QT voted the top hotel group at the National Travel Industry Awards

A national poll amongst travel agents voting in their thousands has named QT Hotels & Resorts as the number one hotel group in New Zealand.

Playful hotel brand, QT Hotels & Resorts took home the award for ‘Best Hotel Group’ at the annual TAANZ National Travel Industry Awards; a snapshot of the absolute best travel experiences found in New Zealand’s burgeoning tourism scene. The award was announced at a black tie annual event before 600 guests at Sky City Grand on Saturday night.

The QT brand arrived in New Zealand last year; with QT Wellington opening in January and QT Queenstown in December. The group is known across Australasia for signature QT quirk, the highest levels of service and memorable experiences through cutting-edge design, art, music and food.

The awards celebrate the favourites of travel agents in New Zealand and stimulate, encourage and promote the desire to travel.

Simon White, General Manager New Zealand Hotel Operations is proud of the accolade for QT; a brand recognised for its distinctive sense of quirk, fun and unique design philosophy.

“We’re thrilled to receive the agent voted award, especially at such a recognised and well-respected industry event,” he said. “It has been a pleasure to introduce the uniqueness of QT to New Zealand. To have this officially acknowledged means a great deal for the QT team. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the travel agents who help showcase our exceptional offerings!”

QT Hotels & Resorts first put its stamp on the Australian tourism sector with the launch of QT Gold Coast in 2011. The unique and exciting property delivered the first injection of QT’s signature designer spaces with bold entertainment and intriguing yet relaxing guest experience. QT Wellington and QT Queenstown marked the collection’s first international properties. Adding to its portfolio of stunning hotels and resorts, QT is set for expansion with new properties to open in New Zealand, with plans for an Auckland location currently underway.

Now one of Australia’s most loved and dynamic hotel brands, the family of properties include QT Gold Coast, QT Port Douglas, the flagships of QT Melbourne and QT Sydney, QT Falls Creek, QT Canberra, QT Bondi and QT Perth.
