Hyatt returning to Queensland with Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square

Hyatt has announced plans for the first ever Hyatt hotel in the Brisbane area, marking the return of a Hyatt branded hotel to Queensland.

Located in the Woolloongabba suburb,  the Hyatt Place hotel is expected to open in 2023 at the $700 million South City Square precinct.

Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square hotel is expected to feature 170 rooms and include a rooftop pool and bar, a 24-hour grab-and-go food market, as well as a café, lobby lounge and fitness centre.

“We’re proud to work with Pellicano and Perri Projects to bring the Hyatt Place brand to Brisbane for the first time, marking Hyatt’s return to the Queensland market and into a dynamic and fast-emerging community,” said David Udell, Hyatt’s group president, Asia Pacific.

“Woolloongabba is a hotspot for major sporting, entertainment, tourism, commercial and medical areas in Brisbane, and we look forward to giving professionals and leisure travellers a relaxed, high-quality hotel experience within South City Square’s vibrant, inner-city lifestyle hub.”

When complete, South City Square will also be home to 850 architecturally designed apartments, a Readings Cinemas, a Woolworths supermarket, health and wellness facilities, offices, a childcare centre, as well as leading shopping, dining, cafés, and boutique retailers.

“For the first time in a decade, the city now offers a wide range of new luxury accommodation options, supporting our $7.5 billion tourism industry and record visitation to the city,” said Brisbane’s Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner.

“Making sure the city has high-quality hotel options is important for the city to ensure we can continue to secure major cultural and sporting events, conventions, plus an ever increasing lifestyle and leisure market.”
