Rydges

Fortitude Valley

Rydges Fortitude Valley hotel brings a hip new ‘city meets country’ style of accommodation to the up and coming Brisbane Showgrounds precinct.

Located on the cusp of Bowen Hills and Fortitude Valley the well-appointed hotel sits across the road from the Showgrounds, the Royal International Convention Centre and the Old Museum and is a short walk to the Royal Brisbane Hospital, The Tivoli and the upcoming King Street.

Paying homage to its neighbourhood, the Ekka features subtly in the hotel’s décor - think cow and sheep pillows, carpet that is patterned like rustic country floorboards, old pictures of the Ekka and country scenes on the walls and a stunning Paddock to Plate menu in its onsite restaurant.

Other amenities include The Paddock Bar with views across to the Showgrounds and the slick and funky restaurant Six Acres, which is a foodie destination unto itself that warrants a visit even if you’re not a hotel guest.

A nice touch is the Schaerer coffee machine where, with the press of a button, guests get to help themselves to as many di Mandredi espressos, caffe lattes, long blacks or cappuccinos as they like.
