It isn't very often that a hotel wants you to leave the property, sometimes even offering free transport. That's how things work at QT Gold Coast in Australia. They want their guests to go...and explore the city and everything it has to offer.

The hotel offers guests free use of their super cute, vintage bicycles to pedal around town and pretend to be Gidget in a 1960s beach movie. The Papillionaire bikes are displayed in the hotel gift shop and look like part of the mid-century Miami Beach decor. If the sun is shining and the tide is high, they are an affordable way to cruise the neighborhood for up to 3 hours.

For those of you with the need for speed, QT has the solution — mopeds! A vintage-looking scooter is propped by the main entrance with a sign tempting guests to 'rent me'. It's not only the perfect way to hop from beach to beach, but its a great way to get some sun and blow off the sand stuck to your skin. Since the hires are handled by a local rental shop, the selection of scooters are not limited to just the retro feel and range in price for all tastes.

We appreciate hotels that offer something a little different and keep their guests smiling. Stay tuned for our thoughts on this hotel.

Rates right now begin at $189 AUD ($196).

Wow that is something really

Wow that is something really unique and different as to what we often see in hotels. There are indeed many attractions that we can explore in Gold Coast and the beaches are one of such beautiful attraction to visit to enjoy a breath-taking scenery. Therefore, providing such a transportation service right under the roof of the hotel itself is very practical and serves as a convenience for the customers there. Such a good marketing technique of the hotel management staff.
