Tryp Fortitude Valley
Time Out says
The option if you’re in Brisbane for a good time, not a long time. Tryp’s rooms are a touch pokey but the hotel’s crisp furnishings and brilliant staff make the whole package excellent value for money (even if they need to chill out on the street art in places). Besides, you’re in the Valley — hitting the town is the main concern here.
For starters, the hotel is sandwiched between Chur Burger on the ground floor and a slick rooftop bar up top, but you’ll want to explore further afield. The James Street precinct is nearby if you’re keen to keep it civilised. Otherwise, you’re right in the guts of the Valley, its piles of cafes, bars and clubs sure to see you spend minimal time in your actual hotel room.
Time Out tip: Tryp’s own rooftop bar is excellent but nevertheless outclassed by Eleven, just around the corner. Boasting a one-of-a-kind, uphill view of the city, it’s your destination for pre or post-dinner cocktails.
