Brisbane The River City

The city of Brisbane on Queensland's east coast of Australia is a fantastic place to visit. The weather is consistantly beautiful, the river provides energy to an economically strong and growing population and the city has everything in it that residents or visitors could possibly want.

Having travelled the world i believe Brisbane offers the vibrancy to rival Seattle, the climate better than LA, the visual beauty of San Francisco, a culinary range that aspires to Paris and a positive economic future that is not far behind Silicon Valley.

Brisbane is an alfresco city, where every opportunity is taken to spend time outdoors. Walking,biking,dining,running,playing sport and barbecuing as close to the river as you can get.

There are a few hotels in Brisbane that provide a very high standard,the Emporium in Fortitude Valley would be one that comes to mind for those who like modern but the Stamford Plaza Brisbane is undoubtedly the finest hotel in the city.

This tends to be reflected in room prices as you should budget between $200 and $500 per night to stay here though prices can dip below $200 on occasion. The location fronting the Brisbane river gives all guest rooms a panoramic river view.

The Brasserie on the River is the best of the onsite restaurants for breakfast and high tea,as you can enjoy the riverside terrace on a nice day. It also offers a seafood buffet alongside it’s extensive dinner menu. Kabuki is an authentic Japanese restaurant onsite at the Stamford Plaza Brisbane with a diverse menu and the Pavilion Bar specialises in grilled steaks.

The Stamford Plaza Brisbane’s general decor and elegance set it apart from it’s city peers and it’s location is difficult to beat, in the heart of the CBD, a 5 minute stroll to the Eagle Street Pier and Riverside precinct alongside the river and a 5 minute stroll the other way to the hubub of the Queen Street mall and the delightful Brisbane Arcade
