Melding two of Sydney's grandest and most prominent historical buildings, QT Hotels & Resorts is excited to announce the city jewel of the QT crown, the opening of QT Sydney - set to open its doors in September this year.

The only Sydney hotel to be a member of the exclusive Design Hotels, QT Sydney is set above the State Theatre and Gowings on Market & George Streets, with a thoroughly restored exterior celebrating the old world appeal. The interior of the building embraces new technology, distinctive art mediums and cutting edge design.

The bold design of the hotel is off-set by the historical features of the building. The hotel is a unique designer space that celebrates an eclectic mix of quirky artefacts, bespoke furniture, graphica and a daring use of colour and art.

Working with two of Sydney's most majestic buildings has meant that the 200 rooms all have different quirks and nuances adding a sense of intrigue to the guest accommodation. Retaining original timber floors, the rooms in the Gowings Building will be bright and airy with eccentric touches and embellishments. The adjacent State Theatre rooms boast exclusively designed carpets and rugs producing a lush embracing feel brought together with bowler hat lamps and cheeky accessories.

QT Sydney will become a culinary journey into unchartered territory, a place where Sydney's business elite and well-heeled darlings will go to graze.

With the design redefining modern day dining, Gowings Bar and Grill will match its wild seafood sensory adventure with an alluring and hypnotic charm. Parlour Lane Roasters on the ground floor is a European style cafe for breakfasts and lunches and the area's bustling wine bar from the afternoon and into the evening.

The hotel's spa is a destination unto itself, spaQ gives a fresh, hand picked and novel twist to the 'designer spa' concept, everything from uniforms to menu options have been considered with confidence in delivering a sublime spa experience.

QT Hotels and Resorts is the concept of AHL, one of Australia's premier entertainment, hospitality, tourism and leisure companies. Other properties currently in the portfolio for QT Hotels and Resorts include the Gold Coast and Port Douglas resorts with other hotels flagged to open in the next 2 years.
