The agreement between the Hyatt Group Asia Pacific and South City Square developers, Pellicano and Perri Projects was signed last 30 April.

The Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square hotel will feature 170 rooms, a rooftop pool and bar, a 24-hour grab-and-go food market, a café, lobby lounge, and fitness centre

“We’re proud to work with Pellicano and Perri Projects to bring the Hyatt Place brand to Brisbane for the first time, marking Hyatt’s return to the Queensland market and into a dynamic and fast-emerging community.

“Woolloongabba is a hotspot for major sporting, entertainment, tourism, commercial and medical areas in Brisbane, and we look forward to giving professionals and leisure travellers a relaxed, high-quality hotel experience within South City Square’s vibrant, inner-city lifestyle hub,” said Hyatt Group Asia Pacific president David Udell.

“We’re delighted to work with Hyatt and benefit from its world-class knowledge and introducing guests to Hyatt’s first select-service contemporary hotel in Queensland,” Pellicano Managing Director Nando Pellicano said.

“Hyatt Place Brisbane South City Square will be the leading hotel destination for cricket and AFL enthusiasts, as well as those visiting for major entertainment events at our flagship ‘Gabba’ stadium.

“Whether you’re having a ‘staycation,’ or visiting from interstate or overseas, the Hyatt Place hotel will give guests the high-end, low-fuss, and enlivening experience we’re creating at South City Square,” Mr Pellicano said.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner was pleased with the latest partnership and said that Brisbane welcomes internationally recognised hotel brands such as Hyatt.

“Brisbane has emerged as Australia’s New World City, however, just five years ago we were forgoing 121,000 visitors every year as a result of a shortage in internationally recognised, full-service hotel rooms,” Cr Schrinner said.

“For the first time in a decade, the city now offers a wide range of new luxury accommodation options, supporting our $7.5 billion tourism industry and record visitation to the city.

“Making sure the city has high-quality hotel options is important for the city to ensure we can continue to secure major cultural and sporting events, conventions, plus an ever increasing lifestyle and leisure market,” he said.
