Now that home-schooling duties are over and WFH transitions back to office life, it’s time to start planning your next mini-break. Brisbane City is the perfect location for a staycation with sparkling night-time views of the river and skyline from your hotel room amid The City’s shopping, dining and entertainment precinct. So, slip on a lush robe, order room service, cue the TV and indulge in all the in-room amenities at these top City hotels.
