Marriott International says the new Westin Brisbane is the first of four Westin hotels still to come.

Marriott International has today opened the doors to the Westin Brisbane, the first time the wellness-focused luxury brand has operated in the Queensland capital.

Located at 111 Mary Street, the hotel’s inventory consists of 260 guest rooms and 39 suites offering floor-to-ceiling windows. Designed as a homely, natural city retreat, each room is also equipped with the brand’s signature Heavenly Bed and Lavender Balm.

Public facilities include Eden’s Table restaurant – the hotel’s signature dining outlet under the management of Executive Chef Steve Sweetman. The key dining venue serves up modern Australian fare with locally sourced produce being a key cornerstone of the venue. Guests can also enjoy the city’s first hotel swim-up pool bar, with the Nautilus dining outlet serving light snacks. Also open is The Charles jazz bar, serving coffee by day and cocktails by evening.

Another key pillar of the hotel is its wellness facilities. Five treatment rooms are on offer at the Heavenly Spa by Westin – two designed for couples. A steam room and relaxation pods complete the relaxation offering. Guests can also take advantage of the WestinWORKOUT Fitness Studio, while aqua aerobics classes will also be offered at the hotel swimming pool.

For Suite guests, the expansive bathroom features a walk-in shower.

For those keen on exercising outside, the hotel has also devised five and eight-kilometre running routes through the city which guests can also take by themselves or in scheduled sessions with the hotel’s ‘Run Concierge’.

Conference and meeting planners have access to 930 square metres of event space including a ballroom, boardroom and three meeting rooms.

Marriott International Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific, Sean Hunt, said the new Westin would resonate with travellers to Queensland eager to prioritise their health as part of their visit.

“This growing passion for well-being is fuelling the brand’s growth at a tremendous rate. In Australia, we have a Westin hotel in most of the country’s key capital cities – Melbourne, Perth and now Brisbane – with upcoming debuts in Darwin and Adelaide, and the first Westin resort in Coolum on the Sunshine Coast.”
