If you're the type of staycationer who chooses their hotels for the perks and extra inclusions, then you'll be particularly excited about an upcoming new addition to Brisbane's accommodation offerings. Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill is set to launch in 2024, marking the Swiss brand's third site in Australia — after Mövenpick Hotel Hobart and Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne both opened earlier in 2021.

If either the chain's name or its country of origin have you thinking of sweet treats, yes, they're part of the hotel's menu. For starters, Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane will celebrate chocolate hour every afternoon. Going on the Hobart setup, that's when you'll receive a free dessert — such as an eclair, brownie or truffle — when you purchase a chocolate-flavoured cocktail, mocktail or affogato.

Mövenpick's hotels all serve the brand's line of food and beverages as well, which means that Mövenpick ice cream will also be available.

Because Brisbane's own Mövenpick site is still a few years off, exactly what'll be on the menu hasn't been revealed quite yet. But the 15-storey, 96-room site will include restaurants and bars — as well as a 25-metre swimming pool, a fitness centre and conference facilities.

Victoria Park

Setting up shop at 447 Gregory Terrace, bordering Victoria Park — which has just closed its golf course and reopened as a huge 65-hectare public park — Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane will also sport an art deco look to suit its location. Spring Hill is one of Brisbane's oldest suburbs, after all.

With MAS Architecture Studio working on the art deco-inspired design, international design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates doing interiors, and the project — and a neighbouring residential tower — being delivered by development group Keylin, the hotel will include a two-storey foyer featuring eight-metre ceilings, marble columns and terrazzo flooring and intricate details, too. Plus, there'll be elevated gardens across its façade to create a cascading greenery effect.

And, each room will have city views as well — because chocolate hour won't be the only luxe feature here.

Find Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill at 447 Gregory Terrace, Spring Hill from sometime in 2024. Head to the Accor website to keep an eye out for further information.
