1. SKYCITY Grand Hotel, Auckland

The Sky Tower is an icon in Auckland’s skyline, but very few people have woken up to look down on the city of Auckland. The SKYCITY Grand Hotel, which sits in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, has the Sky Tower, other attractions and impressive dining options literally at its doorstep. This is definitely the hotel to stay at if you want to wake up to stunning views of the city or the Waitemata harbour.

2. QT Sydney

The QT Sydney has taken on two Sydney icons – the Gowings menswear story and State Theatre buildings – and re-imagined them into a 200-bed hotel with 12 room styles. The renovation has boldly kept many of the buildings most distinctive features, such as the blend of Gothic, Art Deco, and Italianate influenced architecture that form the dazzling exterior of the building. The design-led approach doesn’t stop with the building as all staff wear quirky avant-garde uniforms and the lift includes technology that adjusts the music according to how many people enter the elevator.

3. The Rees Hotel and Luxury Apartments, Queenstown

The Rees Hotel and Luxury Apartments perches on the Franklin Arm of Lake Wakatipu. Imagine cosying up next to the fire after a day of the slopes, pinot noir in hand and watching the planes drift in and out of Queenstown Airport. You’re also closeby to Ben Lomond, Moke Lake and the Remarkables, if you ever want to leave your hotel.

4. Adelphi, Melbourne

In Melbourne, it’s hard to go past the modernist Adelphi in the heart of the food, bar and boutique precinct of Flinders Lane. Its signature roof-top pool deck extends out over the street with a glass bottom allowing swimmers and pedestrians eye contact. The Om Nom Kitchen and Dessert Bar produces treats that look too good to eat. But the stand-out dining option is an eight-course degustation, vegetarian option provided, in the award-winning Ezard restaurant in the hotel’s basement. You’ll be grateful it’s just a lift ride back to your room.

5. Limes Hotel, Brisbane

Limes Hotel is the building block for a buzzing food and arts precinct centred around Alfred and Constance streets in Brisbane’s bohemian Fortitude Valley. It features 21 rooms plus a rooftop bar and cinema, which operates each Wednesday and Thursday. The neighbouring restaurants and bars are all connected so you can bring your dinner back to your hotel rom. Courtyard rooms include hammocks, a nod to the tropical lifestyle of Queensland.
