Fantauzzo Art Series Hotel prepares for opening with new GM

The $100 million Fantauzzo Art Series Hotel at Howard Smith Wharves is preparing the final touches before opening next week.

Shaun Fields has been appointed a general manager for the flagship Art Series hotel, which will feature four distinct food and beverage outlets, a rooftop pool, bar, gym and three conference rooms.

He has more than 20 years’ experience in the hotel industry. After a stint in Perth at the Richardson Hotel & Spa, he relocated to Melbourne to join Accor as a general manager in mid-2016.

“We will be at the cutting edge of what is happening in the industry right now when it comes to in-room technology, but we need to keep the core values of what makes a good hotel experience at the forefront,” he said.

“We will deliver on this by creating a guest experience you simply cannot get anywhere else, in a location that is fast becoming an icon of the Brisbane landscape.”
