This hotel might be successful when it is opened in 2018. The reason is that W Hotels have the power of brand names around the world, which is known for the luxury experience in the hotel itself. Furthermore, being the part of franchising chain by Starwood Hotels and Resorts, W Hotel in Brisbane has one of the key factors to be successful in the hospitality industry. In addition, W Hotel Brisbane has the advantage in term of the location, which will be located in the Central Business District (CBD) area that suitable for businessmen and travellers looking for a city environment. Moreover, this hotel has its own function for hosting business events, which attracts the visitors with business purposes. On the other hand, the opening of W Hotel in 2018 might also provide a lot of job opportunities for the local.
Therefore, with the advantages of the hotel establishment, a lot of people from the related industry anticipate the operation of this hotel.
