A new boutique hotel in an old Melbourne cinema is full of surprises (and one of the best beds I've ever slept in).
Known for their quirkiness, QT Hotels seem befitting of a city like Sydney (where you’ll find the flagship), but I wasn’t convinced that their cheeky, OTT brashness would translate here in Melbourne.
So when the new QT Melbourne hotel opened in September, I went and checked out for Australian Traveller magazine to find out once and for all.
When it comes to first impressions, QT Melbourne has a particularly strong game. For a start, you can’t miss those shiny copper-capped entrance doors, even from half a block away.
On arrival, we were greeted outside by two perfectly coiffed young women. Their flawless make-up and megawatt smiles set the scene for what is to be a suitably theatrical hotel experience."
The upshot? QT Melbourne is a heap of fun and has brought some much-needed personality to the city’s boutique hotel scene. The dining is great and the rooftop bar is just what Melbourne needed.
Although I'm not sure I could endure the exuberant, always-on energy of the place for more than three days, it makes a great weekend stay for visitors or staycation spot if you're a local.
