Gastronomically, aesthetically and emotionally pleasing. This hotel is a rarity that captures and provokes your imagination. From the little details i.e. a hair elastic included in the shower cap box, to the bigger things i.e. Nespresso machines with complimentary pods in the room additional to complimentary movies - this hotel provides the perfect escape although your are right in the heart of the CBD. Very impressed.

My partner and I just spent 7 amazing nights at the QT, and did not want to leave the amazing world that this hotel has created between its walls. From the time you arrive, you know you are in for a totally unique and unforgettable experience. We were welcomed by Naomi as our taxi pulled up. She absolutely rocks! Before I could blink, she had all our lugage taken care of while rocking an amazing outfit, heels and red wig...all with a welcome to your home away from home smile!

We had booked the deluxe king and walking into the room was an absolute wow! Every detail of this hotel from the Cafe at the ground level, to the lobby, the guest lounge, Gowings Bar and Grill AND the room are a phenomenol sensory experience in design. You can easily spend hours noticing all the details and items that individually may be discordant, but put together are just WOW!

There is nothing more important to me than a comfortable bed when away from home. I simply don't think I have ever slept on a bed more comfortable than the QT's. I want that bed! Our room was on the 10th floor and light filled (I had requested a room that gets good natural light). We had a view of the Darling Harbor and the Queen Victoria Building. The bathroom was really spacious and I simply loved the Japanese bathtub. The products by Uspa were absolutely wonderful as well. A huge plus to the QT for having a Nespresso machine in the room, plus great wine and liquor selections. Honesltly, there was nothing that I could find fault at with our room. Super spacious and really comfortable for two people for 7 nights.

The area that sets QT apart from other hotels, in addition to luxury and comfort with style and a unique factor, is its staff. Each and every member of the QT team we interacted with was outstanding. We got to know them and felt like it was family. Penny (Front Desk Manager) absolutely rocks! Plus, Naomi, Brandi, Amy, Preu and so many others whose names I am forgetting could not have been more welcoming and amazing.

We did not use the hotel gym as QT has a partnership with the Virgin Active just a block away, which is just fantastic. The Virgin gym has the most inviting pool to swim laps, an aqua spa area and of course weights and cardio. This is just another fantastic perk of staying at the QT.

Last, the spa is outstanding and a must if you have some time during your stay to enjoy it. Also, all the meals that we had at the hotel (Gowings and Parlor Lane) were great. Highly recommend at least eating one meal at Gowings.

I could keep going on about our experience, but suffice it to say -- if you book the QT you will absolutely not regret the decision. Just hit the confirm reservation button with this hotel and let yourself be enchanted in the fabulous world of QT. I cannot wait to the amazing city of Sydney and QT will be my base.

Dear barca212,

That was a simply stunning shout out from a Senior Contributor. I must admit, I always wait with breath that is bated when I see that a review is from someone from New York. You guys just have the best of the best over there in terms of hotel options and we want nothing more than to be in the same class of experience as that scene.

Thanks so much for letting us know that we are hitting the mark. We hope you get ti drop back in for another long stay next time you are in Aus.

We stayed in a QT Corner Suite on the 5th floor for three nights in December 2013. The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of Sydney with everything at your doorstep. It's hard to pinpoint the stand out feature of this hotel, with so so many great qualities for those that love and appreciate something a little different.

Valet parking, checking in and out and all room service requests were smooth and hassle free. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

The interior design of the hotel and rooms is luxurious, boutique, with a handful of quirky thrown in (emergency bow-ties in the mini bar, customised music in the lifts). The bed was soft and super comfortable, the bathroom spacious and well designed with gorgeous uspa products.

I cannot fault this hotel. QT Sydney is now our favourite hotel in Sydney and we will be back!

Room Tip: If your budget allows, I cannot recommend more highly Corner Suite 507 - great views and high enough...

I have stayed many times in Sydney – but this was the best hotel I have stayed in and I will definitely be back. Bets location for shopping – which we did quite a bit of.
We had a package which included breakfast (you could choose this or spa, or dinner at their restaurant) everything was perfect. The restaurant we went to every day for breakfast, as well as dinner one night – all of which were perfect – I could not fault the food or service.

The rooms were lovely, quite dark, but that appears to be the style of a lot of chic hotels these days. I think we had a King room – we booked direct early and got an amazing rate.

The spa was the best I have been to - and I have been to some amazing ones all around the world. The location was perfect...

QT have an arrangement with a gym close by (although I also this they have their own gym) and guests can attend this gym, I think it is Lifestyle – which we easily got a voucher and went along.

We had one issue, which was fixed immediately upon mentioning – we had a king bed, but it was two beds joined together, when we mentioned it wasn’t quite comfortable, they moved us to a new room which we really appreciated.

This will be the only hotel we would stay in again in the city of Sydney – and keen to try their other hotels all over the place! Highly recommended!

The QT Sydney has a cool vibe and interior design coupled with a great location right in the heart of Sydney. Although it was in one of the busiest parts of town our room was quiet and we never heard any noise from the street below. The staff was friendly and helpful. There were a couple of little things that stopped this from being perfect in my book; the lack of power converters for every room and the tub although very cool was a bit small. However this would not stop me from recommending this hotel or staying there if we were in Sydney again.

We stayed in a Deluxe King Room at the QT for New Years Eve and it was a perfect hotel for the evening. The hotel is stylish and beautifully decorated, centrally located and the staff were very friendly. We also ate at Gowings and had a wonderful dinner. Would highly recommend.
