Sydney Design hotel

Design Hotels' first Sydney (Australia) property will open on 17 September of this year.  While preserving two of the city’s most iconic buildings, and called QT Sydney, it is destined to become a new landmark by reviving a rich and colourful past of theatre and retail.

Set within the historic Gowings department store and heritage-listed State Theatre the new QT Sydney is located in the heart of Sydney’s central business district (CBD) and retail precinct, on the corner of George Street and Market Street.  The hotel is in close proximity to Darling Harbour, a tourist and nightlife area, The Rocks, Australia’s finest restored historical district, Circular Quay as well as Chinatown.

Offering 200 guest rooms they come in 12 different styles – most equipped with a signature oversized bathtub and shower and unique design pieces that reference the buildings’ past.  The lower levels of the buildings have remained unchanged, but important historic fittings and fixtures – such as original stone cladding, gargoyles, facade detail, original timber floors and retail showcases – which have been damaged or removed over decades, have been carefully restored. www.designhotels.com
