Had a few nights of luxury here after 3 weeks of backpacking. The bed was wonderful and I enjoyed picking the perfect pillow (something I am very fussy with and hardly ever find ones in hotels that I like - they are always too big). The swimming pool on the roof terrace was great and it was fun to sit...

Well you do feel special, when you arrive out front of this hotel. We drove up and where greeted by a lovely concierge and valet and then shown into the stunning foyer. The staff on the front desk so warm and welcoming, prompt check-in. Once in the room did not disappoint. Plush furnishings, comfy bed and pillow. Quiet nights sleep...

Tried the Emporium last weekend and what a find! Outstanding staff, rooms were spotlessly clean with stunning decors. The bed was the most comfortable that I have ever slept on - this hotels attention to detail deserves recognition. Outstanding location set amongst a groovy mix of shops, eateries and boutiques. Sensational pool area - this hotel ticked every box!

A lovely little hotel situated in Fortitude Valley an interesting part of Brisbane. Staff could not have been more gracious. Rooms are not large but have every amenity you might want. We arrived late from Noosa Heads and ate at a hamburger stand cum restaurant next to the hotel. Best burgers we have had in a long time. A very...

Love this hotel. From arrival the hotel gets it right with a welcoming and highly professional concierge to the efficient and friendly reception staff. The upgrade to the King Spa room without needing to ask was lovely. The rooms are luxurious, squeaky clean and smell divine.

We spent two nights here. It's not convenient to the CBD and Art Gallery but I was able to amuse myself easily for a day just walking around the immediate area and trendy James St just a few blocks away. Many interesting shops, all seemed to have extremely friendly and pleasant people working in them, and also many places to...

This hotel was really surprising. Id expected suave from the online description but the room delivered beyond that. The features were lovely. The view across the car park took a little bit away from the great balcony fitted with funky furniture. The en suite was a little awkward with no seal on the door (travelling with partner) but it wouldn't...

Very nice hotel, but not scenic views from the room. Very helpful staff, particularly Paul and Graham who assisted us with places to visit. Amazing Italian restaurant just down from the hotel and great patisserie next door for breakfast. Loved Brisbane, very clean and lots to see on a short Break.

Amazing, Luxurious and Romantic, this is a great find in the heart of Fortitude Valley. It's close enough to the city centre but further enough to be interesting. The Hotel Staff we're very accommodating of our booking at the last minute, an additional night to an extended business trip. We highly recommend staying here!

Having gone to Uni in Brisbane in another time - the Emporium has always been on my must stay hotel list. Overnight on way back to Hong Kong provided this opportunity. It's stylish and the concierge fellow was lovely. The lobby and room appear very stylish but in closer inspection the rooms show they are rather dated. They were ok....
