QT Sydney | Sydney, AUSTRALIA

When QT Sydney first opened, it attracted a lot of media attention, both domestically and internationally. From luxury and lifestyle magazines such as the Conde Nast Traveller to elite fashion bloggers like Jessica Stein of Tuula Vintage, it was raves all the way for QT Sydney. It seemed that the designer boutique hotel possessed a unique charm that was nothing short of irresistible.

So when the opportunity came for a weekend getaway, it was unanimously decided that QT Sydney would be the perfect accommodation option for its extremely convenient location and quirky design. Indeed there is always a taxi nearby the front entrance and the city’s shopping mall and Darling Harbour are only short walks away.

Situated in the historic Gowings Building, QT Sydney surely took my breath away the moment when I laid my eyes on its dazzling exterior. We were led to the lift by a dressed-up meeter and greeter at the door.  Mind you, the lift has the ability to detect the number of people inside and plays tunes accordingly. Check-in took place at the hotel foyer on level two and the process was a breeze. We were assigned to a room in their ‘old wing’ that offers a view of the QVB. Rooms in the old wing also have hardwood flooring instead of carpet, which I much prefer. The only downside to that was the hotel didn’t provide any slippers and during our stay in winter, it was quite cold walking around the room.

I thought that the hotel room itself was quite spacious given the standard of hotel rooms in Australia. The design was funky throughout and I especially liked the bathroom with the spacious freestanding bathtub. Nice touches such as the DIY cocktail kit can also be found throughout the room. The bed was extremely comfortable and I found the room to be really quite at night.

The hotel also offers awesome spa and barber services, and I sure had the pleasure of enjoying a fantastic spa treatment at SpaQ after a scrumptious breakfast at the Gowings Bar & Grill.

I would recommend that guests take some time to walk around the hotel given everything from vintage suitcases to LED installations and couches covered by colourful velvet fabrics; indeed every corner has something that will catch your eye. Although no evening turndown was provided, our two night stay at the hotel stay was still a memorable one and the experience was enhanced by the friendliness and efficiency of the hotel staff.
