Just WOW! Absolutely loved the character and the service at this seriously decadent and quirky hotel located right near QVB. It is perfect for shopping and/or sightseeing. I had to come to Sydney from Melbourne for a one hour meeting so decided to spoil myself with two nights at QT. I loved all the historical touches they incorporated into the decor. Apparently the wall of suitcases on the Reception level was a requirement of the design because they were part of the old theatre building.
I had breakfast in Parlour Lane both mornings - great coffee and the Avo Bomb was divine. Stopped for a drink one night at Gowings and tried the Mushroom and Rice balls for dinner, sitting at the bar. Great atmosphere and an excellent Margerita.
The room was decadent and very large for a city hotel. I was in a deluxe room on the ninth floor overlooking George St with a view of QVB. Styling was eccentric but perfect for the theme of the hotel. Huge deep bath and sliding panels that opened up the bathroom to the main room. Loved it!
I stayed on a Thursday and Friday night and found the room to be extremely quiet. Only two gripes - the bed was way too soft (and yes I know this is personal preference) but I didn't sleep well and woke with a sore neck both mornings. Other reviewers have noted the low lighting, which does fit with the hotel's style, and in principle I loved it, but you REALLY need a stronger light option in the bathroom - we girls need to be able to see what we are doing when we put on our makeup..... There was a small lighted mirror but it was not sufficient.
I think the door staff were one of my favourite things. From my spot in Parlour Lane I watched them in action. Helpful, friendly, attentive, funny and serious eye-candy! It was really quite amusing watching the expressions on the faces of passerby when spotting the super-cool tall girl in the red wig.
How does the lift know how many people are in it? "Are you lonesome tonight" is stuck in my brain.....
Hasta la vista baby.
