sage hotelSilverNeedle Hospitality has announced the launch of the new Sage Hotel James Street in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. The newbuild property will offer 93 rooms across four levels, along with a coffee shop, restaurant and boutique wine cellar. It will be part of the Queens Arms pub redevelopment, with the adjoining iconic drinking house revitalised with a “substantial makeover” at the same time, under the oversight of property developer Pacfica.

“After an extensive operator selection process, Sage Hotels was chosen as the winning brand,” said Pacifica managing director Russell McCart. “The team at SilverNeedle have an entrepreneur mind-set with a business philosophy and vision of understanding cohesive integration of smart technology that can enhance the accommodation experience. These fundamentals are best aligned with our vision for the future,” he added.

Technology will be a strong feature of the hotel which will offer guests complimentary in-room wi-fi as well as mini bar offerings comparable to those available in local convenience stores and laundry services at “street pricing”. The development is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2017.
