Stayed in a standard room for 2 nights in early January. The reviews on this website influenced my decision to stay at this hotel. I'm very pleased to advise the majority of positive reviews for this hotel are accurate!
The hotel decor at first glance may be a bit off-putting for conservative types, and that includes myself. I soon got over that and by the time the stay was over it had grown on me. The room was exquisite to say the least, indulgent and refined. No detail had been overlooked in its construction, right down to the soft-closing robes, cupboards and drawers. I had the best night's sleep in a very long time!
Facilities at the hotel were excellent, including the pool and gymnasium. The restaurants and shopping within the Emporium precinct were also of a high standard, but not cheap (mind you if you're staying at the Emporium in the first place you could probably afford it anyway).
The hotel's website is generally cheaper than discount booking web sites such as Wotif and Lastminute.
If a CBD location is a priority, you'd probably stay somewhere else, otherwise the Emporium comes highly recommended.
