Brisbane Airport vicinity
Looking for the convenience of a top hotel near the airport and the CBD? The Pullman Brisbane Airport hotel is it. Lavish five-star luxury literally on the airport’s doorstep. And you’re going to love the resort-style pool terrace.
Many five-star hotels are in the CBD, close to attractions, entertainment, nightlife and shopping. The Point Brisbane in Kangaroo Point with a rooftop bar is where you’ll want to sip on sundowners and drink in the river views. If pampering is part of your itinerary, consider the Westin Brisbane with its on-site spa. It’s also within walking distance of the City Botanic Gardens.
Sometimes you want to stay on the outskirts, away from the city lights. New Farm is a riverside suburb about 2km from the CBD, one of the oldest in Brisbane and dotted with heritage sites. For luxury accommodation, you can’t go wrong with Spicers Balfour Hotel, an award-winning boutique hotel that features a Vietnamese restaurant, and a rooftop bar as well. The Calile Hotel in Fortitude Valley is another stylish place to stay, complete with resort-style pool, and surrounded by some of Brisbane’s most fashion-forward boutiques and eateries.
Attracting visitors from all over the world, the cultural precinct of South Bank is also home to several great hotels. If you’re the type who likes to stay fit while on holiday, The Hilton Brisbane has a gym and tennis court. Then there’s The Emporium where luxury accommodation includes poolside cabana suites (piña coladas anyone?). The hotel also certainly capitalises on the views over the river, city and beyond.
