Cause for Celebration with Condé Nast Traveler

Oct 20, 2020  ·  2 min read

We think the world of our guests. And now, our guests around the world have reflected on their time spent with us in quirky luxury. Your rave ratings have earned both QT Wellington and QT Queenstown recognition in the Condé Nast Traveler 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards.

We’ve both been listed among Condé Nast Traveler’s ten best hotels in Australia and New Zealand, and as the two highest rated New Zealand hotels, we’re really feeling the love.


No strangers to this accolade, QT Wellington is celebrating its third consecutive awards season sitting pretty in the ranks of Condé Nast Traveler’s Top 10. But this year is the best yet, coming in at #2 as compared to last year’s placement at #7, and QT Queenstown has cracked into the ranks for the first time, keeping QT Wellington good company right next door at #3.

Though we’re always up for little friendly competition between properties, it’s hard to play favourites as each is a character in its own right. With common threads of design-led wonder, each QT draws on the local influences of their community and surrounds for a completely unique experience. Home to New Zealand’s largest private art collection and a collection of bespoke Gallery 4 rooms, QT Wellington celebrates the creative capital and buzzing cultural scene. With sweeping views of the Remarkables, QT Queenstown’s modern design is set against a backdrop of alpine divine, challenging our guests to endless adventure.


Expectations are set higher than ever for the third family member in the QT New Zealand trifecta, QT Auckland, who will begin welcoming guests in the City of Sails next month. Perched on the Viaduct Harbour’s marina, the waterfront playground will show off with signature restaurant Esther by Chef Sean Connolly and sweeping views from Rooftop at QT. No pressure, sis. You’re going to be extraordinary!

Thank you again for making us the happiest hotels in New Zealand.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. More than 715,000 readers submitted reviews of their travel experiences across the world. See the full list of Top 10 Hotels in Australia and New Zealand recognised here.
