Accor releases fantastic footy deals as AFL Grand Final fever hits Queensland

With Queensland winning the opportunity to host the 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final at the Gabba in Brisbane on October 24, a bout of footy fever is spreading throughout the Sunshine State.

Accor has a selection of hotels conveniently located nearby and they’re calling all fans to take advantage of their winning rates for the event.

Less than 2km from the Gabba and enviably located on the southern bank of the Brisbane River, Mantra South Bank is offering Hotel Rooms for the grand final weekend from $235* per night (minimum two night stay – total spend $470*).

Or, stay at the vibrant ibis Styles Brisbane Elizabeth Street in the heart of the CBD, and just an eight minute drive from the Gabba, from $319* per night on the hotel’s ‘Kick-to-Kick’ package, which includes a complimentary room upgrade to a Superior River View Room, breakfast and a Sherrin AFL Replica Game Ball to take home.

For a dose of culture with your sports, stay at The Johnson Brisbane – Art Series for two nights and enjoy 15% off. Prices start from $347* per night in a Studio for the footy final weekend (minimum two night stay – total spend $694*). Set in Spring Hill just a ten minute drive from the Gabba, The Johnson takes its deign cues from celebrated Australian abstract artist Michael Johnson.

Understanding even well-planned trips can encounter hiccups along the way, Accor has updated its booking conditions to be fully flexible for complete peace of mind. This means travellers can make updates to their bookings with ease should their travel plans change suddenly.

Accor’s fully flexible rates are available at a huge range of Accor brands in Brisbane, including Sofitel, Art Series, Pullman, Peppers, The Sebel, Mantra, Novotel, Mercure, ibis, ibis Styles and ibis Budget.

All Accor hotels, resorts and apartments have also enhanced their cleaning protocols to ensure stays are as clean, safe and comfortable as possible. The company’s ALLSAFE cleanliness program protects guests and staff, while assuring travellers they can feel safe while staying with Accor. The program’s measures were developed with the support of Bureau Veritas, a recognised world leader in testing, inspections and certification services.
