QT Auckland takes home three honours at industry awards
QT Auckland celebrates a collection of new accolades, including the most esteemed honour at Hospitality NZ’s prestigious Hospitality Awards for Excellence 2021 as the hotel was named Supreme Winner.
Selected amongst all finalists in every category, the Supreme Winner is the pinnacle of the Awards for Excellence. According to the independent judges, the winner represents the absolute best hospitality or accommodation that New Zealand has on offer.
As the tenth and newest property in the QT Hotels & Resorts group, QT Auckland opened its doors in November 2020, welcoming guests across 150 rooms and suites, sixth-floor bar Rooftop at QT and signature restaurant Esther in collaboration with Chef Sean Connolly. Since then, QT Auckland has more than delivered on its promise as a luxuriously quirky escape that reflects its harbourside locale. Bursting with design-led details, it has delighted countless guests with a design narrative of inner beauty and self-discovery, with all elements considered by QT design collaborator Nic Graham.
QT Auckland General Manager Doron Whaite says, “What a way to round QT Auckland’s first year in the New Zealand hospitality scene. I am so proud of the entire QT Auckland team who have made this achievement possible and we’re humbled to be named Hospitality NZ’s Supreme Winner.”
QT Auckland also won two additional categories, including Best New / Redeveloped Business – Accommodation and Best Bar for its sixth floor crown jewel, Rooftop at QT. The hotel was a finalist in the Excellence in Marketing category for its innovative experiential launch campaign.
Sister hotel QT Wellington was a finalist for Best Luxury Hotel, a testament to the success of QT’s quirky luxury, with standout signature service, design-led details and excellent food and beverage programmes as the common thread running through QT properties.
