Too often it is the case that hotels which emphasise style end up sacrificing substance and the result is a place that looks great but doesn't work as a place to stay. Fortunately this isn't the case with QT. They have managed to create a funky hotel with buckets of style that also works beautiful as a comfortable, quiet (we were on the 8th floor in the Gowings building and it was one of the quietest city hotel rooms I've ever stayed in), and fun place to stay.
Staff are super friendly, the lifts are mini discos, rooms are spacious and thoughtfully designed and the whole thing works.
My only gripes are that there was no milk in the minibar (it was delivered quickly enough but it seems like a strange thing to leave out......emergency bow tie included but no milk for your tea!? Maybe we're all too cool for milk in our tea) and the quality of the pillows. This is actually a big deal and something they need to sort out. The standard pillows in the room were all the same and were far too thick and firm for us. At 2.30 on our first night we were on the phone to reception to get alternatives. They only have latex pillows as alternatives and these are also very firm. Good hotels well usually have a wide selection of pillow types to choose from; QT needs to do likewise.
