QT Wellington includes 163 rooms. The hotel occupies a 5- level building comprising the main hotel facilities and 65 guest rooms, together with 98 apartments within the adjoining ten-level apartment building (a number of the apartments are operated by the Group under lease arrangements).
Its facilities include Hippopotamus Restaurant, bar, conference venues and indoor pool. The main hotel building was built in 1986 on a site later required for the construction of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
