NEXT Hotel Brisbane officially opened ahead of G20 Summit

SilverNeedle Hospitality has officially declared its flagship NEXT Hotel open in Brisbane, together with the Lennons Restaurant & Bar, a modern restaurant and bar featuring Queensland’s best artisanal produce.

Lennons was the name of the hotel in the NEXT Hotel building prior to SilverNeedle Hospitality carrying out its rebranding and redevelopment as the NEXT Hotel Brisbane.

Following a multi-million dollar redevelopment, Singapore-based SilverNeedle Hospitality adds hotel rooms to the city of Brisbane, which will host the G20 Summit next month. Located in Queen Street Mall, one of Australia’s busiest pedestrian malls and close to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Convention Centre and the Brisbane River, NEXT Hotel Brisbane and Lennons Restaurant & Bar are perfectly located to suit the professional and leisure needs of the business traveller. 

"We are excited to launch the first of our flagship brand, NEXT Hotels, in Brisbane. This is also the first hotel in Australia where guests, by downloading the NEXT App, can use their smartphones as mobile keys for their rooms. In another first in Australia, NEXT Hotel Brisbane provides a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone in every room that guests can access as a wireless hotspot when they are outside the hotel,” said Jumabhoy. "Our dedication to providing innovative service points to our commitment in making time count for our busy guests.”
In addition to the innovations mentioned by Jumabhoy, NEXT Hotel Brisbane can also connect calls for guests in Australia through their room numbers, even if the guest is not in the room. 

Another first for Australia was announced during the official opening - US-based fashion giant Forever 21 is locating its first store in Australia in the retail space of the the NEXT Hotel building.
