QT Hotels & Resorts announced plans to open its tenth hotel property in early 2020. QT Auckland will join QT Wellington and QT Queenstown as the third New Zealand location for the company.

Partnering with QT Hotels’ parent company Event Hospitality & Entertainment, the company will work with property owners Russell Property Group and Lockwood Property Group to convert an existing building in Viaduct Harbor into QT Auckland. The harbor-side location will situate the new hotel in the middle of the city’s downtown entertainment district.

The property will offer over 150 rooms, several meeting and event spaces and a new bar and restaurant. Frequent QT collaborator and interior designer Nic Graham will design the interiors for numerous public spaces within the hotel.
