HOTEL REVIEW: Westin Brisbane

The Westin Brisbane is the new kid on the block in the river city and will not disappoint, bringing a touch of resort to the Brisbane CBD without compromising on style and sophistication.

Opened in November 2018, the Westin Brisbane has the perfect balance of business and leisure appeal, making it the ideal choice for your weekend getaway or business needs that can extend into a long weekend.

It is located on Mary Street and is part of a mixed-use development called Mary Lane, which will offer an array of vibrant dining venues and stylish residences, in the heart of the central business district.

The appealing location means guests are in the dynamic hub of the Brisbane CBD, just minutes from the Queen Street Mall, and in close proximity to many major corporate offices, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Botanical Gardens and much more.


The Westin Brisbane boasts 229 guest rooms, four dining outlets, health and wellness offerings and resort-style facilities. The best part of this property has to be the outdoor Nautilus pool area with infinity pool, swim up bar and cabana style seating area. You really would not feel like you are in an inner-city hotel with this resort like offering. It is the perfect place to relax for an afternoon drink and cool off from the Queensland heat. The hotel as a whole is tastefully designed with a funky, modern interior that uses local artwork from the surrounding region. Service by all staff members from check in down to room service was impeccable and what you would expect from the Westin standard. Like to stay active even when away from home? Then Westin Brisbane has just the thing as they have partnered with TRX® to provide functional training equipment in WestinWORKOUT™ Fitness Studio.


Being a new property, the rooms are immaculate. There are 13 types of rooms starting with the lead in Westin King Room and ranging up to the Premier Suites, which means you are spoilt for choice when deciding what room to take. These also vary on the view offerings – River View or City View. By no means are the rooms small, starting at 36sqm and are packed with everything you need to feel you are staying at a home away from home. A highlight is definitely the unique, award-winning Heavenly Bed with the turn down service including a small bottle of infused relaxing oils of lavender and chamomile called the Sleep Well Lavender Balm. Rub this on your temples or wrists at bedtime and you are sure to have a relaxing sound sleep. There are select Club Rooms that give you access to the Club Lounge and a host of benefits


The Westin Brisbane offers four dinning outlets all with their own unique offering. The Charles’ is an Aviation inspired Jazz Bar that transitions from café during the day to wine to cocktail bar at night. Located on the ground floor and open to the street, it is a great place to have a drink, socialise and watch the city life pass by.  Eden’s Table is the hotel’s signature dining venue and offers a live interactive kitchen to provide a truly personalised dining experience. Meals are inspired from locally sourced produce and off the Ocean and Paddock to the plate.  If you fancy a bite to eat while relaxing by the pool then head to the Nautilus Pool Bar and cool off with a fresh smoothie or a signature cocktail. This urban oasis’s all-day menu features locally sourced ingredients that fuel guests from sunrise to sunset. Room service is also available 24 hours.
