Event Hospitality & Entertainment (EVENT) has announced it has entered into a management agreement with Iris Capital for a QT Hotel in Newcastle.
One of four new hotels being developed for the QT brand across Australia and New Zealand, QT Newcastle will be a creative place to stay and play and a hallmark destination for the NSW Government’s Revitalising Newcastle program.
Property Owners Iris Capital will partner with EVENT to convert the former historic David Jones building, retaining the landmark building’s heritage features. Similar to the transformation of Sydney’s iconic department store Gowings to create QT Sydney, the former David Jones site is opportune for the design-led QT experience.
QT Newcastle will sit among the new urban village perfectly located in the heart of Newcastle’s Hunter Street Mall on the corner of Perkins Street.
The hotel will reflect QT’s popular luxurious and quirky flair, featuring 106 character-filled rooms, a boutique rooftop bar, and an intimate QT signature dining concept and bar.
QT Newcastle will be located within a short walking distance to Newcastle’s stunning Harbour and renowned surf beaches.
