Hotel Renovation Notice

Dear Guests,

The Hotel is currently undergoing some change, and will soon be known as QT Museum Wellington Hotel. With 7 boutique properties across Australia, QT Museum Wellington will be the first property outside of QT Hotels and Resorts' Australian origins. QT Museum Wellington will be led by design, quirk and innovation, capturing the heart of our capital's creative culture. 

We are thrilled to announce that our highly anticipated interior renovations have begun, with the expected completion date by Summer, 2016. 

If your stay is from 15 August 2016 until late September, our Reception and Lobby area will be condensed and relocated to the main entrance of the hotel. 

The reception will be set up alongside Concierge and will operate as usual. Our Lobby café and bar will be closed but Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail bar, on Level 3, will remain open.

Our friendly Front Desk and Concierge team will be happy to recommend and provide directions to Wellington’s hidden gems and most popular haunts.

We are excited for our guests to experience our evolution into QT Museum Wellington. We thank you for your understanding during this time and look forward to welcoming you to the hotel.

If we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

We apologise if guests are inconvenienced during this time, however we look forward to our guests experiencing our evolution as QT Museum Wellington.

New Zealand’s most admired art hotel will remain a luxurious experience with an extensive contemporary art collection.

The QT Museum Wellington Team
