Brisbane’s Emporium Hotel has taken the lead as the best in the country, being awarded Best Boutique Hotel at the prestigious HM Awards for Excellence held in Sydney over the weekend.
Held at Sydney Town Hall and hosted by television personality Larry Emdur, the 2013 HM Awards have, once again, recognised the accommodation industry’s finest staff, properties, brands and chains across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
The independently owned and operated Emporium Hotel triumphed against major brands from across Australia including the Establishment Hotel Sydney; Hotel Lindrum, Melbourne; Peppers Guest House, Pokolbin;
The Langham Sydney and The Mansion at Werribee Park. Emporium Hotel was also a finalist for Best Hotel Bar, Best Environmental Initiative, Best Concierge (Graham Hodgson) and Best Business Hotel – the biggest showing from any Queensland property.
Emporium Hotel General Manager, Peter Savoff, attended the Awards along with 600 other industry leaders and said that when luxury service, facilities and design were called for, Brisbane’s Emporium Hotel continually aspired to lead by example. “The HM Awards are recognised as awarding excellence and vision, and we applaud our fellow finalists – who represent the best of the best in Australia,” said Mr Savoff. “Delivering consistent, world class, luxury accommodation and service takes a passionate commitment to ongoing training, and we are so very proud of our team.”
Emporium Hotel is also the current title holder of Australia’s Best Luxury Accommodation, awarded in February 2013 at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards. These two most recent wins join a mantelpiece of awards won from all over the world; testament to the hotel’s incredible achievements. “As Brisbane continues to position itself as Australia’s leading world city, it is important a boutique luxury hotel exceeds guest’s expectations. This we do, and will continue to do as a shining light for Queensland,” said Mr Savoff.
