Metro Hotel Ipswich International has been flood lit in the alternating colours of red, green and blue in the 12 days leading up to Christmas, lighting up at 6.00 pm every night.
Mayor Pisasale was on hand to officially turn on the lights last night, with the hotel’s central location in Ipswich making it a shining beacon for locals and tourists alike and bringing some additional Christmas spirit to the city.
Hotel General Manager, Ted Matthews said the Hotel played an important role in the local community to increase the attraction of Queensland’s largest regional city for both locals and tourists alike.
“As a vital member of the Ipswich community, Metro Hotel Ipswich International is keen to help foster a strong community spirit in the lead up to Christmas, and we believe turning the lights on in the colours of Christmas will make the hotel stand out on the Ipswich City skyline and add to the festive cheer.
“We are hoping members of the community will come to the hotel, have a Christmas drink at the bar or dinner at Platform 9, and enjoy the light show.”
Metro Hotel Ipswich International is also offering a Christmas themed buffet in its Platform 9 restaurant from now until December 20 for just $25 per person. The menu offers a hot selection including baked ham, roast chicken, baked sirloin with all the trimmings, as well as various salads and steamed Christmas pudding and pavlova for dessert.
