150 Room Keys To Be Found: QT Auckland’s Biggest Staycay

Exploring our own backyard and going on staycations has been the norm recently. QT Auckland has doors set to open in November, the highly-anticipated QT Auckland invites locals to explore the city centre for a chance to be a part of New Zealand’s Biggest QT Staycay. To celebrate the opening of the third QT hotel in New Zealand, QT Auckland is giving away the entire hotel, with 150 room keys to be found.

For the next five days, lucky locals can locate special QT Auckland posters shaped as doors, where keys are safely secured within lockboxes. To win a key, all treasure hunters need to do is crack the code.

The posters offer a hint of the beauty that lies within QT Auckland, Viaduct Harbour’s newest hub for quirky luxury. QT has pioneered the philosophy of ‘expect the unexpected’, with the posters daring prospective winners to explore what’s behind closed doors.

QT Auckland General Manager, Doron Whaite said they always like to do things differently at QT when it comes to hotel launches.

“QT is all about loving local. With a focus on our community, we wanted to surprise Aucklanders with a chance to be among the first to experience what QT’s ‘far from ordinary’ philosophy is all about. We’re spending more time in our own backyard with weekend travel and staycations becoming the norm. What better way to treat our locals than to a luxuriously quirky stay with us," stated Whaite.

There are 30 keys to be found per day across the five days, and each key rewards the finder with a one-night free stay. One code is released daily from the QT Auckland Staycay website, and is used to crack the lockboxes for that day.

Exact locations are under wraps but as a clue, posters with attached lockboxes can be found in the suburbs of Auckland CBD, Wynyard Quarter, Ponsonby, Grey Lynn, Newmarket and Kingsland.

“We’re certainly launching an unexpected opportunity for locals to win a chance to stay, and we’re excited to give them a taste of the first-ever QT Staycay. We can’t wait to welcome our QT Staycay winners.”
