Central hotel, walking distance to bars & restaurants

Hi,

We are planning to stay in brisbane for 2 nights (a thursday and friday night) in May.

We'd like a centrally located hotel which is in walking distance of nightlife (restaurants & bars) Ideally no more than 1 mile away.

Budget is up to $220 a night.

We like modern hotels, if possible.

Hope you can help!

Thanks

Southbank is a good area for bars and restaurants - Rydges or Mantra.

If you want to be central in the CBD, places like Hilton, Treasury Casino, Sebel, Sofitel etc

It might just be a tad bit out of your price range, but also have a look at the Emporium in Fortitude Valley. So many good restaurants and bars within a few blocks and the hotel is an award winner:

Also have a look wotif.com/hotels/australia-brisbane-cbd-hote… to see what suites your budget.

I find most hotels in Brisbane to be handy to everything...my favourites are

Quay West Suites / Conrad Treasury / Stamford Plaza

sounds to me like Limes Hotel might be right up your alley - it and Emporium are probably considered the 'coolest' hotels in the city at present and both are in the Fortitude Valley entertainment precinct where all the beautiful young things go..;-)

Chesters Hotel in Fortitude Valley is currently ranked No 5. Good reviews. A short train or taxi ride into the CBD.

I recently stayed in Brisbane at the Hotel George Williams on George St(abeit for one night),was close to Roma Street and major centre of Brisbane as well as the casino.A nice 15 minute stroll to Southbank as well.Probably not one of the best hotels around,but found it comfy and the location was perfect for what i needed(concert at Exibition Centre).Feel free to read my review.
