Accor is to open a Novotel hotel at Brisbane Airport.
The Novotel Brisbane Airport is currently under construction and is
scheduled for completion by October 2009.
It will be the second Novotel in Brisbane, the
first opened in 1995 in Creek Street in the heart of the central
business district. In recent years
Novotel has been selected for hotels at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi
Airport, Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport, Hyderabad’s new international
airport and close to Hong Kong’s airport. There are over 40 Novotels at
major airports around the globe.
The 156 room Novotel is being developed by
Kenlynn Properties Australia and is being built on an 8000sqm
block of land at 1 Airport Drive. The Novotel will be part of a
relatively new retail, commercial and recreational precinct that
will also comprise a DFO super-store, childcare centre, Woolworths
supermarket and a golf course. In addition to its convenient
address, the new Novotel hotel will also feature a roof top
terrace, gymnasium, lap pool and sauna, a lobby bar, a la carte
restaurant, underground parking and six meeting rooms to service
the needs of corporate clients in transit.
The design of the
hotel includes a six storey atrium and a dramatic, glass-ended,
cantilevered rooftop pool and recreation space.
President Australia, Simon McGrath said, “Brisbane Airport is much more than just an
airport, it is one of Brisbane’s fastest growing commercial areas
and the gateway to the Gold Coast and south-east Queensland.
Brisbane Airport currently handles some 18.5 million passengers
annually – a growth of 50% since 2003 – and is forecast to
grow to 33.3 million by 2029, making new infrastructure such as
the Novotel crucial.”
The Novotel Brisbane Airport will be the 23rd
Novotel in Australia and the 5th in Queensland.
