The Marco island hotel is open until midnight tonight.
It is the first hotel in Queensland to stay up all night.
It was opened by Queensland’s new governor, Andrew Barr, last year.
But it has been closed since the coronavirus scare.
The Marcos owners have been forced to make do with an outdated computer system and have to keep a close eye on guests to make sure they are safe.
The state government said last week it was considering how to reopen the hotel, which was designed to look like a hotel in the middle of the night.
A spokesman for Mr Barr said the hotel was not on lockdown.
“It is not a lockdown situation at the moment and the Queensland Government is making sure we’re getting the best security in place,” he said.
Mr Barr was elected governor in October and has a mandate to reopen state-owned properties.
The government has said it will review the hotel in coming weeks, after a meeting with the owners last week.
Mr Yarra said he was grateful the hotel had been opened for the night because it had been a long time since he had been to the hotel.
“I’ve been to a lot of hotels but I’ve never been in one of those before,” he told 7.30.
“This one is a real special spot for me.”
