133 Russell St., CBD
QT excels at crafting hotels that are both sumptuously comfortable and quirkily cool. A Wes Anderson–inspired eccentricity pervades the Melbourne iteration’s 188 rooms and communal spaces, with clashing velvets, dark wood, concrete ceilings, and sculptural light fixtures. The rooms are spacious, cozy, and highly functional, with Bose sound systems, Nespresso machines, deep tubs (bring a G.Nite soak), and gorgeous wallpaper-lined wardrobes. The restaurants in QT are lively, and the rooftop is an ideal spot to soak up panoramic city views, get your bearings, and sample a locally made gin and tonic.
