A New Star at Portside: Alcyone Hotel Residences

June 30, 2017 Hotel Developments No Comments Email Email

An exciting new hotel development is confirmed for Brisbane’s thriving riverside hub at Portside Hamilton.

Named after the brightest star in the constellation of Taurus, Alcyone Hotel Residences will be a shining addition to the area.

The development is the latest project by award-winning, privately-owned property group, Citimark Properties, and responds to the demand for luxurious yet affordable accommodation in the riverfront precinct. Alcyone’s location is unsurpassed, with 44 outlets and restaurants as well as shopping and entertainment options in the immediate vicinity.

Australia’s largest privately-owned construction company, Hutchinson Builders have been responsible for the construction, which is designed by innovative architecture firm, Cottee Parker. Cottee Parker are responsible for such iconic developments as the Ritz Carlton at the new Queens Wharf Casino in Brisbane. As well as the hotel, the development will include a 500sqm vibrant retail and dining precinct on the ground floor, in keeping with the Portside lifestyle.

Alcyone’s exterior will be as striking as its name suggests; at a commanding 16 storeys high and featuring a dramatic LED lighting artwork that will gleam as the sun sets – the largest digital art display in Australia outside of stadiums.

Apartment interiors also boast plenty of natural light by day, with the central feature of floor-to-ceiling tinted glass offering park, city or river views. The hotel features 105 contemporary, spacious apartments, ranging from a 60sqm one-bedroom, one-bath unit up to a 78sqm two-bedroom, two-bath.

From the moment guests check-in, they will fall in love with the Alcyone experience. A scent by CocoLuxe Candles and fresh blooms will welcome guests, as well as relaxing music, a refreshing arrival drink and warm, friendly customer service. The Alcyone concierge team are also available to assist guests in making the most of their stay.

Enjoy luxurious in-room amenities with an ultra-local focus, such as Leif Australian Native bath products; and a mini-bar stocked by Newstead Craft Beer and New Farm Confectionery.

Executive Rooms also include a Nespresso coffee machine; the choice of a bread maker or fresh fruit and juicer, so guests can wake up to the enticing fragrance of fresh bread or an energising juice to begin the day; as well as a plush robe and Alcyone slippers.

A stay at Alcyone also includes free WiFi, a Pillow Menu, daily newspaper delivery, and complimentary secure car parking. A 24-hour room service menu is available; and guests can choose from a number of delicious breakfast options from Portside restaurants and cafes, with a charge-back service provided.

Professionals on the go may access the Business Centre with all the necessary conveniences; and when it’s time to relax, borrow an Xbox, games for the kids, or choose from the book library. Alcyone will also arrange a meat or seafood BBQ package for guests to enjoy in the Podium Level barbeque area.

Plus, guests can start their mornings with a reviving yoga session on the Serenity Lawn; or take a moment to look after themselves any time with the on-site pool and Fitness Centre.

The 4.5 Star hotel will service the booming cruise market, as well as tourists and locals searching for a getaway in this upmarket dining, shopping and lifestyle precinct located close to Brisbane’s inner-city.

Angus Johnson and Robert Pullar, the founders of Alcyone Hotel Residences and owners of Citimark Properties, expressed their delight and passion about the opening of the new Hotel:

“Our development team’s unrelenting pursuit of quality in creating and delivering this new Apartment Residences will shine through in the experience and appreciation by the residents and guests alike. We are focused on bringing to the market new benchmarks in living and ensuring the detail is felt. This same philosophy is followed through with our Hotel Management Team where individuality of service and the experience of our guests and residents is paramount.”

Alcyone Hotel Residences is located on Hercules Street in close proximity to the bustling Portside Wharf, Doomben and Eagle Farm racecourses, and all of Hamilton’s fashionable dining and shopping offerings. It is also situated just six kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD and five kilometres from the international and domestic airport.

The hotel is set to open its doors to guests from 14 August 2017. For further information, visit
