I stayed here in Sept/October for 3 nights before a conference. I arrived on a busy late Saturday afternoon - the day of the River Fire festival. It cost me $700+ AU for the three nights (about $1000NZ ... the Saturday night was $400 possibly because of the Riverfire Festival?)
I stayed in a one bedroom apt at the back of the tower on the 29th floor. From the balcony I still had a pretty good view of the river (see pic). The lounge/kitchen area were fine, the bedroom fine. The selling point really is the terrace and the way the whole place opens up. The bathroom was very average.
The other selling point for this hotel is the location. 250 metres and you are in the Myers Mall or across the river at Southbank. Being in the city, it is very noisy all the time (I live in the suburbs so it's different from what I am used to). And in Brisbane in October it's blue sky by 5.30 am.
I would stay again because of the location ... but you do pay for it! (Last year we stayed on the beach in Waikiki at the Hilton for about the same price!! Waikiki ... Brisbane ... I know which I prefer.)
