The Gowings and State Theatre buildings in Sydney's Central Business District (CBD) have been revamped to create the new designer hotel, QT Sydney. Its interiors feature edgy art and installations, even in the elevator. Bold colors and quirky furniture are featured throughout. Great place to dine and have a drink or two at their sexy bar. Rooms and bathrooms are modern and beyond gorgeous!

Coolest Musical Elevators in Australia
Worth a visit on their own, the elevators at the QT Sydney play music according to the number of people inside. One person, nostalgic "solo" music. Two people, couples songs. Three people+, party! Such a cool and unique concept!
Growing up in Mexico, I would get all my haircuts from my grandfather's old-school barber. He would cut my hair and finish off the session with a mock shave using warm shaving cream and the dull edge of his blade.
Three decades later - now with some facial hair to shave, my memory instantly flashed back to those times in Mexico when I saw QT Sydney's retro Barber Shop.
Outfitted with imported American vintage barber chairs and a solid menu of men's treatments and Cut Throat Shaves (make note of the Mr. Bond and The Don), the Barber Shop at the hotel's SpaQ is a must-do while in Sydney.
Sexy, sassy and stylish, QT Sydney boutique hotel has her party shoes on and is ready to dance. This super-central design diva is carved out of the historic State Theatre and Gowings department store buildings, blending Gothic, art deco and Italianate architecture with quirky-but-cool interiors. Door gals dressed in saucy uniforms, buzzy drinking and dining, and a hip day spa? We're smitten.
Simply book a time slot in stylish SpaQ and 'fresh picked' treatments are honed around your mood on the day (we love the hammam and ice-room). Gents can go grooming crazy at the old-school barber's (complete with antique US chairs), where wet shaves and facials leave you sleek as a seal (choose between Mr Bond or the Don).
