Sleeping under six stars
In one of the four towers currently under construction at Queen’s Wharf, will be two new to Brisbane hotel brands – the four-and-a-half-star Dorsett and a first for Australia, the six-star Rosewood.
Destination Brisbane Consortium Project Director Simon Crooks said the collective offering of hotels within Queen’s Wharf would provide welcomed additions to Brisbane’s luxury hotel scene once complete.
“Queen’s Wharf will lift the benchmark for what is available to locals and the millions of visitors we are expecting to come to South-East Queensland in the coming years. Queen’s Wharf will have accommodation to suit everyone’s tastes right up to the ultra-luxury of the Rosewood,” he said.
“What I love about this development is that we are building something that everyone will enjoy – public spaces, a ballroom that can also be converted into multiple smaller function rooms, world-class gaming, four new luxury hotels for Brisbane and also dining and beverage outlets that will connect into all the towers.
“Whether you are looking to spoil yourself for the weekend, a venue to catch up with friends, somewhere to take the family or the best view of Brisbane – we’ll have it all here for people to enjoy.”
Multiplex Project Director Dayne May said construction of the Dorsett and Rosewood hotels’ tower was going well with construction already above George Street.
“By early next year the structure will be higher than the surrounding heritage buildings, which is a true indication of how well construction is progressing,” he said.
“We are currently working on the first level which outlines the oval shape of the hotel tower – all other levels before this have been part of the basement or podium levels.
“This building is also the first in the precinct where the shape of the structure is formed just above street level –The Star Grand Hotel and the Queen’s Wharf Residences will follow next year.”
Mr May said, “In early 2021, the first facade elements will be installed on this tower which would be a significant milestone”.
When complete all four towers will link seamlessly through the podium levels (all public space) but also at level 26 with the Sky Deck as the unique horseshoe design that connects all towers and provides stunning view lines up and down the river.
Rosewood guests will be able to access the Sky Deck directly from their hotel tower at level 26, also the arrival area for Rosewood guests.
