Hotel updates: Major refurbs in Brisbane and Sydney
City centre hotels in Brisbane and Sydney have undergone multi-million-dollar upgrades.

Amora Brisbane’s $30 million revamp

The 296 room hotel in Brisbane’s CBD has almost completed a $30 million refurbishment of its rooms and event spaces. The full transformation is set to be revealed next month.

Amora Brisbane’s events floor offers 1148m2 of event space across 11 rooms. The largest space, the Lawson Ballroom can accommodate 282 people stand up or 200 for a seated gala dinner.

The refurbished conference spaces include the latest AV technology, installed by Microhire.

The outdoor pool terrace on level two of the hotel can also host 180 for cocktail events.

“We are excited to reveal our conference and events space as part of our $30m transformation,” said Amora Brisbane’s general manager, Tom Bloomfield. 

“Each and every detail has been designed and curated with purpose; to bring people together and we hope this will become a beacon for events in Brisbane where people and businesses alike can come together to experience Amora luxury service, be it to network, celebrate or simply relax.”

Novotel Sydney City Centre unveils $20 million transformation

The 283-key Accor property, owned by the Salter Brothers, on York St has undergone a major redesign across all of its rooms to debut a sustainability led product, which is the first of its kind in the Australian market.

The room design, created by Novotel’s designers in Paris, is called ‘Hypothesis’ is based on a less waste ethos – both for the environment and in terms of minimising wasted space and time.

Other sustainability initiatives include a digital compendium, digital access to amenities like room service, removal of single use plastics, sustainably-minded bathroom products from Deep Nature and recycling bins in all rooms.

Some suites have partial view of Sydney Harbour while other suites and balcony rooms have views of Wynyard Park.

“We want guests to achieve the balance they seek during their stay,” said general manager of Novotel Sydney City Centre, Kim Stredder.

“Room furnishings are flexible allowing guests to customise their stays. We have created an environment that’s ideal for corporate travellers, families and couples. This level of dynamism in design will allow guests to truly create a home away from home, and an office away from the office.”
