, each with sweeping views of the city skyline. A Westin Club Lounge is also available to guests staying on designated club floors. Guests will enjoy signature Westin services and amenities, such as the world-renowned Heavenly® Bed and invigorating Heavenly® Bath experience.
In keeping with the Westin’s philosophy to incorporate natural surroundings into even the most urban of its developments, The Westin Brisbane showcases floor to ceiling windows throughout its various venues, creating an abundance of natural light and merging the outdoor surroundings with the interior decor.
A health and wellness focus is prevalent throughout the hotel with a dedicated two-floor wellness centre offering a fully equipped WestinWORKOUT® fitness studio and Heavenly® Spa – Westin’s first in Australia offering signature treatments for mind and body. The hotel’s swimming pool will be situated adjacent to the fitness centre, with stretch and balance classes taking place on the 400 square metre podium around the pool deck. Guests can also take advantage of the hotel’s exclusive ‘Run Concierge’, a resident running buddy for guests looking to maintain their fitness whilst on the road.
Four onsite dining venues include two signature restaurants, a lounge bar and a pool bar – complete with Brisbane’s only swim-up bar. Each will complement the health and wellness aspects, offering menus which incorporate fresh, local ingredients in classic styles.
An ideal setting for functions, the hotel boasts more than 930 square metres of conference and event space, equipped with cutting edge technology providing a dynamic space for guests to thrive and engage in thoughtful and stimulating meetings and events. The Ballroom, breakout rooms, pre-function area and restaurant are located on the same floor to optimise collaboration and maximize interaction.
The AUD$200 million hotel is part of a mixed-use development called Mary Lane, which will offer an array of vibrant dining venues and stylish residences, in the heart of the central business district.
