In a move representative of the future of Brisbane’s accommodation market, last week saw Mantra Richmont Hotel open its doors. Its location in Kennigo Street in Brisbane’s Spring Hill, means it is close enough to the city to enjoy the vibrancy of the CBD and yet provides personalised, boutique accommodation.
The new build hotel embraces a fusion of the past and the present, with modern design and stylish finishes complemented by the historic charm of Kennigo Social Restaurant & Bar, opening in the latter half of 2016.
The 110-room boutique hotel is representative of Brisbane city’s surge of urban expansion – fuelled by the corporate traveller market. Developed by Richmont Holdings, it is the first project undertaken in Australia by the Malaysian-based company.
Ideally positioned for the business traveller, Mantra Richmont Hotel has quick access to the airport and is only minutes from the CBD and Fortitude Valley. Brisbane Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk said the new hotel would help fill a niche market in the city’s hotel sector.
“While the demand for hotel rooms in Brisbane continues to grow in key segments like leisure and events travel, there is growing demand for strategically-located accommodation for the business traveller,” Cr Quirk said.
