EMPORIUM HOTEL BRISBANE.... Quiet as a mouse

Brisbane, like Sydney, is a regular place to visit for those doing business, a little city shopping or like us waiting an international flight. In the past we have chosen to stay smack in the centre of the CBD, but this time we ventured to inner city suburb Fortitude Valley.

Cocktails with Tequila Carmel

As soon as we arrived we hit the cocktail bar in the foyer. If you love your cocktails, this bar is for you. The margarita was something special, complete with black volcanic rock salt, dried lime and rosemary garnish, and the pink sherbet Champagne, wow.

Onto the room. Large, lots of marble, huge bathroom and my favourite….. a pillow menu. As the title of this post says, QUIET. No embarrassing noises from next door, no traffic from the motorway and no noisy trolleys heading down the hallway, just one giant king bed and a perfect nights sleep.

Fortitude Valley is located a quick 9 minutes from the CBD, and the hotel itself is at the centre of a luxury square of pumping restaurants,bars and brands, but don’t let that put you off, Guzman and Gomez is an awesome budget choice and its right next door. Or as we did, order room service, it arrived in 30 minutes, piping hot and was delicious.

We only stayed one night, and was most definitely worth the $275. this hotel gets a solid 10/10 from us.
