Hy­att Ho­tel Can­berra

Qantas - - QNEWS. -

$$ From $248

Guests ar­rive to a her­itage-listed ex­te­rior that strikes a bal­ance be­tween stately and wel­com­ing, though the ho­tel’s low pro­file does lit­tle to hint at what awaits in­side: four ex­pan­sive lev­els and nu­mer­ous wings in grand Art Deco style (ho­tel.qan­tas.com.au/hy­attho­tel can­berra). A wan­der around these halls is like a crash course in our po­lit­i­cal his­tory – spot the por­traits of for­mer prime min­is­ters and pavil­ions bear­ing names like Curtin, Bar­ton and Hughes. It was also the place PMs James Scullin and Kevin Rudd used to call home. There’s no short­age of meet­ing spots – from Speaker’s Cor­ner Bar, which buzzes at night, to Grif­fin’s lounge, the pick in win­ter, thanks to its cosy lounges and crack­ling fire. The laven­der and rose gar­dens are the place to be in the warmer months.
