Two new hotels planned for Brisbane Airport

Simon McGrath, chief operating officer for Accor Pacific, which operates both the Pullman and ibis brands, said the hotel development project is a strategic step in the economic growth of Brisbane.

“With passenger numbers through the international and domestic terminals in Brisbane expected grow to 38 million per year in the next 20 years, Accor is excited to be involved from the ground level in this forward thinking project which will strengthen the local tourism economy,” he said. “It reflects the broader vision behind Brisbane Airport’s master plan, while reinforcing Accor’s reputation as Australia’s leading and most accessible accommodation operator working across economy and midscale segments through to upscale and luxury markets.

“Worldwide, Accor is an airport hotel specialist and we continue to innovate and lead in this sector. Pullman and ibis will add to the existing Novotel and ibis Budget airport hotels at Brisbane Airport and expand our product offering, to cover the full spectrum of the hotel market from economy to upscale, proving more accommodation options and greater choice for domestic and international travellers.”

As the sole hotel operator located at the Brisbane Airport precinct and immediate surrounds, Accor’s hotel network currently includes an ibis Budget and Novotel hotel at Skygate Brisbane Airport.

The Pullman Brisbane Airport hotel will include 130 rooms, a freeform leisure pool with a 20 metre lap pool, poolside daybeds and pergolas available for guests relaxing in transit or waiting for a flight, a top floor executive club lounge and bar, business centre and executive gym.

The ibis Brisbane Airport will offer 243 rooms, an alfresco indoor/outdoor restaurant catering to 160 diners, a ground floor indoor/outdoor bar for 100 patrons, a cafe, bar and takeaway facility, and roof top bar and lounge catering for up to 150 people.

Catering for up to 600 people at any one time and covering some 735sqm, the Brisbane Airport Conference & Meeting Centre (the hotels’ joint central conference, meeting and event space) includes a 300 seat pillar-less Ballroom, eight medium to large conference rooms and four executive boardrooms. Other facilities include an open air terrace breakout area, a business centre and cloakroom.

Construction is set to commence in February 2015, for an expected opening on November 1, 2016.
