When you’re a frequent traveller, you quickly begin to learn what it is exactly that makes a hotel more than just a place to sleep once your day’s business is done. And the truth is, it’s the smallest of details that can make all the difference. So when the details are big, you just know it's going to be good.
Next Hotel Brisbane ups the ante when it comes to merging the perfect location with a slew of facilities that are convenient, high-tech and comfortable, complete with a name travellers know and trust.
Whether you’re off to Brisbane on business or leisure – or perhaps a bit of both – here’s a rundown of what to expect.
If it is business that brings you to this sunny northern Queensland capital, you’ll be pleased to know Next Hotel Brisbane is part our Hotels Plus Program – exclusive to Flight Centre Business Travel – which means you get extra bonuses and value adds to make your stay even more enjoyable.
Why We Love It
It’s a high-tech, inner-city establishment with style, the service is top-notch and business travellers can do business as easily as leisure travellers can play on the hotel’s doorstep.
We love that you can check in using the Next Hotel app, which is free to download and easy to use. Savvy guests can check in on their smartphones and then use their personal devices as a key to unlock doors, control room temperature, lights and entertainment. You can even arrange room service and a cheeky drink to be ready waiting for you, before you arrive.
There's also a self-service check-in/check-out option once you arrive, which works similarly to those at the airport – but instead, it's a room key that's dispatched.
Another huge thing we love that's just perfect for business travellers? Free access to a 24/7 In Transit Zone, where guests can use showers and sleep pods while before or after their stay.
