As Accor Hotels’ acquisition of Mantra Group gets the green light from the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC), the Australian-based hotel and resort operator has launched its first FV by Peppers property in Brisbane, opening in the city’s vibrant entertainment precinct Fortitude Valley.
The luxury hotel, which consists of 986 one- and two-bedroom rooms, is part of a $600m development of three new-build towers, with its design inspired by New York’s Flatiron Building.
Amenities include a heated u-shaped skyline pool with views overlooking Brisbane’s CBD, a moonlight cinema, yoga retreat, fully-equipped gym, and three private spa lounges. All-day dining venue, Six by FV, is located on the sixth floor and serves a New York-inspired menu.
Mantra Group Chief Operating Officer Tomas Johnsso, said: “We are proud to bring the Peppers brand to Brisbane and officially open FV today. Situated in Brisbane’s premier entertainment precinct, all apartments have full kitchens with state-of-the-art appliances, a laundry, separate lounge and dining areas and a private balcony with fantastic views of beautiful Brisbane.”
Tourism Industry Development and Minister for the Commonwealth Games, the Honourable Kate Jones, added: “[The] opening is a vote of confidence in Queensland’s tourism industry and sets an impressive new benchmark in Brisbane’s quality hotel offering.”
