Accor announces Brisbane Mövenpick hotel

Accor has announced plans to open Brisbane’s first Mövenpick hotel in 2024. The internationally acclaimed hotel brand will be located in Spring Hill, the city’s oldest suburb.

The 96-room Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill is being built in partnership with private development group Keylin.

It will feature opulent art deco inspired interiors, restaurant, bars, a 25-metre swimming pool, fitness centre, daily Chocolate Hour and other Mövenpick signature offerings. It will also include conference facilities with capacity for more than 100 guests.

Simon McGrath, CEO Accor Pacific, said “The elevated heritage setting of this hotel, and its art deco inspired design, is a perfect fit for Mövenpick, which has a rich history of creating culinary and hotel experiences dating back to the 1940s.

“Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill will contribute to the city’s vibrant culinary scene with an outstanding restaurant and bars, while masterfully blending the brand’s Swiss heritage with an unrivalled hospitality experience.”

The art deco-inspired design of the 15-storey hotel is the work of MAS Architecture Studio, with interiors by international design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates.

In April this year Accor revealed the second Mövenpick hotel would open in Melbourne.

This follows the launch of the hotel brand in Hobart in January 2021. At the time McGrath said “Accor is planning more locations for Mövenpick across the Pacific and we believe this premium brand will quickly gain recognition for its culinary and service excellence.”

Accor is a global hospitality group which has more than 5,200 properties and 10,000 food and beverage venues throughout 110 countries.

Before the second quarter of 2022 new hotels set to open include the Sofitel Adelaide; the Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer – official opening; the Mercure Melbourne Doncaster; The Porter House Hotel Sydney – MGallery; a new, as yet unnamed, hotel at 412 Pitt Street, Haymarket; and in New Zealand The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt.
