Hyatt has announced its return to the Sunshine State, with Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square set to open in 2023.
The 170-room property marks the brand’s first ever Brisbane hotel and its return to Queensland, since Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove was rebranded to InterContinental in 2012.
The hotel will form part of the $700 million South City Square precinct in Woolloongabba and will feature a rooftop pool and bar.
Signing the agreement in Melbourne ahead of the Australasian Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition, David Udell, Hyatt group president Asia Pacific, said Hyatt is proud to partner with Pellicano and Perri Projects on the property.
“Woolloongabba is a hotspot for major sporting, entertainment, tourism, commercial and medical areas in Brisbane, and we look forward to giving professionals and leisure travellers a relaxed, high-quality hotel experience within South City Square’s vibrant, inner-city lifestyle hub,” he said.
The new hotel is an exciting step forward for the Hyatt Place brand, which caters to guests looking for comfortable accommodation experiences to suit their lifestyles and familiar routines.
“The plans for Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square are part of our strategy to provide more offerings to travellers as we expand Hyatt’s portfolio of seven existing
hotels in Australia with new destinations across the country,” said Monika Dubaj, vice president real estate and development, Asia Pacific at Hyatt.
