I've never been to Brisbane and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the hotel options. I'd like to stay in a hotel that is central and gives me good sense of what Brisbane is like. I'd love to know where locals tell their friends to stay when they visit, and why those areas and hotels are special. thanks!
Have a look on a google maps and find any accommodation between Ann St and the river is a great option as that is central Brisbane From there you can either walk over the bridges into Southbank or catch a City Cat (ferry) over.
