Top inner-city Brisbane delegate stays
If you're attending a conference close to or in the Brisbane CBD, you'll want an easy accommodation option to match. Here are five of Brisbane's best-suited hotels with plenty of cultural, dining and entertainment experiences right on their doorstep.
Hotel Jen is a favourite among business travellers thanks to its location near Brisbane's transport hub, the Roma Street Transit Centre. The 4.5-star hotel has all the necessities for modern business travellers – complimentary wi-fi, a 24-hour gym, designer rooms, and an outdoor pool and spa.
Pay a visit to Level 5 where you'll be greeted with stunning views, an organic chef's garden and beehives. And don't miss out on trying the local produce for yourself at Jen's Asian fusion NEST Restaurant and Bar – we recommend the signature Honey Collins cocktail.
NEXT Hotel won Innovation of the Year Award at the Gourmet Traveller 2015 Australian Hotel Guide Awards thanks to its high-tech offerings and smart spaces. Using the hotel's complimentary wi-fi, delegates can download NEXT's smart app to set mood lighting, adjust room temperature, surf channels and more. It's smack-bang in the middle of the CBD on the Queen Street Mall, and atop the high-rise is a rooftop pool and bar for when the day's work is done.
Hotel Grand Chancellor Brisbane has a great corporate experience on offer, with a rooftop pool and a good hotel gym for those wanting to keep up the fitness regime while on the road. Rooms are spacious and serve up views of the city, Brisbane River or the Roma Street Parkland. Speaking of which, it's a quick stroll through the parkland to trains and buses.
The name needs no introduction but the location, right on the Queen Street Mall, is everything a delegate could hope for. The hotel's restaurant, Vintaged Bar + Grill, offers a plethora of delightful food options. Central Station is a few minutes away and if your conference is at South Bank, simply walk straight up the mall and across Victoria Bridge to the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Pullman Brisbane King George Square is one of the city’s prestigious 5-star offerings. Just across the road from City Hall and King George Square’s underground bus terminal, rooms are chic and large, and there is plenty of desk space for those who need to plug in and keep working. But it’s not all business, with modern Australian cuisine at Bistro Allure and KG Bar offering plenty of reasons to relax.
