With more than 600 hoteliers and industry leaders in attendance, designer hotel QT Melbourne celebrated a win with the Rooftop at QT crowned the ‘Best Hotel Bar’ at the 2017 HM Awards on Friday 1 September.
Held at Sydney Town Hall and hosted by television personality Larry Emdur, the HM Awards continue to recognise the accommodation industry’s finest staff, properties, brands and chains across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
With QT Hotels & Resorts up for an impressive 18 awards across the portfolio, including the flagship of QT Sydney and QT Melbourne, QT Port Douglas, QT Falls Creek, QT Canberra and QT Museum Wellington, former Managing Director David Seargeant was also awarded for his service to the industry.
Having only opened in September last year, this achievement marks one of many for the rooftop who has been included in numerous best rooftop bar round-ups, and was awarded ‘Best Bar’ at the Australian Gourmet Traveller Hotel Guide Awards earlier in the year.
Showcasing views of the Melbourne city skyline, The Rooftop at QT is the place for guests and locals alike to quench their thirst while taking in the heart and soul of Melbourne from above. Hosting up to 185 patrons, the split indoor/outdoor space evokes sophistication through designer decor and cutting-edge sound.
