QT MelbourneWhen QT first opened in Sydney in 2012, the design-driven hotel got rave reviews for its hip style, service, and whimsical touches (like “Directors of Chao” to attend to guests). Today QT Hotels & Resorts operates seven hotels across Australia, including a Melbourne hotel which just opened in September.

The city is already known for its cool quotient, and QT aims to raise the bar with a striking new landmark—designed by architect Angelo Candalepas-- in the city’s Central Business District (CBD). To quote the official press release: the QT Melbourne is situated “at the "Paris end" of the exclusive Collins Street precinct, where 1920s rag traders plied their wares and from which the city's creative spirit still stems.”

Interior designer Nic Graham and architectural and design expert Shelley Indyk are responsible for the industrial design aesthetic, which showcases steel, stone and timber. QT Melbourne has 188 guestrooms and a number of destination eateries including Pascale Bar & Grill (a French-style brasserie), The Cake Shop (in the lobby), and Hot Sauce, a cocktail bar which—true to its name—features a number of hot sauce varieties from around the world.
