W Brisbane unleashes its five-star fantasy on the CBD landscape
There was a powerful man that once said, “You can have whatever you like” but for most of us this sentiment remains a mere pipedream. We’re all familiar with the fantasy of renting out a ridiculously baller hotel room and just going to town on the facilities in a binge of pure hedonism, but rarely is it possible to find a venue that would actually match up to these sky-high expectations. Well, folks, the game is about to change rather significantly. The Brisbane CBD is set to welcome a very fancy newcomer in early 2018 – W Brisbane is arriving to make your wildest dreams a reality.
Perched high at 300 George Street, W Brisbane is part of the Marriott International’s W Hotels family and will be the first five-star hotel to open in the CBD in 20 years. The bold and luxurious building will add three rad new bars and restaurants to The City’s dining scene, as well as 312 luxurious guestrooms and suites. The guestrooms will come kitted out with all of the luxuries you would expect from five-star digs – think fluffy robes (obviously), killer views, state-of-the-art electronics and even an in-room W Mixbar for cocktail hours any time. The W Hotels philosophy is built on guests having ‘whatever they want, whenever they want it’, so you best believe that W Brisbane will come through on a celeb-centric level of extravagance.
A sweet new hotel isn’t the only thing W Brisbane is bringing to The City – with it comes an extremely unique employment opportunity for one lucky punter. If you think you know Brissie back-to-front and could show visitors one heck of a time, consider applying to be Australia’s first W Insider. A concept created by W Hotels, the W Insider acts as a conduit for guests of the hotel to access the coolest, newest and most interesting happenings across fashion, design, music and more. As such, the W Insider is privy to a lot of goss before it hits the streets. Bit of a dream job, hey?
