For the opening night of Mercedes Fashion Festival in Brisbane by Pacific Fair, we stayed at the Next Hotel, situated smack bang in the middle of the city. The location was amazing. You literally walk down the escalator onto the main shopping mall that is buzzing with life and just a short stroll down the road to Queens Plaza. The shopping and restaurants are in abundance with loads of little lane ways down the side streets housing urban cafes and cool bars.
The hotel was modern, warm and had a really great inner city vibe. I really loved how there were lots of little areas through the hotel where you could relax, set up your laptop, order a coffee and just relax (or do some work). There was everything you could possibly need from free Wifi, 24 hour gym, room service, pillow menu, a transit lounge and an awesome hotel App where you can customize your stay right from your smart phone. I thought this was pretty awesome.
Lennons Restaurant and bar was sublime with an amazing breakfast spread and great coffee. I ordered the Eggs Benedict off the menu and it was delish! There is also a rooftop pool terrace and bar where we had yummy cocktails after the show under cozy gas heaters and an awesome city skyline. I wanted to lounge by the gorgeous pool, but it was a super chilly night!
The rooms are super chic and comfortable. I felt right at home from the minute I walked in and really appreciated the open bathroom (which can also be closed) and allowed for lots of room to spread out. There was also a generous closet to hang clothes (always a major priority, right girls?).
The hotel amenities were Biology which are super scrumptious. I think the bathroom range really says a lot about the hotel and I was impressed by this quality selection.
I really loved my stay at Next Hotel in Brisbane. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are looking to stay in the city and do some shopping! To make a reservation simply contact the hotel here.
Lots of love xx
