Brisbane Luxury Hotels

Best areas in Brisbane for luxury hotels

Sun-dappled Brisbane – the culturally-diverse, green-washed capital city of Australia’s Queensland state – celebrates upscale hotels and attractions. Stay in the sparkling central business district to be surrounded by glittering skyscrapers, shopping malls, and elegant restaurants. Fortitude Valley, just northeast of the center, sings with eclectic eateries, trendy boutiques, and cool wine bars – Brisbane’s buzzing Chinatown is here, too. The narrow peninsular just south of the arching Story Bridge is strung with luxury hotels, and provides a laid-back, tranquil atmosphere.

Top luxury hotels in Brisbane

The Hilton Brisbane boasts ritzy city center accommodation. This vast and immaculate hotel provides airy ensuite guestrooms with sweeping street views, a fine dining in-house restaurant, a rooftop terrace, and a shimmering outdoor pool. The Stamford Plaza Brisbane is another palatial, centrally located luxury hotel, boasting multiple in-house restaurants, a flashy fitness center, and exclusive valet parking. Capri By Fraser, meanwhile, is a futuristic silver shimming high-rise hotel offering enormous, sleek guestrooms decorated with elephant-grey fittings, an indoor pool, and a 24-hour fitness center.

Where to find the best fine dining in Brisbane

Brisbane’s cuisine scene brims with fancy fine dining restaurants. While the in-house restaurants of Brisbane’s luxury hotels are a great place to find high-end culinary delights, you’ll also find plenty of ritzy restaurants in the riverside Eagle St Pier precinct – from snazzy steakhouses to cutting-edge experimental cuisine kitchens. The South Bank area is another riverfront restaurant hotspot, boasting German, Italian, and Turkish restaurants. The affluent New Farm neighborhood is dotted with trendy and upscale bistros, blending casual settings with delicious California-inspired dishes.

Most unique things to do in Brisbane

Brisbane is based just inland from Queensland’s glinting Gold Coast – a stretch of sandy beachfront and rocky outcrops, hazing into the deep blue Moreton Bay. The Brisbane River, snaking through the city, extends out to the bay. To explore this paradisal landscape in total luxury, charter a private yacht along the river – many yacht charters offer up exclusive extras like champagne receptions and onboard catering. Fashionistas and splurging shoppers will love Brisbane’s Edward Street, where 2 key fashion centers – the Wintergarden and QueensPlaza – intersect. Here, discover designer jewelry and clothing stores – including Tiffany, Chanel, and Gucci. Adrenaline-seeking VIP travelers, meanwhile, can book a private helicopter tour of the city. For an alternative air travel experience, take a hot air balloon trip – with included champagne breakfast – over Brisbane’s surrounding, bright green fields and valleys.

Best ways to get around Brisbane

It’s quite possible and pleasant to explore central Brisbane by foot – there are plenty of wide walkways and riverside footpaths. Brisbane’s integrated public transport network of trains and ferries can come in useful, too – purchase a refillable Go Card for ticketing convenience. Taxicabs are a popular option throughout the city, and can be booked in advance or hailed on the street. For VIP transport, make use of your luxury hotel’s limo/town car services, which will carry you from sight to sight in total comfort.
