Hyatt Regency Brand Grows in Australia with Entry into Brisbane at Salter Brothers Queen St Mall Hotel
As the first Hyatt hotel to open in Brisbane, the hotel brings premium service and energizing experiences into the heart of the city
MELBOURNE (February 1, 2021) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today with Salter Brothers the opening of Hyatt Regency Brisbane, the first Hyatt hotel in Brisbane and eighth operating Hyatt hotel in Australia. Located in the heart of the city’s central business district within Queen Street Mall, the 292-room Hyatt Regency Brisbane offers business travelers and leisure guests a relaxing haven complete with an outdoor infinity pool and bar. The hotel, which has been rebranded from an existing hotel and will undergo a refurbishment to enhance the guestrooms, public areas, event spaces and dining venues, is the first project between Hyatt and Salter Brothers, marking the return of the Hyatt brand into the state of Queensland.
“We are grateful to work with Salter Brothers on the first Hyatt hotel in Brisbane and look forward to bringing the premium service and energizing experiences that the Hyatt Regency brand is known for to this vibrant city,” said David Udell, group president, Asia-Pacific, Hyatt. “Hyatt has had a brand presence in Australia for more than 30 years. With Brisbane being one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, Hyatt Regency Brisbane is a strategic addition to our growing portfolio in the country, complementing our current and future hotels in key destinations such as Sydney and Melbourne.”
“We are excited to be working with Hyatt to position the new Hyatt Regency Brisbane as the best premium upscale hotel in the Brisbane market,” said Paul Salter, managing director, Salter Brothers. “With our commitment to a new investment in this hotel, its excellent location, well-appointed guest rooms, atmospheric pool terrace with an infinity pool, and Hyatt’s renowned restaurant and bar offerings, we fully expect Hyatt Regency Brisbane on the Queen Street Mall to be the city’s hotel destination of choice for both business and leisure travelers alike.”
Situated in the heart of Brisbane’s central business district, Hyatt Regency Brisbane offers easy access to major corporate and government offices as well as a wide range of leisure, retail and dining options. The hotel is part of Queen Street Mall, a designated pedestrian zone, and is a 15-minute walk from the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, and approximately 1 kilometre from the South Bank cultural district. The hotel’s central location enables guests to readily visit entertainment precincts such as Brisbane Live and the new Howard Smith Wharves on the waterfront, attractions like the Museum of Brisbane and Brisbane City Markets as well as the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens.
The refurbishment will enhance Hyatt Regency Brisbane’s existing features which include 292 well-appointed guestrooms with modern décor, bathrooms with walk-in showers and business-centric amenities, including comfortable workstations. Overlooking the lively Queen Street Mall, the outdoor 20-metre infinity-edge pool and bar on the fourth floor are ideal for unwinding after a day’s work or sightseeing. Other facilities include the 24-hour fitness centre, an all-day restaurant and more than 100 square metres of flexible function space.
