Stay in style at the Bris­bane Mar­riott

Central and North Burnett Times - - LIFE -

◗ GET THERE: A 20-minute drive from Bris­bane Air­port, the Mar­riott is in the heart of the CBD. Take a taxi from the air­port for about $45 or catch a bus for about $20. If driv­ing, en­ter the ho­tel from Howard St and take ad­van­tage of valet park­ing for $55 a day.

◗ GET AROUND: Take a 10-minute trip in a taxi for $10 and be dropped at South Bank in the thick of the fes­ti­val ac­tion.

◗ DINE: In­dulge in a mod­ern Aus­tralian menu at in-house restau­rant Mo­tion Bar and Grill. Pre­pared by ex­ec­u­tive chef Peter Iwanczyk, the menu changes sea­son­ally, dis­play­ing cre­ativ­ity to in­cor­po­rate re­gional pro­duce with in­ter­na­tional flavours.

◗ WINE: Multi-purpose chill walls hold­ing an ex­quis­ite range of wine glow shades of pastel pink, yel­low and green. Aus­tralian and in­ter­na­tional pro­duc­ers are rep­re­sented in equal mea­sure, en­sur­ing a se­lec­tion can be made for all tastes and bud­gets.

◗ RE­LAX: Gaze out your room win­dow at de­light­ful views of the Bris­bane River. If you’re on the lucky side, the Story Bridge may also be in sight.

◗ SO­CIALISE: Dur­ing the fes­ti­val you might just rub shoul­ders with a culi­nary idol. The Mar­riott is a key spon­sor of the event and most of the vis­it­ing chefs and pro­duc­ers will be based there dur­ing their stay.
