Brisbane Airport To Host Two More Accor Hotels

30th Jul 2014

Transit travelers at Brisbane Airport will soon have more options for their accommodation when the two new hotels start their operations sometime in 2016.

Pullman and Ibis are the upscale and economy brands, respectively, of Accor S.A. hotel collections. Brisbane Airport is already host to another Accor hotel, the Novotel Brisbane Airport, a mid-scale brand.

The two hotel projects have a combined pricetag of $150 million, which will also include a conference facility, to be named Brisbane Airport Conference & Meeting Centre.

The five-star Pullman Brisbane Airport will host a modest 130 rooms, and will also feature 2 presidential suites, 10 junior suites, and 45 executive rooms specifically designed for business travelers.

The Ibis Brisbane Airport, meanwhile, is to be rated as 3.5-star accommodation facility and will feature 243 rooms, 99 of which are superior rooms.

The five-star Pullman hotel will also feature a lobby lounge bar that can seat up to 60 guests at a time, a 152-seating capacity restaurant, a private dining hall for intimate setting for up to 12 persons, and a 24-hour room service.

In addition to the usual business center found mostly in major business hotels, Pullman Brisbane Airport will also host an executive club lounge and bar at the top floor, poolside dining facilities, an executive gym, and an entertainment facility.

Guests will surely enjoy lounging on poolside daybeds by the hotel's freeform leisure pool as well as its 20-meter lap pool.

The more economical Ibis Brisbane Airport will feature a much bigger dining facility that can host up to 160 guests at a time, as well as an indoor/outdoor bar with a 100-seat capacity. As if they're not enough, the hotel will likewise boast of a cafe, bar and a takeaway facility, and a huge bar and lounge at the rooftop that can accommodate up to 150 guests.

The Conference & Meeting Centre at Pullman Brisbane Airport will boast a pillar-less ballroom that can hold up to 600 people in an open room setting. It can also accommodate up to 300 persons in a banquet or dining setting. It will also feature 8 conference rooms and 4 executive boardrooms.

Construction of the two hotels is slated to start in February next year.
