In 1924 ‘Hostel Canberra’ opened its doors and became a hub for parliamentarians and distinguished visitors, creating an enduring bond with the Canberra community. Today the original hotel section is heritage listed and has been faithfully restored to its former Art Deco grace and charm, complemented by Hyatt’s 5-star service and modern technologies.
Hyatt Hotel Canberra – A Park Hyatt Hotel is surrounded by hectares of landscaped gardens on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, in the heart of Australia’s diplomatic enclave and only minutes from the city centre and within a short stroll to Canberra’s award winning galleries and attractions.
The low-rise hotel with outdoor courtyards and sun filled verandas retains the serene and inviting atmosphere of a country estate. The building is registered by the Australian Heritage Commission and is renowned as an Art Deco masterpiece.
The hotel continues to redefine the term luxury with the newly appointed Park Deluxe Rooms located in the hotel’s original 1920s’ heritage-listed section, adding impeccably stylish decor and advanced functionality that will engulf you in luxury and comfort.
Taking inspiration from the unique heritage and history of the hotel, which dates from the inter-war striped classical style of building with Art Deco influences, designers researched furniture styles and custom carpet patterns from that period, and reinterpreted them in a modern context.
Its restaurant, bar and the delightful 1920’s style Tea Lounge provide a range of casual dining options, while The Clubhouse Fitness Centre offers a fully equipped gymnasium, cardio-theatre, sauna, spa, indoor heated pool and massage room along with bike hire and floodlit tennis court for guests to enjoy.
Ambassador Lounge is an exclusive area of the hotel available for Club Room guests who desire enhanced, personalised service. Guests have the benefit of using the Ambassador Lounge at their leisure. With a dedicated Club Manager on hand in the morning and evening, a personalised stay is guaranteed.
