One Night at The Grand Chancellor | Brisbane

If you are in search of a solid accommodation option for those spontaneous weekend adventures in the city, then the Grand Chancellor is sure to tick all of your boxes.

Located opposite the vibrant Roma Street Parklands, just 7 minutes walk from Grand Central Station- the Grand Chancellor Brisbane offers guest affordability without sacrificing comfort.


The Grand Chancellor Brisbane is located on 23 Leichardt Street, one of the highest points in the Brisbane Central Business District. The hotel boasts 230 rooms and suites along with a restaurant, bar, fitness centre, pool, and function room. 

After booking our room through the Hotel Tonight APP for the AH-MAZING price of $118 (on a Friday night!) we honestly weren't expecting much when we walked through the doors. So you can imagine our surprise when we were greeted by this chic little lobby!

The Grand Chancellor recently underwent a major refurb, breathing new life into their lobby, and conference centre. Even a few of the accommodation floors received the magic touch. We've got our fingers crossed that it spreads to the entire hotel soon! If you are lucky enough to snag a room on the newly refurb'd fllors, you are in for quite the shock once you step out of the elevator. We seriously though we had been magically transported to a different hotel...

Due to a faulty air conditioner, we were lucky enough to experience this for ourselves. Sadly, our room change happened at around 1AM so we weren't able to really enjoy (or take photos). You'll have to take our word when we say the room was VERY nice. 

Now back to our original room...and although it may not have been as glamorous as the new floors it still managed to satisfy us without breaking the bank!


During our visit at the Grand Chancellor we stayed in a Superior Room. Superior rooms are located on the first & second floors along with some of the high floors which offer guests unspoiled views of the city and parklands. 

The room comes with a King Bed, Bluetooth digital radio, an espresso machine, designer bathroom amenities, fluffy bathrobes, slippers, complimentary wifi, complimentary Voss water and a complimentary snack.

Although the styling of the room was pretty basic we were still satisfied that we had gotten more than our money's worth. The room was spotless, the bed was plush,  and we had our own private balcony with a worthwhile view. It was truly a steal for under $150. What more could you ask for!

Let's be real, if you are having a staycation in the city you most likely be looking for a comfy place to nurse your hangover after a fun night. We can say from personal experience that the Grand Chancellor is the perfect crash pad.
