QT Sydney Hotel

Occupying the top levels of Sydney’s historical State Theatre and Gowings buildings, the QT Sydney is an eclectic mix of heritage homage and arty modern quirk. With a modestly signposted corridor entrance off Market st opening up into a second level lobby littered with bespoke furniture, lighting fixtures and digital artworks, the boutique hotel has a glamourously conspiratorial feel. Refreshingly, the decor is about as far from the impersonal muted feel of large hotel chains as one can get – indeed, this is a hotel with its own art curator, Amanda Love, and is Australia’s first Design Hotel.
