Four Points by Sheraton hotel opening in Brisbane city centre a "big boost for the local precinct"

Brisbane has welcomed its first international hotel in more than a decade, with Starwood Hotels opening its Four Points by Sheraton in the city centre.

State Minister for Tourism, Jann Stuckey, said it showed confidence in the sector, which the government promised to grow as one of the four pillars of the economy.

The Four Points hotel boasts 246 rooms and suites and is expected to contribute to visitation numbers by bringing thousands of guests each year.

The Newman government is aiming to double annual overnight visitor expenditure from $15 billion in 2010 to $30 billion by 2020.

Ms Stucky described the new hotel as "big boost for the local precinct" and that it was another step in the revitalisation of this part of the city’s CBD, which would see "significant redevelopment in the coming years".
