We’re in a celebratory mood, and we’re not the only ones, We recently got to spend some time and kick back and take in the fresh new digs at the Brisbane Marriott, Who are gearing up to celebrate their 21st birthday and their recent 20 million dollar refurbishment.

The rooms are nicely appointed with all the creature comforts, grand bed heads, plenty of space and soothing earthy tones and textured furnishings that look amazing with that sunrise or sunset and all the tech inclusions for the modern traveller.
