Hyatt will open its first hotel in Brisbane, the Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square, with a planned ribbon-cutting in 2023.
Located in the suburb of Woolloongabba, just south of the Brisbane River and CBD, the Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square will be a cornerstone of the $700 million South City Square precinct.
The Hyatt Place is expected to feature 170 rooms and provide guests with a rooftop pool and bar, along with the obligatory café and fitness centre.
The surrounding area is already home to a Reading Cinema, Woolworths supermarket, health facilities and other shopping and dining retailers.
An underground train station is currently under development near the hotel, which will whisk travellers to Brisbane’s CBD in just three minutes, while Brisbane Airport is a 25-minute drive away.
So where exactly does the Hyatt Place sit on Hyatt's hotel hierarchy? Hyatt Place is a ‘select service’ brand aimed at business travellers.
It all the mod-cons needed for a restful and productive stay but limited room service options and less of the extra trimmings found in full-service hotels, such as onsite restaurants and spa services.
Breakfast is usually included in the room rate for all guests, and rooms tend to be on the bigger size compared to other similar chains.
