Fodor's Review

Surrounded by Brisbane's famous South Bank Parklands and Cultural Precinct, within walking distance of numerous attractions, this hotel is an excellent choice if location's your focus. There are eight styles of accommodation on offer, from standard guest rooms to family suites. Completed in 2012, the Podium Level boasts a sparkling swimming pool, bar, and fine-dining restaurant, Bacchus; while the hotel's rooftop kitchen on Level 12 does an excellent buffet breakfast (with views to match). Rooms are fitted out with sleek, earth-tone furnishings, and all offer cable TV, workstations with Wi-Fi, and kitchenette facilities. Work up a sweat at the on-site gym, spa and sauna (open daily 6 am–10 pm), or meander down to South Bank's famous artificial beach and lagoon area.
