THE largest ibis brand hotel in Australasia is set to open its doors in Brisbane early this year.
Accommodation operator AccorHotels teamed up with Dubai-based Action Hotels to develop the 368-room ibis Styles Brisbane.
Located at 40 Elizabeth Street, the hotel will neighbour the Myer Centre and Queen Street Mall becoming one of the most centrally located in the CBD.
AccorHotels Pacific chief operating officer Simon McGrath says as well as being the largest ibis hotel in the region, it's the group's first newly built ibis Styles hotel in Australia.
"We are excited to be part of this key development for Brisbane's hotel sector in partnership with Action Hotels, and we congratulate them on reaching completion of the hotel build," McGrath says.
"The first ibis Styles Brisbane Elizabeth Street is set to be a flagship ibis Styles hotel for the region and we look forward to welcoming guests to the property by the end of Q1 2016.
"The ibis Styles brand has kept up with the changing expectations of consumers through design-led affordable quality hotels in the economy space and AccorHotels will continue to expand the ibis Styles portfolio."
Alongside ibis and ibis Budget, ibis Stlyles hotels feature individual designs, inclusive of continental breakfast and Wi-Fi
The addition is Action Hotels' tenth property, taking its total number of operating rooms to 1929. AccorHotels partners with the group on eight ibis hotels, with another three planned this year.
Mat Finch has been appointed as general manager of ibis Styles Brisbane, previously the general manager at Quay West Brisbane.
