Cairns’ largest 5-star hotel has rebranded to Pullman Cairns International as part of Accor’s expansion of the Pullman brand in Australia, following the acquisition of the Mirvac hotel portfolio. The move to Pullman will result in the city being home to two Pullman hotels, Pullman Cairns International and Pullman Reef Hotel Casino.

Specialising in conferences, trade shows, meetings, gala dinners, and boasting world-class facilities including 11 flexible event rooms, Pullman Cairns International will assist in bringing even more international business tourism to the region, as international travellers familiar with the Pullman name can rest assured their needs will be met.
“Now having two Pullmans in Cairns I believe it will have positive flow-on effects to business and tourism in the area, and I look forward to seeing the corporate, leisure and conference market which Pullman Cairns International already dominates in, grow as a result of our international branding,” saidgGeneral manager for Pullman Cairns International, Craig Syphers.
Pullman Cairns International is located right in the heart of Cairns CBD and only 8km from the airport. Built in 1987, the heritage-style hotel has 321-guestrooms which boast spectacular views of the city, harbour and mountains.
As the hotel takes on its global Pullman branding, it will be joining over 60 hotels throughout 21 countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and South America. In Australia, there are currently six Pullman hotels, with at least five more hotels primed to take on the Pullman name by mid-2013.
