Brisbane Marriott Hotel, which turns 21 this year, has emerged from an A$20 million (US$14 million) revitalisation that saw an extensive redesign of its 267 guestrooms and suites, Executive Lounge, two floors of event space and its signature restaurant.
The works took place alongside the revitalisation of the hotel’s neighbouring Riverside Precinct.
Malaysian-based company Duoz Design incorporated the hotelâ€™s unique natural and historic surroundings into the new design, and used ambient lighting that are reminiscent of a balmy Brisbane evening, as well as neutral tones that recall the surrounding nature.
Guestrooms have also been fitted with the latest technology, including ASSO ABLOY Orion system, which controls each room’s lighting and air conditioning. This advanced technology also enables front desk staff to adjust lighting and air conditioning upon guest check-in to ensure a welcoming first impression.
The hotelâ€™s signature restaurant, Motion Dining, has been redesigned to include an array of dining offerings and experiences. Diners can be seated at tables overlooking the Grill, sit at high tables at the M bar, or enjoy alfresco dining overlooking the river on MDeck.
Event planners will appreciate the hotel’s selection of 12 flexible spaces divided across two floors, which comes supported by an expert event team.
