Lunch at the Sofitel

With the Easter looooong weekend about to begin, business has been very slow for the last week or so. It happens every year, Easter, school holidays, long weekends ... it all adds up to very little corporate travel and events are scheduled at other times to avoid these dates.

We've done our best to take advantage of the down-time. Last Friday it was Sushi Station for lunch, yesterday it was the buffet/interactive dining experience at Sofitel Brisbane Central. They have an Italian theme this month so there is a Maserati and a Vesper in the lobby of the hotel.

The sales team from the Sofitel obviously had similar ideas to us as we saw Jago (recently switched over from the Brisbane Marriott) entertaining a client as well as Georgina who came over and chatted to us.

As always, the food was sensational and there was no need for dinner last night!

Royal on the Park breakfast

Last week Adam and I were lucky enough to be invited in to Royal on the Park for breakfast with their new GM, sales manager and the team in reservations.

We've had a close working relationship with the hotel for many years now but they've had some personnel changes over the last year and we hadn't seen their recently refurbished rooms. It was great to meet the new team as well as catch up with a few familiar faces. And well, food is the way to my heart, so the breakfast invite was always going to be well received.

I was impressed with the look of the new rooms (pictured below), they were always one of the larger rooms in the city, but the new colour scheme seems to brighten the room and the new desks and TV's certainly make them feel more modern.
