Hotels in the upper range ($220 plus per night) congregate around the CBD and Southbank. While most hail from the premium chains, those who prefer to rest their heads in funky and individualistic surrounds should head to one of the boutique hotels.
A wider range of Brisbane hotels are priced in the mid-range ($120-$220 per night). For this price you can expect to choose from a variety of locations, either old or new buildings and with private bathroom facilities.
Whilst these days a decent budget hotel (less than $120 per night) teeters on the edge of extinction, you can usually snaffle a good deal on a midrange hotel on weekends or last minute – try contacting them direct and bargaining or check out a last minute site such as Wotif.
For something different there are a few heritage buildings which have been converted into charming apartment hotels with self catering facilities for the same price as a conventional mid range hotel room.
