Close to the South Bank, museum, art galleries, state library, performing art centre a.s.o. Peaceful location, easy access to puplic transport. Close to the main sport stadium, Suncorp Stadium. Just perfect for short visit to Brisbane.

I have stayed at almost every star level of hotel in the world and am not sure how this got four stars... maybe the other tower? It was in a great spot but the floor of our room had stains and some of the outlets didn't work. The blankets were clean and the showers were clean. There was no view...

Love the view of GOMA and the State Library. A short walk to anywhere you could want to go in Brisbane. Beautiful rooms at a great price. Breakfast buffet is a must do. Can't wait for our next visit when we hit the pool!

The location was perfect. The staff so helpful and very friendly. The room was a very good size. Perhaps could do with a paint job and the tiles in the shower updating. Otherwise very pleasant.Had a very nice breakfast at Montagues restaurant. Enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Easy to get to South Bank and the ferries.

Fantastic location, a very short walk to the museum and Southbank Parklands. Underground parking was included, and the restaurant isn't bad. There is a pool, but the main road passes just above, and is a bit noisy, so we never bothered stopping by. This noise is never heard from the room, unless you open the door. Overall this is just...
