We wanted to stay in a hotel pretty close to the city and the Suncorp Stadium and we picked the Brisbane Riverview - we got a room for a great rate on offer and it did tick the box as far as location was concerned.
From the outside, it didn't look overly special but as soon as we got in we were pleasantly surprised - décor was all Victorian Style, which did set a difference from the standard modern-hotels which look all the same. I was reading that the hotel is undergoing renovations and they will be completed January next year with the last two floors. We were given a room on the first floor and thanks to the special rate we purchased, we got a free upgrade to a river view room. Our room was one of the renovated ones and it looked lovely! Very romantic. Nice, big windows with panoramic view, black and white themed bathroom, retro-vintage wall art and a very comfortable bed. There was a pillow menu as well. Room and bathroom were very clean. The only thing that worried me was the traffic noise - being on the lowest floor, I could clearly hear the cars and trucks passing by as that road was quite busy, but we slept through without any issues. We were possibly very tired, so we didn't hear a thing!! We didn't have breakfast included, however we ordered some meals as room service. Staff was very efficient and we had it all delivered within 20 minutes. No other noise issues due to renovations, we barely noticed any movements from tradies etc.
Staff at reception and concierge was courteous and helpful as well, so definitely no complaints. It took us about 10 minutes to reach Suncorp Stadium and just over 15 mins to reach the city, so position was perfect also. If you are looking for a lovely hotel with a difference, I would definitely recommend the Riverview.
