Ibis reopens in north Brisbane

After a closure of more than four years, the Formule 1 Windsor hotel on busy Lutwyche Rd in Brisbane’s northern suburbs reopened on Tuesday 1 April  – complete with a fresh new look and Ibis Budget re-brand.

The Lutwyche Rd hotel, part of Australia’s largest accommodation group Accor, was forced to close in August 2009 due to construction and the associated noise and access issues associated with the Inner City Bypass connecting the CBD to the Brisbane Airport precinct.

Chris Sedgwick, vice president operations Queensland & Northern Territory for Accor, said, “Despite the hotel’s April Fool’s Day relaunch, Accor is nothing but serious about showcasing the hotel in a fresh new light after so many years of being closed, and we’re very excited about the rebranding. We’re looking forward to waving good bye to Formule 1 and welcoming the hotel back into the Accor fold as the 20th Ibis Budget hotel in our Australian network.”
