The cocktail bar is very popular for pre-dinner drinks. I gets busy from about 6:30pm for about 1 hour, then most of the guests depart for diner at the neighbouring restaurant precinct. If you want a seat, suggest get there at 6pm as it does reach capacity. They have table service, but during this rush hour, you do need to... More

I ended up at the Emporium after booking elsewhere nearby and checking out due to noise and problems. The emporium was great. Nice rooms, a good bar, awesome pool and all around a-plus. It's outside the center, but tons of dining options nearby. Loved it!

We stayed in a King Spa Suite. Staff were great, always happy and concerned and helpful. To be honest, i wasn't that impressed with the room, We got it on a special at about 50% off. Room was very clean, everything in the room was nice and flash, but room was small, and not what I was thinking a King... More

The staff seem actually happy to be at work offering extra assistance if required. The rooms are modern and stylish and the king bed was sooo comfortable. We... More
