Hilton Brisbane Completes $37 Million Refurbishment
BRISBANE, Australia—Hilton Brisbane recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, marking the occasion by unveiling a completed $37 million refurbishment across the entire hotel. READER COMMENTS
In one of the single biggest investments made by any of Brisbane's CBD hotels, the hotel has spent more than $14 million since January 2011, upgrading every aspect of its facilities in a strategic move to attract both the corporate and tourism guest. In an announcement, Hilton Brisbane general manager Martin Kendall said the hotel opened on November 10, 1986 as the Brisbane International Hilton.
"We have been the longest running five-star hotel in Brisbane and we are also one of the most centrally located. Now with a revitalization of the entire property, we have one of the most up-to-date products available in the city. We are excited about what the future holds with our new 319 deluxe and executive rooms, a new flagship restaurant and bar; Vintaged Bar + Grill, which has recently been awarded a coveted Chef's Hat in the Queensland Good Food Guide, a state-of-the-art business center with three new boardrooms and a reinvigorated porte-cochere entrance which features Brisbane's biggest video wall with a three-meter by five-meter digital display."
Hilton Brisbane was originally designed by one of the founders of modernist design in Australia, Harry Seidler, and Mr Kendall said acclaimed designer Mark Landini who oversaw the refurbishments, was responsible for strongly communicating Mr Seidler's original vision.
"This is the only hotel Harry Seidler designed in Australia and Mark Landini has done a fantastic job re-creating some of Mr Seidler's original plans."
The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than $3 billion during a three-year period.
