Filed under Uncategorized

Following a multi million-dollar rooms refurbishment Sofitel Brisbane Central offers a new level of luxury accommodation for Brisbane city. A visual landmark on the city horizon, the luxurious yet minimalistic interior of the hotel lobby has been replicated throughout each of the guest rooms. All 433 rooms including 81 Club rooms, and 21 luxurious Suites have undergone a makeover of impressive proportions.

“We’re the largest luxury hotel in the city and our clients demand a high level of service and surroundings. When I arrived at the property in 2012 the owners and I identified that our rooms provided an opportunity to enhance our offerings and create a unique product for the business and leisure market”, says Marcus Hanna General Manager for Sofitel Brisbane Central.

“We commenced the process mid last year and I’m pleased to announce that all 433 rooms of the property have now been completed, with the Prestige and Opera Suites undergoing complete remodelling. Our design concept focused on infusing French elegance with elements of our local heritage, and has resulted in a fresh and sophisticated décor, whilst still reflecting traditional French design influences throughout all room types”, adds Hanna.

New finishes, furniture, lighting and technology ensure both the business and leisure traveller are well catered for throughout a variety of room types. All rooms access wifi and are provided with a dedicated data connection. Bedrooms have been appointed with sensor operated LED reading lamps, integrated bed heads and additional LED floor lamps, adhering to the hotels best practice sustainability principles.

Local design group DBI Design worked closely with Sofitel to create the collection of room types using a variety of tone and décor. Superior rooms are embellished with peacock inspired highlights whilst Luxury, and Luxury Club rooms boast a richer regal feel with velvet and plum accents. Junior Suites shimmer in luxury with silver and warm grey colour palettes layered with textured fabrics in duck egg blue.

The Prestige and Opera Suites exude a warm palette of mulberry accents, deep garnet and champagne with furnishings from B+B Italia, Max Aalto and Mooi. The Suites boast a homely feel reminiscent of a chic European apartment. The tasteful colour palette has been incorporated into the floor coverings, upholstery and soft furnishings with even the smallest of touches such as the internal desk draws reflecting the colour theme of the room.

A unique art concept has been adapted throughout celebrating the Sofitel global philosophy of combining old world heritage with modern local culture. DBI Design commissioned a stunning photographic collection, which features throughout each room of the property and showcases Parisian landscapes alongside iconic Brisbane landmarks.

The popular Opera Suite has been completely remodelled during the refurbishment project and now sprawls across one level, on floor 28 of the property. The lounge space of the suite leads off to the discreet powder room, with an en-suited bedroom unveiled behind large sliding panels decorated with spectacular designer wall coverings.

A grand ensuite incorporating a stone bath and vanity basins, rain head showers and dressing area offers the finest in imported European finishes by Arper and Fantini, with tapware created by famed Japanese designer Naoto Fukusawa.

State of the art surround sound, iPod and iPad connectivity and intelligent lighting, AV interface controls and electronic black out blinds ensure the tech savvy are simply a click away from their IT needs.
