QT MU­SEUM HO­TEL OVERNIGHT RATE FROM $230 (SU­PE­RIOR KING)

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Escape - - WHAT’S YOUR BUDGET WELLINGTON - QTHOTELSANDRESORTS.COM/WELLING­TON/

In a city with quirk as its mid­dle name and an in­ner art critic lurk­ing within every vis­i­tor, the QT Mu­seum Ho­tel slot­ted in ever so smoothly when it opened op­po­site the Mu­seum of New Zea­land Te Papa Ton­garewa in Jan­uary. A $12 mil­lion makeover of the orig­i­nal Mu­seum Art Ho­tel, the QT re­brand­ing has kept the cu­ra­tion of high and low­brow art, and added touches such as night caps and emer­gency bow ties. When it comes to eats, book ahead for the much-lauded Hip­popota­mus, serv­ing clas­sic French fare among pea­cock plumes, hot pink vel­vet and chan­de­liers. If you pre­fer Gang­nam style, Asian fu­sion street food bar Hot Sauce has just opened.

You’ll also find an in­door lap pool, gym, sauna and seven meet­ing rooms on-site to mix busi­ness with plea­sure.
