The Gold Coast’s most luxurious and prestigious hotel named

The Star Gold Coast has been named Queensland’s most luxurious and prestigious place to stay and dine at the Queensland Hotels Association Awards for Excellence.

The recently refurbished hotel celebrated its first award-win since the completion of one of the most comprehensive and highest value hotel refurbishments ever undertaken in Australia, earning the title of Best Deluxe Accommodation.

The Star Entertainment Group managing director Queensland Geoff Hogg said the state-wide awards were a huge honour, shining the spotlight on the evolution of one of Queensland’s most iconic destinations.

“Having played a pivotal role in shaping the face of the Gold Coast for the past 32 years, we have committed to remaining true to our Coastal roots while continuing to bolster Queensland’s hospitality and tourism industries to ensure our state remains the premier tourism destination in Australia,” Mr Hogg said.

“While the award-wins are testament to the work we have completed to date, they wouldn’t be possible without an incredibly talented team of dedicated and hardworking individuals who come to work with a passion for excellence.

“It’s their drive that continues to deliver the highest quality products and exemplary service to the more than one million people who stream through the property’s doors each year, and we look forward to continuing to deliver on our promise to deliver unique and inspiring experiences for our guests.”

More than 50,000 square metres of wallpaper, 180 kilometres of electrical cable, and 424,940 man hours contributed to the revitalisation of The Star’s 596 recently refurbished hotel rooms.

Mr Hogg said The Star’s latest award-wins demonstrated strong confidence in the property’s capital investment program.

“Through the recent redevelopment, we have embraced our coastal lifestyle, opened up the existing property to celebrate our sub-tropical climate and created an array of premium experiences that are reflection of the Gold Coast coming of age,” he continued.

“We really wanted the refurbished rooms to be a place where guests could feel at home, while also experiencing the luxury of a five-star hotel and the excitement of being on holidays, so it’s fantastic to see that recognised by the peak industry body for the hotel and hospitality industries in Queensland.”
