This is a really special hotel. As other reviewers have suggested it's funky and luxurious - even better though, is the location. When I'm in any city I like to feel that I'm in a neighbourhood, rather than in a sterile, business part of town. The Emporium fits the bill - great cafes (including the in-house patisserie) in the same precinct and just a couple of minutes walk to James Street Market. I highly recommend walking to the river - its a very pretty walk along the banks to Teneriffe or you can hop the river cat town or Southbank. A 20min fast-paced walk through Fortitude Valley (they don't call this Brisvegas for nothing!) will have you in the CBD.
The pool is perfect for laps and the pool deck is comfortable with great views over the city. Rooms are luxurious and more like a studio than a room - great having the kitchenette faciltiy with dish-draw and hidden laundry.
Brisbane at its best.
