New boutique hotel opens in Cairns

The Benson Hotel has opened in Cairns after a rebrand and refurbishment.

Previously operating as the Rydges Plaza Hotel, the newly revamped hotel offers 56 rooms and rooftop pool bar with a Miami vibe.

“The restaurant’s all fresh, there’s new bar furniture, we’ve gone into a lot of detail doing the outdoor area,” owner Adam Adams told Tropic Now.

The Hotel will be affiliated with Choice Hotel group’s Ascend Collection.
