New hotel in Brisbane, The Calile, is where you need to be

New hotel in Brisbane

Brisbane 10 years ago versus Brisbane now; the two can’t compare. When you have establishments like the new hotel, The Calile, open up right in the heart of Fortitude Valley, it speaks for itself. An urban oasis stuck right on James Street in ‘The Valley’, it’s a hotel by TFE Hotels Collection that is one for the peak of the group’s crown. A one-night stay, courtesy of Hyundai Australia is enough to prove that.           View this post on Instagram                   The newest hotel in Fortitude Valley, The Calile is a stunning resort with a subtropical aethestic right in the heart of the city.
