Hotel with car park & good links to roads South of Brisbane

Hi,

After exploring Noosa, the sunshine coast, and Fraser Island, we will be returning to Brisbane for 2 nights in August.

We are looking for a good hotel (4 or 5 star) in Brisbane that has somewhere where we can safely park our hire car. The hotel needs to have good links to the roads out of the city, so that we can drive South and explore the Gold Coast during the day and return to our hotel in Brisbane in the evening.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Many thanks.

Hi Jan

Most hotels in the city are close to the motorway which will take you south. Royal on the Park is a nice hotel with easy access to the motorway. It may be a bit easier to stay at Southbank - Rydges or Saville.

Cheers

from the city it is very easy to get onto the M1 which takes you to the goldcoast as it runs almost through the center of the city (it is known as the riverside expressway).

any of the following would suit your needs - but be aware that most inner city places will charge for parking.

Stamford Plaza (best in brisbane) - drive straight up beside the gardens to get to the M1

Saville Southbank (upmarket apartment hotel which also has a very good restaurant.) follow grey street onto vulture and straight onto the M1)

Sofitel (down edward street and up beside the gardens to get onto the M1)

Another one that might be worth considering is Quay West. This is an apartment hotel located on Alice Street overlooking the botanical gardens. When you pull out of the driveway and turn right Alice Street will take you directly onto the Riverside Expressway which becomes the M1 and takes you to the Gold Coast.
