A quirky, modern hotel sporting a 40's theming - an odd mix! But the room was fine --clean, comfortable and functional -- and the hotel was reasonably close to the National Museum and main downtown area that we wished to visit. They had parking on site, which was good.

Yet another in the QT range, the QT Canberra has a speakeasy/gangster vibe coupled strangely (or appropriately!) with a dash of politics. It isn't purpose built rather a refit of what was a fairly traditional Rydges a couple of years ago. A rather large, club like, lounge area has been added out the back (?) with a Sweeney Todd barber... More

I stayed at this hotel over a weekend and was not disappointed with the quality of the room and its overall comfort. I had just one problem during my stay which was with the wall mounted large screen TV. I found the sound and picture was breaking up which I first attributed to poor reception. I finally decided to report... More

I stayed at the QT for 1 night when I was in Canberra for work. Upon entry the hotel has a nice vibe with a large bar and restaurant. Its a short walk to the city and New Acton. The room was a good size, but wasn't impressive. The bathroom was very simple and had cracked tiles, chips in the... More

Normally I am not the type to write reviews of this nature on Trip Advisor, however, my experience at the QT was such that I cannot stay silent. I had booked a junior suite at the hotel with a good friend for Friday and Saturday night. When we walked in, we were delighted to see that we would each have... More

This used to be the a Rydges Hotel which I had stayed at. It has been completely refurbished - a very impressive turn around. What is really suprising though...it is actually less expensive than it was as the old and tired Rydges! Trendy restaurant located inside hotel, worth trying...

We stayed 3 nights at this newly refurbished hotel with a politic/spy theme throughout. Very happy with reception, room etc. Convenient location and great view. Capitol Bar n Grill had one hat and dinner was indeed superb esp. rib eye for two. One thing that didn't go well. We had afternoon snack at the bar and ordered a club sandwich... More

Stayed at QT for one night on business and I had been looking forward to staying in a QT branded hotel for a while. I would rate this hotel as above 3 star(above ok) but not 4 stars as it is missing the mark in a few areas... Im not sure what market they are aiming for ,but there was... More

I was very interested to stay at QT in Canberra as I have stayed there when it was Rydges. Like QT Port Douglas, I was very impressed with the styling throughout and the very comfortable rooms. I loved the lamps, where can I get one! I didn't get the chance to eat there this time but next trip I will... More
