Hotel Hotel is bringing the cool to Canberra. Set in the Nishi building overlooking Lake Burley Griffin , the hotel comprises 99 rooms, all collaborations between artists and designers. Don’t expect stark white, clinical spaces but rather cosy, textured habitats that celebrate the individual. We settled in on a chilly weekend.
RUSSH loves… The proximity to cafes and restaurants with the precinct offering something for everyone. Oh and its right next to a cinema if a movie is calling you.
What you see… Wood, velvet chairs, concrete walls and worn tan leather. It’s all about the textures.
The drink of choice… Wines in the lobby-located Monster Kitchen and Bar.
Best way to spend the day… Sleep in. Rent a bike and ride around the lake. Head to the National Portrait Gallery. Finish up with dinner and drinks fit for a day of all the best Canberra has to offer.
