Brisbane is set to receive its first major hotel in a decade, with Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane set to hit the Brisbane CBD in 2014.
After striking up a long term agreement with Felicity Hotel, Starwood has won a long term management contract to debut the Four Points brand in Brisbane.
Targeting both business and leisure travellers, the 246 room hotel will stand at 32-storeys, featuring two dining outlets, an all day restaurant and bar.
The hotel will also service the conference market with 200 square metres of function space and high quality technology and amenities for business travellers.
Marking the fourth Four Points in Australia, Starwood senior vice president acquisition and development branded the development as a “significant chapter” for the brand’s future in Australia.
“Brisbane is a thriving business city on the east coast of Australia, and we look forward to ensure Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane is the city’s leading select-service hotel in terms of its location, comfortable accommodation and extensive business facilities,” he said.
Felicity Hotel managing director Paul Chong described the move as an “exciting development”, adding that it was the only purpose built corporate hotel of its kind under development in Brisbane.
Starwood currently operates ten hotels across Australia under a range of brands, including Westin, Sheraton, Le Meridien, and Luxury Collection.
