BRISBANE HOTEL NAMED LEADER IN LUXURY

THE Emporium Hotel came out on top of leading hotels in the country, after being named Australia's Leading Boutique Hotel at the 2015 World Travel Awards in Hong Kong.

The Emporium faced tough competition from The Cullen Arts Series Hotel, Cape Lodge in Margaret River, Gaia Retreat & Spa, Medusa Boutique Hotel Sydney, The Henry Jones Art Hotel, The Langham, The Lyall Hotel & Spa, The Prince in Melbourne and Woodbridge on the Derwent.

The success follows other wins at the Queensland Tourism Awards and recent entrance into the Tourism Hall of Fame.

Emporium Hotel's Peter Savoff says the award is a reflection of every team member's commitment to their work.

"Last night's win was achieved by every single staff member," says Savoff.

"It was won by the owners Tony and Fran John who seven years ago opened the doors to what was a new and exciting tourism offer for the country a boutique, independently owned and operated luxury hotel, one defined by a very directional design and service commitment.

"This vision and courage has paid off for not only the team, but for Brisbane as an exciting international city, and for the state of Queensland, and indeed, for Australia."

Work has already begun on a second Emporium Hotel, set to feature in the $650 million South Bank development.
