“We couldn’t be more excited to reveal the new, flagship Emporium Hotel, a project of grand proportions,” Emporium Hotel South Bank, General Manager, Peter Savoff said.

“Everyone who visits us will see that no expense has been spared to offer our guests a heightened, sensory experience.  We are looking forward to raising the bar in boutique luxury accommodation, not only in Brisbane, but nationwide and beyond.”

Independently owned and operated, Emporium Hotel South Bank is the vision of Anthony and Francine John, the dynamic team behind the original Emporium Hotel in Fortitude Valley, which built an enviable track record of awards and recognition over its 10 years of operation.

The design-driven hotel showcases an exquisite blend of contemporary beauty and functionality, with a number of Queensland-based artisans behind the numerous bespoke features.

“The owners have engaged the incredible skills of local artisans to create spectacular showpieces throughout the Hotel.

“For instance, the attention-grabbing back-lit red glass shard wall in the lobby, along with the giant Emporium ‘E’ entry statement were created by award-winning Cairns-based John Hyde Glass Innovations.

“The striking mirror-finish, 4m tall frangipani doors seen in the Hotel’s lobby and in the ballroom, were produced by Langford Industries, one of Queensland’s largest fabricators of sheet metal, and the porte-cochere’s stunning water feature was designed and manufactured by Focal Point Water Features,” said Savoff.

Savoff added that the theme of elegant luxury continues into each of the Hotel’s suites.

“Whether for business or leisure, our suites have been purpose designed for indulgence and to satisfy the most discerning traveller.

“There is no ‘entry level’ experience here – each spacious, sumptuously appointed room features a bronze wet bar, 55-inch mirror television that doubles as functional art, Bose Sound Bar, and a large, exquisitely finished ensuite with double vanities, privacy switch glass and premium bathing amenities. ”

Centrally positioned on Grey Street in Brisbane within Anthony John Group’s AUD$600 million Southpoint precinct, Emporium Hotel South Bank is surrounded by Brisbane’s best bars, dining and lifestyle options and just minutes’ walk to Queensland Performing Arts Complex, Queensland Art Gallery, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, the Queensland Museum and State Library.
