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 patisserie, a cocktail bar, restaurants and 24-hour in-suite dining. Or just sip cocktails by the rooftop pool. The Queen Rooms are the only non-suite options in the center-city boutique hotel, but even these standard rooms have sweet features, like in-room washer/dryer, plasma TV, kitchenette and Molton Brown toiletries.
