QT Sydney is HOT, HOT HOT!

Posted on: 30 May 2013

Condé Nast Traveller’s US, UK and Russia editions name QT Sydney one of the world’s best new hotels

QT Sydney, the most cutting-edge hotel to hit Australia’s largest city in more than a decade, has been honoured by being named to the “Hot List 2013” list of the world’s best new hotels, in the US, UK and Russia editions of the esteemed travel magazine, Condé Nast Traveller.

Following its appearance on the Condé Nast Traveller Russia Hot List in the magazine’s March 2013 issue, QT Sydney will be featured in the “Hot List 2013” in the UK and US editions’ May 2013 issues. QT Sydney, which opened in September 2012, is the culmination of an extensive renovation of two of Sydney’s most beloved landmark Art Deco buildings, the still-operational State Theatre and the now-defunct Gowings department store.

The hotel’s bold interior design was spearheaded by renowned Australian designer Nic Graham and boasts an extensive contemporary and digital art collection. QT Sydney is also home to the destination spa and vintage barber shop at spaQ and the Gowings Bar & Grill, a European-style brasserie that has fast become one of Sydney’s hottest tables, as well as the Parlour Lane Roasters café/aperitivo bar and the hip Gilt Lounge cocktail bar.

The Condé Nast Traveller Hot List, now in its 17th year in the US edition of the magazine, each year recognizes the very best new hotel, restaurant and spa openings in the world, as determined by the seasoned editors at this prestigious publication.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be recognized by the editors at these three major editions of one of the world’s most trusted travel magazines,” says David Seargeant, CEO of AHL, the parent company of QT Hotels & Resorts. “The opening of QT Sydney was a true labour of love, and awards such as these are a testament to the extraordinarily talented team that has contributed to our success.”
