Highs + Lows

  • The location here can’t be faulted. There’s no better place to stay as a visitor to Melbourne.

  • The food offering is impressive at QT Melbourne. There are four stand-alone venues here – Pascale Bar & Grill, Cakeshop, Rooftop Bar, Hot Sauce bar (Japanese-Korean street food).

  • QT Hotels are known for their eclectic taste and the interior styling here is a lot of fun. Taking inspiration from the hotel’s surroundings, a lot of thought has been put into all of the details offering a very cool, creative inner-city feel.

  • There is a rooftop garden but it’s not open to public.
