The Mercure Brisbane is situated next to the Brisbane river and nearby Queen St, the main shopping mall of Brisbane. It is also a close walk across the river to the Southbank area. Finding the hotel is easy and there is plenty of parking available, with reasonable parking rates.
Upon arrival, check in was easy and I was up in my room in no time. The room had a view of the river and was quite large. There's plenty of space to store luggage and a desk area large enough for working on. There are several power points located nearby so charging multiple electronic devices is easy. The bed was on the soft side however it still allowed for a good nights sleep. The air conditioning unit works well in the Brisbane heat with adjustable temperature and fan speed, although the high speed is quite loud. The bathroom is large with plenty of space, providing a tub/shower.
The restaurant provides a good breakfast. There are a few cafes around for either lunch or breakfast. Being in the CBD area, there aren't that many dinner options in the immediate area except around the Queen St mall. There is a small open roof top pool to cool down in summer but the gym is contracted to a nearby facility.
With its location near the motorway, you may want a higher room if getting a room with a river view to reduce noise. But, it is its location near to the motorway and on the edge of the CBD that makes it very convenient for accessing Brisbane and the nearby suburbs whether it is for leisure or business.
Overall, a pleasant 2 night stay and I'd definitely consider the Mercure again next time I'm in Brisbane.
