If you’ve ever stayed at a W Hotel, you’ll know its signature schtick: bold design, quirky details, high-energy service and a sense of fun. Born in New York City, the buzzy hotel chain boasts over 70 properties worldwide. And now, Brisbane has become home to Australia’s only W property.
Just opened to guests, the central city location nestled on the banks of pretty Brisbane River offers both convenience and cool-factor. Communal spaces are wide open and eclectically decorated with furnishings you’ll wish you could sneak home with you. We particularly love the bright and breezy Three Blue Ducks restaurant with its sweeping views of Brisbane’s South Bank (and its insanely good buffet breakfast). Oh, and that black-and-white tiled swimming pool and the WET Deck bar, which is an Instagrammer’s dream and set to become a destination in its own right.

All guest rooms are brightly furnished and feature all the modern tech you’d expect. The metal bath tubs (a fun nod to the Aussie outback) beg to be soaked in, while signature W amenities from the famous Bliss Spa remind you of the hotel’s NYC roots. There’s even a GHD to make sure your ‘do is photo-perfect before hit Brisbane’s bar scene. It’s the ideal spot for a girls’ weekend away.
