Sydney’s newest design hotel, QT Sydney, brings together an illustrious heritage with a sense of contemporary luxury.
Opening September 2012, QT Sydney creates a truly unique hotel experience within two of the city’s most iconic buildings; the heritage-listed State Theatre and historic Gowings Building.
The hotel’s thoughtful design retains the cultural authenticity of the site while offering designer accommodation featuring modern, thought-provoking design touches within the classic architecture.
The original office of the Company’s legendary chairman, Sir Norman Rydge, becomes the hotel’s premier Suite, ‘The State Suite’. Featuring the original restored timber panelling the Suite can be combined with the original company Boardroom to create a 184m2 Penthouse.
Original Art Deco, wood-panelled walls frame the grand entrance to the lounge and bedroom, with a view overlooking Market Street and the famous Centre Point Tower. The painstakingly restored interior detailing is guarded over by a Gargoyle statue, recommissioned from the building’s archives, sitting above the balcony on the exterior of the building.
The bathroom is equally luxurious, boasting a double marble vanity, contemporary slipper bath and dual shower all enveloped in rich, gun-powder grey stone walls.
What was once the heart of decision-making, becomes the pinnacle of luxury for the CBD.
