We were so excited to be invited to the official opening of the brand new Holiday Inn Express Brisbane Central hotel. And wow, do they know how to throw an amazing party!
On arrival we were greeted by their fabulous team, and we had our photographs taken on their media wall and offered champagne & wine. The event was emceed by Ash Bradnam from Nova 106.9 and our Lord Mayor Graham Quirk officially opened the hotel, stating that “The Holiday Inn Express is a welcome addition to the Brisbane’s hotel infrastructure and will complement the city’s booming tourism and major events programs”.
The celebrations continued throughout the evening with live entertainment as the room was filled with a lavish crowd of corporate guests & VIPs.
We were in heaven with the endless servings of their scrumptious food which was prepared by Celebrity Chef Ben O’Donoghue from Billykart. We were also captivated by the design of the hotel – which was stylish without being pretentious, and we fell in love with the bright and sunny jovial colours.
We went on a tour to view their rooms, and the hotel is truly an innovative place to stay for smart, savvy travellers, hence why their use their hashtag #staysmart
