Hotel Description

You wouldn’t guess it when you’re lounging in a futuristic guest room, using the hotel’s dedicated iPhone app to adjust the mood lighting, but NEXT Hotel Brisbane has a history. Indeed, you’re not the only one who thinks the location — across from Queen Street Mall in Brisbane’s central business district — is convenient. This site marks the spot of General MacArthur’s Pacific headquarters during the Second World War, and, later, a glamorous landmark hotel that was knocked down to build another glamorous landmark hotel. Singapore-based hoteliers snapped up the property in 2013 and gave it a lavish makeover. Today, staying at NEXT in Brisbane is a little, like, well, staying in Singapore.

Take the check-in process. If you arrive early in the day, you can rest in a sleek Sleeping Pod, grab a quick work-out at the 24-hour fitness center, go for a dip in the photogenic 20-meter lap pool, or just use the wi-fi that’s complimentary throughout the hotel. When your room’s ready, talk to someone at the front desk, or do the job yourself at one of the flat-screen kiosks. Upstairs, you won’t find grand and over-the-top suites, but smart, ultra-modern, Asian-inspired mini-retreats, done up in crisp white, slate gray, and navy blue, with a smart layout that makes the most of each space. The customizable bed-bath floor plan, for instance, allows you to keep the bathroom area open to the room — nice if you’re traveling alone, or perhaps on a romantic getaway — or closed, in a more conventional style, nice if you’re on a shopping trip with your mom. The hotel brand’s signature mattress, gel-layered and pillow-topped, comes with your choice of pillows; kick back and surf the channels on the huge flat-screen TV using the hotel’s Smart App. Help yourself to the minibar while you’re at it: the first four items are on the house.

In addition to the casual NEXT Lounge and the poolside bar, where guest DJs take to the turntables on summery evenings, the hotel offers a few dining venues, Lennons Bar and Lennons Restaurant. The name pays homage to the hotel’s history — it was the amusingly named hotelier John Lennon who first opened a hotel at this address in 1884. We’re sure that was a great hotel, too, in its day — but we’re already on to the NEXT one.
