The Resort, set to complete its last stage of a major refurbishment in late 2017 will have 92 guest rooms and suites and an events centre for up to 300 pax. With a $59pp day delegate package or an accommodation package from $229.00 with breakfast for one it makes it a very affordable new conference option in regional NSW for conference organisers.

If you are looking for a boutique hotel in the CBD that is quirky, modern and luxurious with a unique history look no further than the QT Sydney.

This hotel has brought together two well-known Sydney historic buildings on Market Street, being the Gowings and State Theatre buildings.  Each distinctively different with a blend of Gothic, Art Deco and Italianate architecture that come together seamlessly to create the QT.

From the friendly welcome by the front door staff complete with their flame red wigs to create the theatrical ambience the hotel boasts 200 luxury guest rooms complete with amazing bathrooms and touches of class such the cocktail kits and personal amenities in each room. An ideal room to retreat to after a busy day of meetings.

A well-kept secret is the private screening cinema with a maximum capacity of 56 guests, which includes the latest 3D AV.

The hotel boasts two other event spaces with the ability to host up to 55 guests for a private dinner or 150 for a cocktail function.

These two venues are also ideal for board meetings and strategic planning sessions.
