We chose this hotel because I recently joined the rewards program when booking a stay for Sydney later this year - when we decided to take a quick overnight shopping trip to Canberra I looked to see what Canberra hotels were in the program. We could choose between this one or the QT - which we will try next time,...

Located near Manuka, the hotel is some distance from the city centre. I stayed here some years ago but found it in need of renovation. The good news was that the bathroom had been renovated, but the rest of the room still looked 'tired'. As a Priority Guest I arranged a late check out, only to find a Reception manager...

I booked directly with the hotel and it did not disappoint. The hotel was nice and very open, close to shops and the local sights and not too far from anywhere. The room was very well appointed and modern touches throughout. The WiFi speeds were fast to do video conferencing and was easy to connect throughout the property. The only...

Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Wifi is excellent. On site parking is a challenge. There is only free space available for 8 cars, otherwise you need to park on the side street opposite in the 2 hour zone area Otherwise it's $12/day in the hotel underground car park. Room key cards are extremely sensitive. I had to get mine...
