ART SE­RIES EX­PANDS IN BRIS­BANE

Business Events News - - Front Page -

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”.
