What an amazing hotel,I stayed for one night and would rate this as one of the best modern hotels of the 21st century. The rooms are as good as any Philippe Starck hotel in Europe ( without the price tag). The foyer and individual floor levels are incredible while maintaining that great heritage feel.The elevators play a random song when the doors close and fizz away when you step out
( nice touch).
The restaurant is word class and not overpriced, staff where very friendly and attentive without being in your face. The bar is amazing with every type of alcohol you could think of.

All in all I'll be back - keep up the good work

Room Tip: Try for a high floor

My husband and I stayed here for night during the week. What a great hotel ! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. We even got upgraded. The room was eclectic and cool. We both had spa treatments. The girls were skilled, professional and knowledgable. We
Floated back to our room. unfortunately we had dinner booked outside of the hotel. ( the only down side to the night). The room service menu and mini bar pricing was very reasonable. I would have liked more of a selection of breakfast items on the room service menu though. We got a late check out and left our luggage to spend the day shopping. Nothing was a problem for the staff. We can't wait to visit again....next time we are not leaving the hotel !!!

Room Tip: Ask for the Gowings side

Dear ANS01,

A shout out for spaQ and for the Gowings side of the building, Two of my favourite parts of the hotel . The spa is getting some really awesome reviews at the moment. It's so great to see as the spa team have made such an immense effort to create a perfect experience. Yay spaQ team!

I'm going to check out the in room dining menu and see what the story is with breakfast. Can't have it being too small!

We hope you come back again soon.

Make sure to book Gowings Bar and Grill when you book in next!

Our 4 night stay at the QT Sydney was nothing short of pure bliss. The staff went out of their way to make our stay with them one we will certainly remember. Upon checking in we were asked what brought us there and after mentioning it was a holiday to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we were delivered two glasses of champagne and a hand-written anniversary card within minutes of checking into our room! The staff always greeted us with a smile and were more than happy to help out with any questions or recommendations. We ate at the Gowings bar and grill for four different meals and could not fault any of them...the food was fit for a true gourmand! We will definitely be staying here whenever we find ourselves in Sydney. Thank you QT!

Every time we see a really warm shout out to our staff we know that every effort to pick the nest of the best has been worth it because they really are a dream team!

We stayed two nights at the hotel QT Sydney for a weekend getaway and shopaholic trip...
The staff were fantastic. Always attentive, fun and nothing was too much of a hassle. We will stay again just for the service!
The beds were comfy, bath was great (thanks to reception to talking me into the european bath). Coffee pods for first thing really beats instant (thank you so much... saved my sanity!).
The day spa treatment was great. My partner had the shave (the don??) but wasn't as happy unfortunately (but he really did enjoy the steam room).
Amazing decor... amazing staff... We will definately be back soon.

Room Tip: Go for the larger bath unless you are petite!

Dear Yvonne P,

You set up a profile just to review us! That is such a magnificent thing to do. We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much.

Love that you loved everything. Well, almost everything! I would be really interested in your review of the close shave. It would be the only one I've seen, so if we can improve, we certainly want to. Please email me on sas_rowlands@qthotels.com.au if you have spare minute and let me know what the story is. That way we can have it perfect for him next time.

Thanks again so much. Hope you've checked out the QT Gold Coast! Love that place!

Gower Bar and restaurant was also wonderful good selction of cocktials ( thanks Bree ) and food last night was also great
all in all a very sensory experience and one i will not forget

Dear TedHorner,

Personal shout out to Bree! Whoop whoop! Thankyou Ted. I will pass that on for you.

Aren't the design details amazing. Every time I walk into a QT Sydney room I am guaranteed to see something I haven't noticed before. Some of the beakers and vases are unbelievable. It was an incredible build.

We would love to see you back with us Ted. Sounds like you were right at home with us.

All the best of the best to you and yours

Wife and I stayed one night, fortunately we called ahead about check-in parking and arrangements for overnight parking - it gets a bit hairy in Market Street around lunchtime! Check-in was very smooth and the "Chaos Managers" did their jobs with our bags and the car well (after a little nervous confusion at the start about who did what with the car. They'll no doubt get over that once the hotel is more than 5 weeks old). Rooms are a total hoot but finding room 25 on our floor was a trial. It's the only room not mentioned on a directory sign. Loved all the detail stuff in the rooms and the bed was super comfortable and, despite the location, the room was super quiet. That's two out of four of our essentials taken care of. Tip-top cleanliness and tight security are the other two so four out of four for all that. Our fifth star always goes to the fine detail and there are some small "misses" (like two bathroom basins but only one cake of soap and a smoke detector directly over the bed that blinks two lights all night). We'll be back at some stage to enjoy the amazing decor and musical lifts and anticipate that we'll be able to award a perfect score then! Great concept, Qt.

Dear Bloke48,

So cute that you have a pic of your wife as your profile image. When I saw the 'bloke48' I thought there'd be a fishing pic for sure!

Back to business - what an awesome review. Sounds like we nailed it. A few bits and bobs we can fine tune, and I'm betting that we will make short work out of these improvements.

We would love to see you back at the hotel with your lovely lady, and thanks so much for taking the time to let us know how your stay was.

Happy couples time to you!

The lovely bell staff added to both the sense of 'arrival' and an anticipation of an exciting stay. We found all staff to be friendly and proficient without being overly intrusive. Throughout our stay we enjoyed 'discovering' different decorative items and "objects d'art" that we hadn't previously taken in (check out the evening gown constructed of 1950's type corsets on display in the downstairs coffee shop). Whilst there was an undoubted air of excitement in the hotel we did find when checking out the bar/grill that perhaps we were the wrong 'targeted' age demographic for the hotel. Both levels of the grill were crowded with people obviously enjoying themselves. But the noise level, both music and from guests (perhaps some acoustic mitigation needed), was overwhelming. The wait staff tried to find us a quieter corner but we could not find somewhere where we thought we could hear each other to relax and catch up on one another's day. We enjoyed our room which again felt like there was a lot to discover and also had everything we needed. We also liked the 'retractable' door which allowed one partner to talk to the other whilst one in the bedroom, the other in the bathroom. In summary we very much enjoyed our stay but would have liked to 'eat in' at night in comfort.

Dear Beppi from Brisneyland,

I have got to agree with you. The bar and restaurant are absolutely pumping, especially later in the week. We have had some really great, high-level press loving the food and drinks which has meant that these offerings are positively bustling at the moment. Many apologies that you didn't get to chill in at the se venues while you were with us.

As for the the rest of your stay, it sounds like we really hit the mark. The corset dress in the display case at Parlous Lane Roasters is one of my absolutely favourite pieces in the whole hotel. Truly naughty and very on theme with the property.

Next time you visit us, please send me an email at sas_rowlands@qthotels.com.au so we can look at making sure you get to have a relaxed and enjoyable evening. It might even be an extra special in room dining experience built just for you!

Loving that you loved the undies dress.
