Our wonderful little capital city gets cooler by the day. One of Wellington's oldest, most iconic gems, the Museum Art Hotel, just got a $12 million makeover and is now under the care of QT Hotels and Resorts. Hello, new (and old) kid on the block, QT Museum Wellington!
QT Hotels and Resorts are an Australian based brand of boutique, design-driven hotels inspired by the culture of their locations. This is QT's first venture over the ditch, and they've certainly made an awesome impression! What we love most is that they have given the famous hotel a quirky, cool face-lift while still paying homage to the old Hollywood glamour vibe that guests always loved about the Museum Art Hotel.
The design concepts are the brainchild of acclaimed architect/designer Shelby Indyk. The idea was to meet the needs of the modern traveller with more high-tech, funky spaces and added quirky personal touches - we're loving the local goodies and intimacy kits provided in each room! The staff uniforms are also a highlight, created by celebrated Broadway costume designer Janet Hine.
Not to worry, you can still gorge yourself at the hotel's gorgeous French restaurant Hippopotamus. We also can't wait for a second eatery in the building, a Japanese/Korean street food inspired bar opening September 2017.
We might have to take a trip to Welly just to stay here!
