7 Brisbane hotels you should check out

The hottest stays in Brisbane... at the hottest prices.

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and the third largest city in Australia... that's not what gets the visitors in, though. What does is the sunshine, the not-too overcrowded vibe and the fact that it's a gateway into some of Australia's hottest destinations. Literally.

Within a stone's throw is Surfer's Paradise and the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and further out, the Whitsundays and the Great Tropical North.

Of course, if you wish to stay in the city, there's more than enough to entertain, including the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Lone Pie Sanctuary, South Bank Parklands, Portside Wharf, City Botanic Gardens and Stradbroke Island. For adrenaline junkies, you can rock climb at the Kangaroo Point Cliffs or adventure climb Story Bridge.
