IHG Hotels & Resorts has introduced the voco brand to Brisbane with the opening of voco Brisbane City Centre.
Marking only the second voco for Queensland, voco Brisbane City Centre offers 194 guestrooms, a rooftop pool, 24-hour fitness centre and flexible venue Kraft & Co that transforms from a cafe during the day into a lounge bar at night.
The hotel also offers 1,200sqm of event space across 11 sustainably focused meeting and function spaces from the Grand Chelsea Ballroom (opening mid-June) which can host up to 600 guests for a conference, to the more intimate meeting and board rooms that are scattered throughout the property.
And continuing with voco’s commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly approach, voco Brisbane City Centre’s conferencing spaces have been named after Queensland’s National Parks to pay homage to the locations that are home to many Australian native birds and wildlife.
“Brisbane is certainly putting the heat on its traditional rival cities! 2022 has kick started an era of strong growth with brand new experiences for locals and visitors in Brisbane – and voco is no exception, with the opening of the new voco Brisbane, and with Hotel Indigo’s city debut to open soon,” said Matthew Tripolone, managing director, IHG Australasia & Pacific.
“Since launching in Australia in 2018, the voco brand has seen tremendous enthusiasm, taking off in new cities across Australasia and the globe – including Melbourne and Auckland this year alone – with its expansion happening at a faster pace than any other IHG brand.”
