SilverNeedle Hospitality has opened the Next
Hotel and Lennons Restaurant & Bar in Brisbane.
Next Hotel Brisbane and Lennons Restaurant & Bar
is located in Queen Street Mall, one of Australia’s busiest
pedestrian malls, in close proximity to the Queensland Performing
Arts Centre, Convention Centre and the scenic Brisbane River.
“We are excited to launch the first of our
flagship brand, Next Hotels, in Brisbane. This is also the first
hotel in Australia where guests, by downloading the Next App, can
use their smartphones as mobile keys for their rooms. In another
first in Australia, Next Hotel Brisbane provides a Samsung Galaxy
S4 phone in every room that guests can access as a wireless
hotspot when they are outside the hotel,” said Iqbal Jumabhoy,
Managing Director and Group CEO of SilverNeedle Hospitality. “Our
dedication to providing innovative service points to our
commitment in making time count for our busy guests.”
Another first is that U.S.-based fast fashion
giant Forever 21 is locating its first store in Australia in the
retail space of the Next Hotel building.
Lennons, as the hotel was fondly remembered
prior to being rebranded and redeveloped as Next Hotel, continues
its legacy as the modern restaurant and bar featuring Queensland’s
best artisanal produce.
