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....

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...

Overall a comfortable stay in a well designed and fitted/furnished room with a decent sized bathroom. Large shower with good water pressure and abundant hot water and room size was adequate. Electrics, air con and TV all very good....

We booked into the hotel for a 4 day break in a suite. Firstly upon arriving we basically were met by a receptionist who was effectively dismissive of us checking in. Looking down on us stated 'since you have booked a corner suit I will hold $800 on your card just in case!'. Unsure what2 females over the age of...

I loved this hotel. Beautiful foyer, lovely room, amazing spa bath in room. The pool let me down though. We booked here to enjoy a swim and it was way too cold. I feel like a hotel like this could afford to keep it heated. My only gripe!

This hotel was everything all the reviews said it would be. Great Staff. Very helpful in all things and the concierge was great helping us make dinner reservations and with his suggestions for restaurants. Great Bar with a good selection of bar snacks. We could not ask for more in hotel. We were driving and they had valet parking into...

This is a nice hotel....I stayed in the king spa suite...I wouldn't exactly call it a suite, per se. but it is a very nice room. I was disappointed not to have a balcony like I saw in the pics. I was hoping for chairs and a table to sit on and take in some fresh air. All I got...

The king sized bed was very comfy, but no more so than the Novotel, where we usually stay; not worth the extra $100. Also: car parking. There is valet parking at the hotel for $45. Before we arrived, I asked if there was any other option nearby. The hotel said, and I quote "Unfortunately there isn’t too many options for...

Nice rooms & good location. Not my taste in furnishings or decor but that's a personal thing really. My main gripe was the feeling I got that they were intent on charging me for literally everything I looked at. From the TV menu to the minibar it's all absolute extortion! I ended up bringing back a bottle of wine from...
