Stay

QT SydneySydney, Australia

Slip between the sheets of homegrown beauty QT Sydney, an uber-cool hotel that stretches across two landmark buildings, the State Theatre and Gowings, in the heart of the CBD. Think speakeasy charm fused with geometric rugs, objets d’art – including a gown made entirely from undies – and a costume-clad host called the ‘director of chaos’. The lift serenades couples with love songs, groups with party beats and solo travellers with tunes about loneliness. Start the day with coffee at Parlour Roasters, rest your weary bones at the excellent spaQ (some of the treatment rooms feature gorgeous, original lead lighting), get a trim at the Barber Shop and, when you've returned from a day exploring the city, head downstairs to the cool Gowings Bar & Grill for a late-night tipple.

For our money, the rooms looking over the Romanesque Queen Victoria Building, which begins to sparkle as the sun sets, are the ones to book.
