Rydges is set to open a new hotel in Brisbane in February 2016.

Located in the Brisbane Showgrounds precinct, the 208-room hotel provides convenient accommodation for visitors attending events at the adjacent showgrounds.

The hotel’s Six Acres Restaurant will offer a farm-to-the-table experience and The Paddock Bar, which overlooks the Showground, is destined to become a lively meeting place. The hotel will also have a fully equipped gymnasium and heated outdoor pool.

Rydges Fortitude Valley General Manager Matthew Hurley said the new hotel was an exciting addition to the group’s international portfolio that included more than 40 hotels and resorts across Australia, New Zealand and in London.

“We envisage the hotel becoming regional Queensland’s home in the city, bringing a new dimension in world-class service with a personal touch to an area known for its cultural heritage and agricultural theme,” Hurley said.

“The hotel’s positioning within the Showgrounds precinct and opposite the Royal International Convention Centre (RICC) lends unique appeal to guests wishing to stay and soak up the atmosphere at the many events and festivals held in the district throughout the year.”

Rydges Fortitude Valley, located at 601 Gregory Terrace, Bowen Hills QLD, is now taking bookings, with first guests to be welcomed from 9 February 2016.
