The Calile HotelWhy we love it: A boutique stay in a vibrant neighborhood
- A prime location near designer shopping and trendy dining
- Serene spaces and design
- Full-service spa with holistic services
Away from the downtown fray that earned Brisbane its “Bris-Vegas” nickname, the Calile Hotel sits on leafy James Street, known as a hub of designer boutiques, lifestyle shops, and tiny lanes that lead to hidden bars and restaurants. Despite its size (it’s got 175 rooms), the property exudes a calm, boutique vibe, thanks in part to its streamlined, simple-chic design.
The eight rooms categories—which range from Essential and Urban to Junior, Deluxe, and the signature Calile Suite—are awash in soothing tones like blond woods, sky blues, or pale greens, and feature king beds, marble accents, living areas, blackout shades, and custom oak furnishings. Bathrooms are stocked with Grown Alchemist products, mini-bars are filled with locally sourced treats, and the TVs have Google Chromecast. Some rooms also include balconies, plus views of the city or the pool. For a bit of indulgence, an on-site spa offers both holistic and medi-spa treatments, as well as a fitness center with private trainers. The Lobby Bar takes you from morning coffee to late-night drinks with an all-day dining menu, while the poolside Hellenika restaurant celebrates the flavors of Greece.
