With six hotels to choose from across Brisbane, Mantra is set for all the action in key locations across the city.

The Forehand Winner
It takes room to move around the court for a big forehand winner so if space is what you need then Mantra on Edward is the ideal choice. Apartments are substantially larger than standard apartment hotel rooms due to this property once being a residential tower. Recently converted into a full serviced apartment complex, two bedroom apartments are up to 124 square metres and three bedroom up to 165 square metres, each offering all the comforts of home with 40” LCD TVs, iPod docking stations, Wifi internet access and large balconies to enjoy the city views. Rates start from $209 per night in a One Bedroom Apartment. Vist www.mantra.com.au/on-edward for bookings and further details.
The Backhand Slice
The finesse of the Federer backhand is something to behold, and Mantra's most recent addition to its Brisbane hotel network is sure to impress. Mantra Midtown Apartments boast a modern, contemporary design and décor reflecting New York's 'Midtown' precinct, and as the name suggests the hotel is located in a centralised location between all of Brisbane's main precincts. Just a short stroll from the hotel is Queen St Mall shopping precinct and within a two kilometre radius are South Bank attractions and dining venues; Suncorp Stadium and the RNA Showgrounds. Rates start from $179 per night in a One Bedroom Apartment. Visit www.mantra.com.au/midtown for bookings and further details.
