I was a little too excited at the entire thing to get any photos of the lobby…whoops! But the QT’s website has a gallery section, so you may have to use that. When I heard about the conference I initially booked a twin room for two nights, just in case I wanted to share to make the rooms cheaper. Then I realised that I snore and no one wants to share with that. And then I was offered a place in a post-conference event (more to come on that in future weeks) and I needed to extend my stay by one night. Unfortunately the hotel was at such capacity that I had to swap to a king single room for the final night, but the staff were really accommodating: not only did they store my bags while I was in the second day of the conference, they emailed me as soon as the second room became available so I could check in ASAP. And put up with me having to swap money around to pay for it all – what did we do before iPhone banking apps?!
I’m not a neat person, so I have to snap a lot of photos quickly when I check into a room to make sure my mess isn’t in them!
As with most hotels, the rooms are all pretty similar – out of sheer necessity I guess! It must be a much more effective use of space if there’s not much difference between room layouts and sizes. Here’s the King Single room:
Unfortunately I was too busy while I was there to get to use the tennis courts, pool or spa. But that’s also a good reason for a return visit I don’t think they could have picked a better place to hold the conference – and the most impressive thing? The hotel wifi stood up to 450 bloggers madly tweeting, blogging and generally sucking them dry for two straight days. That is really impressive!
I’ll leave you with a few other snaps around the hotel:
Have you ever stayed at a QT Hotels property? I really loved how they didn’t just look like every other hotel around. I would love to go there for a relaxation weekend – maybe a massage, buffet breakfast, walk on the beach & a bike ride. Could be a pretty perfect weekend!
