W Brisbane will offer 312 stylish guestrooms, including 29 suites, two Wow Suites and the Extreme Wow Suite (the brand’s modern interpretation of a Presidential Suite) all showcasing views of the Brisbane River.

The guestrooms are designed with custom furnishings and interiors inspired by Queensland’s heritage and laidback Aussie vibes.

Signature comforts will enhance the guestroom experience, including the plush W bathrobe, Bliss amenities and the famed W bed.

Guests can kick back with their favourite tunes amplified by state of the art Bowers & Wilkins Bluetooth speakers or Netflix on the 55’’ LED TV, before stirring up a cocktail from the in-room W Mixbar.

Complimentary Wi-Fi ensures guests are always connected.

The W brand’s iconic Whatever/Whenever service philosophy, will ensure guests at the hotel have access to whatever they want, whenever they want it (within legal boundaries of course!).

Signature Restaurant

The restaurant will open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, with an evolving seasonal menu featuring the best of Queensland and northern New South Wales produce.

The Living Room (W’s take on the traditional hotel lobby) evolves from a serene spot to relax or meet during the day to a lively hub in the evening with a dedicated DJ booth, or guests can re-charge poolside at the WET Deck with a swim, an Aussie barbeque and a range of smoothies.

At the hotel’s AWAY® Spa, guests can detox with a sublime massage, get a salon ready hair-do at Australia’s largest hair movement, Brisbane’s first Edwards And Co, a mani and pedi, facial or quick fixes.
