Aside from that, we noticed that the rooms are quite large. We're talking considerable. For a city hotel, where space is usually at a premium, all 191 rooms have an ample amount and, depending on which side of the hotel it's located, open up to beautiful views of the adjacent Roma Street Parklands, Brisbane River and mountainous hinterland.
Just like its opulent cousin, Traders takes the small details into account. Free WiFi throughout the hotel, in-room amenities, and thoughtful design all play a role in each guests stay. One of our faves, besides the WiFi, is a shower curtain panel that detaches from the full curtain to be cleaned with every housekeeping service. We have seen one too many moldy showers in our hotel stays and this is a nice feature.
As we said before, the hotel is not completely finished. In the next few months, guests will be able to cut the tape on a brand new restaurant overlooking the park entrance and the city-scape, a fully outfitted fitness center and an executive lounge for high-level Golden Circle and Club Room guests.
It looks like this might be a winner on the Brisbane scene since, currently, there is a drought for mid-range hotels in the city.
Rates start at $239 AUD ($250) per night.
