There is no doubt that if you're looking for a contemporary alternative to the typical Brisbane CBD hotel than the Emporium is worth consideration. It's location in Fortitude Valley is certainly well placed and it's pool facilities are a pleasant surprise. The rooms themselves are modern and the bathrooms very nice (great bathroom products too!). As a business traveller I was disappointed that, given its premium, that there was no coffee machine (such as a Nespresso) in the room, nor is there a decent iron (it had no steam function) and the television was unfortunately programmed to the wrong ratio causing much of the image and text to be cut off. Whilst I appreciate the hotel is in a CBD environment I was also not particularly impressed with the parking charges which were somewhat more expensive than other hotels in the surrounding area. With all that being said the staff were exceptionally polite and very helpful. I would probably consider staying here again (based on location and the staff) however I'm not convinced, given some of the shortcomings, that the Emporium is suited to the business traveller.
