ADINA APARTMENT HOTEL OPENS IN BRISBANE

The new Adina Apartment Hotel Brisbane has opened in downtown Brisbane, housed in a restored heritage-listed building that was formerly the Queensland Government Savings Bank.

The banking hall has been transformed to accommodate a new hotel lobby and restaurant. The lobby celebrates the building's 1920s origins, with original timber-panelled walls and ornate ceiling roses.

The hotel overlooks the Brisbane River and is close to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Southbank.
