Hanging lights shaped like bowler hats; brightly coloured perspex furniture placed strategically on geometric carpets; an oversized bathtub – no, we're not talking about an Austin Powers shag pad, but rather Sydney's newest boutique hotel, QT Sydney.
Sydney's CBD – always a destination for those seeking luxury and refinement – just got even swankier with the opening of this boutique hotel on the corner of Market and George Streets in September. Placed within the upper floors of the State Theatre and historic Gowings building, the hotel is attracting buzz for its uniquely designed rooms. Entering under the glowing lights on the first floor of the State Theatre, guests can stay in one of 200 rooms, following 12 different designs, decorated in a style that can only be described as a cross between a up-market 60s party pad, an indie bar and a brightly coloured Mad Men set. See below for proof...
If the tariff on one of these lavish rooms (starting at $340) is above budget, visitors can still dine at the Gowings Bar and Grill or the Parlour Lane Roasters, whilst rubbing shoulders and indulging in some general schmoozing.
