The 5 Best Hotels in Brisbane

1. Hilton

Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 3234 2000
The lobby, restaurant, bar, and guest lounge are under a bright and welcoming atrium (the highest in the country), and all accommodations provide extensive street views. Magnificent suites are twice the size of the standard rooms and the hotel facilities throughout are excellent. Great location for amenities, attractions, and transport.

2. Stamford Plaza

Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 3221 1999
Unrivaled for many reasons: its quiet, historic location that’s perfect for walking/cycling; the fact that most rooms directly face the river; lovable, old-fashioned décor; and the resort-style pool that overlooks the river. Plus the Stamford is only a two-minute walk from a ferry terminal, riverside bistros, and world-class botanic gardens.

3. Rydges South Bank

The main attraction is the South Bank setting, a marvelous riverside leisure and culture precinct packed with places to eat and drink, as well as art/performance centers, an extraordinary rain forest, and a tropical ‘beach’. Appealing guest rooms, too; all recently upgraded and many with balconies directly facing the river and city skyline.

4. Hilton Surfers Paradise

Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 5680 8000
All of the hundreds of rooms, suites, and apartments in this hotel’s two soaring towers are particularly elegant; some apartments offer up to four bedrooms and jaw-dropping views from the fiftieth floor. Best of all is the location: in the middle of the Gold Coast’s prime tourist strip and 200m from Australia’s most famous beach.

Modern, unpretentious, and more affordable than most, the impressive amenities here include a tennis court and sizable pool alongside a garden/barbecue area. Spacious guest rooms feature beach-inspired decor; many have been recently upgraded. The Novotel is convenient to an abundance of amenities, the beach (300m away), and a tram stop for Brisbane and the Brisbane airports.
