Brisbane Australia 4006
Brisbane's Emporium Hotel provides a luxurious home base from which to enjoy Aboriginal cultural festivals or tour the rain forest learning about indigenous medicines and "bush tucker." If those roots and berries don't provide enough sustenance, the Emporium has a Parisian-style sidewalk cafe, cocktail bar, restaurants and 24-hour in-suite dining. Or just sip cocktails by the rooftop pool. The Queen Room is the only non-suite option in the center-city boutique hotel, but even this standard room has sweet features, like in-room washer/dryer, plasma TV, kitchenette and Molton Brown toiletries.
