Starwood’s hip W Hotels brand is set for an Australian return in 2018 with the announcement of W Hotel Brisbane. The new W Brisbane will be a complete new-build hotel, meaning the Brisbane CBD is in for a great new addition to the city. The brand is known for their stunning design and guest experience. From the moment of arrival, guests are invited into surprising, sensory environments where amplified entertainment, vibrant lounges, modern guest rooms and innovative cocktails and cuisine create more than just a hotel experience, but a luxury lifestyle destination. Scheduled to open in early 2018 as part of a mixed-use development, W Brisbane – developed by Shayher Leisure Holdings Pty Ltd – will bring a new interpretation of modern luxury to George Street at the western end of the central business district, overlooking the Brisbane River.
