Stay in style at the Brisbane Marriott
◗ 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.
