ART SERIES EXPANDS IN BRISBANE
ART Series Hotels will open its newest property at Brisbane’s Howard Smith Wharves in Mar next year. The $60 million hotel (render pictured) will be the first new addition for the brand since it joined the AccorHotels family in May this year.
Spanning six-storeys, the property will be carved into the cliff under Story Bridge and will feature 166 rooms with contemporary furnishings and original artworks, along with four food and beverage outlets and a rooftop pool with views of the Brisbane River and CBD.
The hotel will also have a bar, a gym and three conference rooms, fully equipped with the latest technology offerings.
AccorHotels Pacific Chief Operating Officer Simon McGrath said the new Brisbane property would set a clear direction for Australia’s only art inspired hotel group.
Art Series will release further details, including the hotel’s namesake artist, later this month and reservations will open from 30 Nov.
MEANWHILE the Howard Smith Wharves hosted its first event at The Rivershed last week for the Australian Airports Association, with 570 guests filling the venue.
Howard Smith Wharves is set to also host TEDxBrisbane in Dec at Howard’s Hall, an event space boasting 1,100m2 with cocktail capacity for 1,200.
Howard Smith Wharves Director Adam Flaskas said Howard’s Hall was an “integral part of the game-changing precinct that will reactivate 3.4 hectares of Brisbane’s picturesque riverside, with uninterrupted riverfront views spanning the iconic Story Bridge and city skyline”.
