The Emporium Hotel in Brisbane has been titled Australia’s Leading Boutique Hotel at the 24th World Travel Awards in Shanghai over the weekend. It is the third year in a row the independently owned and operated hotel has won, with its third win coming on the 10th anniversary year of the hotel.
Emporium Hotel took out the award against some of the best in the country, including: The Old Clare Hotel in Melbourne, Cape Lodge at Margaret River, Gaia Retreat & Spa, Lyall Hotel & Spa, Ovolo Woolloomooloo, The Henry Jones Art Hotel, The Prince in Melbourne and the Woodbridge on the Derwent.
A jewel in Queensland’s and Australia’s tourism crown, the Emporium Hotel has been recognised both nationally and internationally. Achieving the hat trick at the World Travel Awards, however, is one award each and every team member will welcome with extra pride according to Emporium Hotel general manager, Peter Savoff, who was in Shanghai to accept the award.
“This achievement is the result of long-term commitment by everyone involved with the hotel – 10 incredible and consecutive years of ongoing work and commitment by the team to continually deliver on our very genuine promise and our vision to create a boutique luxury experience,” he said.“The win is testament to owners Tony and Fran John who ten years ago this month 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, as well as a commitment to green environmental practice. This vision and courage has paid off and for not only the team, but for Brisbane as an exciting international city, and for the State of Queensland, and indeed, for Australia.”
The new flagship Emporium Hotel, at home in the $600 million Southpoint development at South Bank, will open in mid 2018.
