This 3 week old refurbishment is sharp, quirky and has a New York feel to it in an Australian political theme. The room was excellently presented and we had a great view to the CBD and Mt Ainslie. There was a disturbingly high amount of alcohol provided in the mini bar (not sure who is the target market on this) but the Nespresso machine was a nice touch. The Capitol Bar and Grill looked excellent but was quite overpriced and we were disappointed that there was no a la carte selection for Breakfast; $32ph is quite expensive if you only want coffee and toast off the buffet. However, it is a short walk to the Acton precinct and to the CBD for much more dining options. The staff were friendly but did not go out of the way to provide any extra information or help to give the premium service that the QT brand is meant to represent. Perhaps staff are still finding their way, but it felt like a a little more genuine warmth in their interactions would make the difference.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- QT Canberra sits within the iconic Lakeside hotel that has been the scene of many a handshake deal and long lunch. In the great tradition of Australian politics we do business with a wink and a nod and know that after a gruelling day of question time (from the kids or the leader of the opposition) you need a place to put your feet up an a soft bed to fall into. Our 205 guest suites are kitted out with designer decor and all the business savvy mod cons we know you need to get the job done. Expect a seamless technology offering and a team geared to assist you with any left-field requests. ... more less
