Stayed here for 2 night stay with teaching colleagues to attend a conference. View of Botanical Gardens and out looking over the Gateway Bridge was awesome. It's a perfect location. Close to everything. Unit was fine. Pete Evan's new restaurant Asana was just around the corner .... Quick 2 minute walk if that and so close to city & QUT.... More

Have chosen this property for a few of our stay when we have to travel to Brisbane for work. It's always been 1 of my favorite as the price can be quite good however we noticed lately that the rooms are not as well maintained as before, scratches on the walls etc. Didn't take any photos while we were there...

Positives - location is unbeatable, you can walk to the Queen Street Market (with easy access to public transportation), Botanical gardens, river, etc. We stayed on the 29th floor and the views were terrific. The room also had a balcony with a table and chairs outside which would be nice to use in the spring/summer (it was a bit too... More

Stayed here in the first week of July 2015. I thought this place was great value for money. It's a short walk to the river, the Botanical Gardens and to restaurants.

We had a great stay - the location is great, close to the Botanic Gardens, Eagle St and the city centre. We were on a high floor and had great views. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again!

Very nice hotel, at least superficially, in the downtown area. Short walk to the botanical gardens and shopping areas. Washer/dryer in our room which was welcomed after being on the road for more than a week and needed to machine clean clothes. Where the property fell short was in two areas: the first, one of the clerks at the front... More

The room was nice although had a weird odour. Maybe overdone on the cleaning liquids. We were on the top/30th floor and it had great views of the city, river and partly of the Story bridge. There seemed to be a lot of noise from other rooms but it sounded like a Hens party was going on a couple of... More
