Hyatt has made an emphatic return to Queensland this week (Feb 1) with the rebranding of a popular property in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD.

Hyatt Regency Brisbane is the company’s first property in the Queensland capital and marks the return of the chain to the Sunshine State after nine years.

Located at the former Next Hotel Brisbane, the 292-room Hyatt Regency Brisbane will undergo a full refurbishment that will see the guest rooms, public areas, event spaces and dining venues enhanced over the next few months.

Hyatt’s Group President of Asia-Pacific, David Udell, said the chain was thrilled to be working with owners Salter Brothers for the first time and was confident the hotel would be a success in the competitive Brisbane market.

“We are grateful to open the first Hyatt hotel in Brisbane and look forward to bringing to this vibrant city the premium service and energising experiences that the Hyatt Regency brand is known for,” he said.

“Hyatt has had a presence in Australia for over 30 years. With Brisbane being one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, Hyatt Regency Brisbane will be a strategic addition to our growing portfolio in the country, complementing our current and future hotels in key destinations such as Sydney and Melbourne.”

The property is located in the heart of the city’s central business district and features a popular outdoor infinity pool and bar, 24-hour fitness center, an all-day restaurant and more than 100 square metres of flexible function space.

The refurbishment is set to enhance the hotel’s 292 rooms with modern décor and business-centric amenities such as comfortable workstations and bathrooms with walk-in showers.

Hyatt Regency Brisbane is located at 72 Queen St, Brisbane City QLD 4000.
