I recently stayed at The New Inchcolm Hotel & Suites in Brisbane. It recently re-opened in November 2014 and still had that new hotel smell.
I loved everything about this hotel, and to the point that I’ll be hoping to stay here for all future trips to Brisbane. Unlike the Hilton or Sofitel in Brisbane, this is a very nice and modern hotel, yet the way they have renovated it, gives it a classic / New York loft style.
Check in was a breeze. As Accor gold I got upgraded to a deluxe room and one drink (odd, I normally get two but apparently M only do one – no big deal).
Really appreciated the extra touch of having the front desk escort me to my room and show me the essentials.
Our room was super hot – but it was also a horribly hot weekend in Brisbane (sitting around 40c) – and because I checked in at 9.30am – they moved me to a new room, so I can’t expect the AC to be on.
The room was sensational – lovely big open room. Heaps of light. Power points next to both sides of the bed. USB points. All things I love. Remote-controlled curtains and shade also a big plus.
Things I liked:
Wifi was only $10/24hrs which is great value – compared to Hilton or Sofitel – around $30-$50.
Vallet (though I didn’t use it) was only $40 – again, Hilton or Sofitel are $50-$55 per night.
Can’t wait to come back.
