Visited Emporium for a short one night break. When we arrived, concierge arrived instantly, with intent to park our car for us and to deliver our luggage....very friendly and welcoming. Walking into the hotel lobby, it was overwhelmingly opulent, yet all staff very friendly and welcoming. Check-in was very quick and efficient .... again very friendly staff. The reception staff did advise us that we had something special for us (no idea why, we were on a getaway post loss of my mum) and when we go to our suite we must have been upgraded so high, that I have never seen such a beautiful room, room 1608. Our luggage was already in the room, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud, and the pillow menu!! A note on the desk advised us that we had a complementary breakfast and a late checkout at midday. The pool was so very warm and had the most amazing view. Steam room and sauna were amazing. Breakfast was beyond expectations. On checkout, we were advised that the reception would collect our luggage and bring our vehicle to the front ready for us. I have never had such an absolute perfect getaway, this hotel is perfection.

We booked two adjoining rooms for a family visit to Brisbane. The hotel is outstanding and located conveniently on the Brisbane South Bank with access to restaurants and theatres within walking distance. Rooms are large and well-appointed with modern decor throughout. On-site parking available. Don’t miss the breakfast on the top floor restaurant with uninterrupted views across the river and city centre; adjacent to the infinity pool. Definitely worth a visit.

Great spacious and comfortable room, friendly and accommodating staff, and fun elevators. For me the staff went above and beyond giving me access to the gym at 0500 as, due to a conference and breakfast meetings, this was the only time available. Room service was also quick and the steaks were perfect.

An excellent stay and certainly my preferred choice of hotels in Brisbane. Staff were excellent and attentive, facilities were outstanding and the views are just spectacular, especially dining at the rooftop terrace overlooking the city. Definitely can recommend and will be back for sure…

Fabulous view. Takes a while to get to order. Two out of two selections no available- we learn in arrears, one at a time (Fixation IPA and a Barossa rose). Takes forever to get served. Water arrives quickly though- lukewarm and unfiltered. Another waitress asks if what she has is our order - it isn’t. Fifty-ish dirty glasses stacked at the bat (= poorly organized). But they have the nice location, so they don’t (have to) care. Sadly, this is very common in Brisbane.
