QT Hotels & Resorts opens QT Sydney

QT Hotels & Resorts announced the opening this September of QT Sydney, a 200-room deluxe hotel that is a member of the Design Hotels group and is the third property of the QT Hotels & Resorts group.

The brainchild of Australian hotel magnate David Seargeant, QT Sydney melds the former Gowings department store and the adjacent State Theatre at the intersection of Market and George Streets in the heart of downtown Sydney. Both the Gothic, Palazzo-style Gowings building and the State Theater (an amalgam of Gothic, Venetian and Art Déco influences) opened in 1929.

In addition to 200 guestrooms designed in a dozen styles, QT Sydney will also feature The Gilt Lounge, the Gowings Bar and Grill, the Parlour Lane Roasters café, the spaQ (complete with six treatment rooms, Sydney's first hammam, a nail salon and an old-fashioned men's barber-shop), and meeting space for up to 200 participants.
