September 8, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Emporium Hotels has been named ‘Australia’s Leading Boutique Hotel’ at the 2018 World Travel Awards, marking the fourth consecutive year the brand has received the highly acclaimed accolade.  In addition, at the same awards, Emporium Hotel South Bank was named ‘Australia’s Leading Hotel Residences’ for its recently completed Emporium Residences and Emporium Apartments. The winners were announced last night, Monday, 3rd September 2018, at the World Travel Awards’ Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony, staged at the InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong.

Peter Savoff, General Manager, Emporium Hotel South Bank said,

“On behalf of the Owners, Tony and Francine John, we are absolutely thrilled to receive not only one, but two honors at the prestigious 2018 World Travel Awards. These awards mean a lot to us and are particularly special this year, having made the transition from Emporium Hotel Fortitude Valley to our new, flagship Emporium Hotel South Bank. To have the exacting, high standards our team prides themselves on continue to be recognised is absolutely wonderful.

We are also extremely proud to be awarded the title of ‘Australia’s Leading Hotel Residences 2018’, with the recent completion of the Emporium Apartments and Emporium Residences, where we can now extend our acclaimed service into a residential setting. You can imagine what an absolute milestone achievement this is for an independently owned and operated hotel.”

Emporium Hotels first launched in July 2007 with Emporium Hotel Fortitude Valley, which was the sole vision of two passionate, design driven individuals Anthony and Francine John of the Anthony John Group.  Together they crafted an offering without equal in Brisbane’s boutique luxury hotel market.  Emporium Hotel Fortitude Valley went on to win an extensive array of national and international accolades before being sold in 2017. The new, flagship Emporium Hotel South Bank is set to officially open in September 2018.

Established in 1993, the World Travel Awards aims to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries, and is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence.  Voted for by travel and tourism professionals and business and leisure travel consumers worldwide, the accolade recognises commitment to excellence demonstrated over the last twelve months.
