The Abbey all-suite hotel apartment development was the first of its kind in Brisbane. It was designed to provide a 3 ½ star business style, short term suite style accommodation in the inner city at a time when there was a limited supply of accommodation of any kind. The apartment sizes varied from 38m2 to 45m2 and the development included pool and gymnasium facilities, as well as bar and restaurant with 2 floors of underground car parking.
