Keen to escape your home office? There’s never been a better time for a mini-break in the vibrant Valley precinct to immerse yourself in the amazing dining, entertainment and shopping options available with a plush hotel as your base.
 
Whether you want to splash out or save, here’s our pick of the best Fortitude Valley hotels and apartments for your next staycation:
 
Design-forward hotels


For Insta-worthy interiors and an uber-stylish stay, look no further than a designer hotel. Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments on Ann Street brings the couture king’s keen eye for style to luxe self-catering apartments. The fashionable décor paired with modern tech (we love the ghd hair appliances and in-room garment steamer) makes this hotel a great base for a weekend out in the Valley.
 
Located in the heart of all the action with cutting-edge design, high-rise apartment rooms, a heated U-shaped skyline pool with city views, indoor cinema, outdoor lounge, yoga studio and gym, FV Brisbane by Peppers on Brunswick Street ticks all the boxes for a slick weekend staycation.
 
With a striking façade fronting Constance Street, TRYP by Wyndham Fortitude Valley is an Instagrammer’s dream with street art from world-acclaimed artists set against heritage framework. If you can tear yourself away from the open-plan themed artist rooms or suite with an outdoor spa, head to rooftop bar Dirty Sultan for drinks with a city view.
 
Boutique hotels
 
For modern convenience and contemporary appeal, check-in to one of the Valley’s boutique hotels. Tucked away on Church Street, Alpha Mosaic Hotel Brisbane has deluxe rooms and apartments with an onsite bistro and bar and free access for guests to the nearby Valley Pool and Valley gym.
 
Located on Constance Street, Limes Boutique Hotel is another Valley hotel with a top-shelf rooftop bar. Choose from stylish deluxe or courtyard suites with free minibar and breakfast available daily. Plus, book your stay on Friday and Saturday nights to receive a complimentary drink that’ll get your weekend started right.

Opening late 2020 for stays from 15 December, the 146-room Hotel Indigo Brisbane Fortitude Valley will bring a fresh perspective for an urban staycation. We love the look of the rooftop lap pool and bar and the locally sourced amenities for the full Valley day-and-night experience.
 
Aparthotels
 
For the option of staying in or going out, book yourself into an aparthotel for self-catering convenience plus hotel service.
 
On Gotha Street, Cathedral Place is a social resort-style apartment complex with two outdoor pools, barbecue area and gym that’s perfect for a weekend with friends in the Valley. Central Brunswick Apartment Hotel, just a block away from the Brunswick Street Mall also has plenty of onsite facilities including barbecue amenities, a gym and heated spa and sauna.
 
With Spanish artist Joan Miro in mind, The Miro Apartments rocks the distinctive colourful aesthetic in its eye-catching façade. The fully equipped self-contained apartments on Robertson Street have everything you need for an urban getaway, while further down the street, Atrio Apartments boast fresh, modern design in its selection of one- or two-bedroom units with all the mod cons.
