Hope this isn't too late, but I'd avoid the Emerald if I were you. Stayed there last September, and while it is nominally in the CBD, it's actually quite a hike from the real CBD, especially if you have kids in tow. There's nowhere nearby where you can get dinner, milk etc (though they sell a few wildly overpriced staples at reception, but nothing you could actually cook with). And room service is completely unreliable (eg, order, an hour later ring and chase up, ring again after twenty minutes to be told the chef's gone home and that's just tough luck - no effort to help you find a meal or to apologise or adjust the bill).

ALso, the kitchenette is not a real kitchen - there is a cold-water sink and a small, incredibly low-powered microwave, but no actual cooking utensils or facilities.

I stayed there because I thought a CBD location and a kitchenette would save money, but in reality it has neither and you would be a lot better off spending a bit more money and staying somewhere that is genuinely more central.
