Another High-End Hotel Opens in Brisbane CBD

Art Series Hotels have opened their new art-inspired offering at Brisbane’s latest hotspot, Howard Smith Wharves, reports the


The $100m flagship hotel,“Fantauzzo” has been carved into the cliff underneath the Story Bridge, and is set to provide guests with incredible Brisbane River views.


The six-storey, 166-room luxury hotel is the latest of a string of new accommodation to open around the city. 


Earlier this year, The Canberra Times reported that in the past four years, an average of over 1200 new rooms per year has opened in Brisbane. Since 2014, 24 new hotels have opened which may have been driven by the infrastructure reductions Brisbane City council offered to four and five-star hotel developers.  


The Queensland Hotel market is the busiest in the country with $486 million in investment, according to a recent Colliers International report on hotels. 


Tourism Accommodation Australia chief executive Carol Giuseppi (now ex) told The Urban Developer that local hotel groups, such as Art Series Hotels, are seeing a change in tourism demographics and using that to their full advantage. 


“Cities such as Brisbane and Perth will experience a doubling in their international-standard hotel stock which will enable them to cater for a vast increase in tourism, conferences and events and deliver a major economic boost to compensate for the softening of the resources sector.”


The Fantauzzo Hotel is part of a major refurbishment the 3.43 hectare, $110 million Howard Smith Wharves site, which will include; 2.7 hectares of open public space, function space to accommodation 1000 people, and a variety of food and beverage establishments.
