Full accommodation information

It’s a modern, slick affair with perhaps the best rooftop bar in Queensland’s capital, perched upon the 21st floor with an expansive infinity pool that gazes out over the silvery skyscrapers, Brisbane River and parklands of South Bank.

Every detail has been carefully thought through here, from the warm service to hi-tech rooms, and from the steam room and sauna to an array of sophisticated lounge bars. A palette of white, gold and toffee keeps every spacious room feeling fresh and contemporary, enhanced further by their mod gadgets like a TV embedded in the mirror and electronic blinds. Even the towels have been monogrammed, so you know you’re in a luxe environment.

Studded as it is in the coveted South Bank area, this luxury Brisbane hotel places you a stone’s throw from the district’s manmade beach, river, restaurants and bars. That said, the Emporium itself offers cuisine with a French twist at Belle Epoque; jazz music and premium cocktails at the Piano Bar; and elevated dining at the rooftop terrace bar, where Brisbane is laid out before you, begging to be Instagrammed.

The gold and caramel tones of the guestrooms at Emporium South Bank add a luxe look to these spacious abodes, as do plush carpets underfoot and sparkling en suites fitted with dual vanities and large, walk-in rain showers. The bathroom walls are transparent but can be concealed using a nifty button, and there’s even a 55-inch TV embedded in the mirror. Other state-of-the-art touches include Bose speakers and electronic blinds, and each suite also features a wine bar, minibar, bathrobes, slippers, pillow menu and Molton Brown toiletries, not to mention far-reaching views of either Brisbane River and the city or Highgate Hill and Mount Coot-tha.

Vista Suite

Vista Suite

Stay in the entry-level king or twin suite for views of Brisbane’s West End, Highgate Hill and Mount Coot-tha, plus all the deluxe amenities that come as standard.
River City Suite

River City Suite

Upgrade to this gorgeous suite to be treated to panoramic views of the river and Parklands through floor-to-ceiling windows spanning the length of the suite, complete with a balcony. It also comes with a jetted tub in the bathroom and a choice of king-size or twin beds.
Exquisite and Emporium Suites

Exquisite and Emporium Suites

Extra spacious at 70sq m with high ceilings too, the Emporium and Exquisite Suites are sumptuous indeed; flaunting stellar skyline views from the top floors of the hotel – even from the egg-shaped bathtub – plus a bronze bar, cocktail making kit, balcony and LED-lit mirror. Guests also get complimentary chauffeur service in a Maserati Levante.
Poolside Cabana Suite

Poolside Cabana Suite

Up on the 21st floor of the Emporium, these capacious suites bestow direct access to the hotel’s infinity pool as well as a private patio with leafy foliage, the view of Brisbane city peeking out in-between. Expect a deep-soak tub in the bathroom, a bronze bar, high ceilings and complimentary chauffeur service in a Maserati Levante.
Frangipani Suite

Frangipani Suite

A huge and ultra-luxe suite, Frangipani has everything: a baby grand piano in the large living room, double-sided fireplace, bronze bar, balcony, city and river views, deep-soak tub, powder room, study; even a karaoke room! Guests also get complimentary chauffeur service in a Maserati Levante.

The most prized asset of Emporium South Bank Brisbane is its rooftop infinity pool, stretching for 23 metres beneath the glowing Australian sunshine. On top of this, other facilities include the fitness centre, sauna and steam room, and you can also request a pampering massage treatment while here. In addition, there’s a complimentary chauffeur service in a Maserati Levante for guests staying in selected suites.

Belle Epoque

Belle Epoque

Emulating a Parisian café-patisserie, Belle Epoque is a chic affair adorned with tumbling foliage from the ceiling and parquet flooring. Pick a chair at the bar, outside or one of the tables indoors for casual coffees, a delectable breakfast, lunch, high tea or perhaps a glass of champagne.

The Terrace

The Terrace

The crème de la crème here at the Emporium hotel, this rooftop terrace will be the highlight of any stay. Drink in the sublime skyline and river views from this polished lounge bar, a stunning space dressed in sophisticated white, silver and glass. A delicious breakfast is served here each morning, followed by an all-day dining menu offering everything from light bites to more hearty dishes, as well as irresistible cocktails, of course.

Piano Bar

Piano Bar

Live piano music can be enjoyed every afternoon in this chic bar, as well as Jazz on Friday and Saturday evenings. Sip premium drinks, nibble on small plates or come for brunch from 10am onwards. There are also some decadent desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth.

If you happen to be staying at Emporium South Bank Brisbane on the first Tuesday of the month, don’t miss the champagne-tasting experience taking place at Belle Epoque. Then, when you’re not sipping cocktails, frolicking in the infinity pool or tucking into lip-smacking cuisine, you’ll no doubt be enticed into Brisbane to discover its many delights. Admire the city from the river on a boat or kayak tour, and hop on a bicycle to explore on two wheels. Try something more adrenalin-pumping by climbing the Brisbane Story Bridge, or perhaps head out of town to go abseiling at Kangaroo Point Cliffs. There’s also the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Cultural Centre, Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Museum to check out, plus, of course, the manmade beach and lagoon at South Bank Parklands found just moments from the Emporium hotel.
