Fodor's Review

One of Queensland's most popular destination hotels, the impeccably-kept, retro-meets-modern QT Gold Coast boasts 360-degree views of the beach and hinterland, on-site restaurants and bars, and enough quirk and energy to make it stand brightly apart in a glut of beachside high rises. A homage to Aussie retro surf culture, the busy young hotel is a pleasure to greet with an old-fashioned lemonade stand, vintage-style bicycles (free for guests), and retro "beach babe" decals fitting out the light, mirrored lobby. Just a few minutes from Surfers' main beach, QT offers a range of well-appointed ocean and mountain view rooms and suites, where colorful designer furniture is complemented by breathtaking views, luxury fittings and thoughtful local touches like beach bags, flip-flops, and reading lamps that look like Australian birdlife. Work up an appetite in the sunny pool and Jacuzzi area (including swim-up bar), then retire to Bazaar—QT's large, lively, marketplace-style restaurant—serving up award-winning, multi-origin buffets for breakfast, dinner, and Sunday lunch. For an extra treat, head down to SpaQ on Level 1, where massage, facials, skin treatments and a hammam sauna will leave you on cloud nine.
