The Redezvous Hotel in Brisbane is a nice, solid hotel. It's well located in Ann St, a short walk from the CBD shopping strip and lots of resturants etc. This is an older hotel but it has been updated.
My room was on the 1st floor and when it rains there is quite q bit of noise with the rain hitting an adjacent roof. If you got a higher level room this wouldn't be an issue. The room was very clean (a. big issue for me) and when my room was made up the job seemed to have been done very well.
The hotel has two lifts and when I was here (Jan 2012) new lifts were being installed. So the management seem to be doing a fair bit in the wqy of upgrading. The carpets are fairly new and the room looks like it was recently painted. The bed is a nice new queen size and I slept very well on it.
The lack of a fitness centre and pool might put some off. The TV's in the room are decent sized NEC flatscreens with some cable channels plus all the free to air channels.
This hotel offers free local phone calls and 3 hrs per day of free internet access. There are no surcharges for credit cards (claimed on signs in the lift anyhow!). Not a lot of hotels do this. My work paid for my room so I can't state catagorically that these billing arrangements stand but hey.... they claim it!
There is a 24/7 mart about 30 meters down Ann St. so milk, cereal etc is easy to get. My room didn't have a bowl / spoon etc but (cheapskate) me packs one to keep the costs down.
Transport is fairly easy from this hotel. There is a railway station across the road. Taxi fare for me from the Airport to the hotel on a Sunday (extra tariff) was about $45.00 and took a little over 20 mins. On a weekday at peak time I'd allow 30 - 40 mins to be safe.
This appears to me to be a good solid mid range hotel. Not 4 star but not far off. The staff are very friendly and unobtrusive. I'd say give it a go!
