Reviewed 20 August 2014

I had this hotel recommended by friends as a new "boutique design hotel' - which was the perfect description. Location is fabulous, the staff are brilliant, spa and restaurant are top notch and the designer deserves big hugs from everyone who stays here. This hotel could easily have gone overboard into kitsch or twee, however the balance is perfect. All staff seen to love their job, their uniforms and are genuinely interested in their guests - which is fabulous. We loved our stay and this will be our preferred option when next in Sydney. The elevator music was very clever - as it changes each time you're in it, seemingly depending on the number of people. When alone in the elevator I listed to a fabulous rendition of "dancing with myself" by Billy Idol - which puts a smile on my face every time I now hear that song.

Hi Siddaryl,

We love that you loved us! It's always so awesome when a recommendation lives up to its promise.

The elevator does have a sensor that tailors the music to how many people are in the elevator. Thanks for letting us know that you enjoyed it.

We would love to see you again soonest.

Just had a great stay at QT Sydney. A surprise trip for my husband's birthday form Perth we booked the experience QT life package and must say from the moment we arrived late Friday afternoon we certainly felt like we were on holidays. The hotel had a great atmosphere and from the crowd in Gowings bar it's clear the QT is well loved by travellers and locals alike. The shave and spa offerings were fantastic, I loved the uspa products (all natural no animal testing) and the service from all staff was superb. Would definitely recommend and somewhere special to stay. Great atmosphere, very special and quirky decor, nothing bland or average to be found at all and a myriad of special touches to make your stay that much nicer. Needless to say we will be back.

Hi Meagan W,

Whopeeee! Another 5/5 from a Perth person celebrating a special occasion at the property. That is such brilliant news.

Thanks for the gorgeous notes on the staff and spaQ - it's not a complete stay with QT without a visit to our spa! Proper relaxation.

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know you loved it.

If you love all that is quirky but stylish about 1920's then this is the spot! Great decor in the rooms, fabulous quality mini bar plus olde sweet shoppe lollies. Love the bathroom and mirrored sliding wall. The female consierges look great but could improve their listening/organisation skills - lost our luggage for 3hrs and came in time for us to change and head out to the show - they did make up for it with a favourite bottle of sauv blanc and a typed card with an apology - your forgiven! Couldnt get any closer to the beautiful State Theatre so do both at once. Would definitely go back!

Room Tip: they are all uniquely styled

Hi JanFerguson_11,

Thanks for a wonderful shout out from a lover of all things theatrical.

Love your notes on the decor - couldn't agree more.

Many apologies regarding your luggage - you would have had to make a quick change between scenes to make it to the show on time! Happy that we apologised with a nice bottle of vino. Always takes the sting out!

We would love to see you next time you are in town for a show at the State Theatre. That building is just majestic.

We stayed for 3 nights recently at QT Sydney. We were blown away!!!! For the great price, you get location, great staff, good breakfast, a fabulous looking hotel and a comfortable and well decorated room. When we travel we choose to seek out boutique hotels as we prefer the smaller size overall of the hotel and more personalised service. This hotel reminded me a lot of a hotel in LA called the Redbury. There was not a beige surface in sight, as you would find at many larger hotels, the decor is quirky, modern and interesting. Everything is walking distance to everything, we went to Quay at the Rocks/Circular Quay for lunch and it was an easy 10-15 minute walk. The staff were great!! We will definitely be returning when we come back to sydney!!

Loved the rooms, the friendly team... The Gowings Bar and grill. One small disappointment, the mixed pastries at breakfast. They were greasy and heavy... But not so to cloud a fun experience! Looking forward to our next visit.

Hi June H,

Short, sharp, and sweet review.

So sorry about the pastries! They are usually light as a feather so I can't imagine what must have happened on this occasion. Many apologies.

Had a great 3 night stay at QT Sydney which has an excellent central location.The rooms are very quirky, romantic and a change from the standard 5*. We had a breakfast package which is highly recommended with the whole a la carte menu of interesting dishes included. Our favourite was the scrambled eggs cooked with cheese and truffles. The only negative for us was the soft mattress and over stuffed pillows. Just not what we are used to. Also bathrooms not sound proofed at all from the bedroom which would put some off. Overall the QT was a great find and we will return.

Room Tip: Choose far from lift for quietness which is an option available with on line check in.

Hi JBM296,

Fab review! Sounds like three night in heaven.

The truffle eggs are my absolute fave on the breakfast menu. So delicious. Awesome choice!

Thanks also for the notes on the bed and pillows. We do note that some find them too soft. It's so hard to get it right for everyone, but we do try :) So delighted that this hasn't made a difference in you returning to us.
