With Art Deco glamour and doormen in traditional Highland dress, this heritage-listed hotel is the grand old lady of Canberra. The Hyatt sits in the shadow of Parliament House, with parkland and Lake Burley Griffin as a peaceful backdrop. Rooms are muted and modern but the setting is pure old world. Have a sumptuous afternoon spread of cakes and cucumber sandwiches in the Tea Lounge, sip pre-dinner drinks in a deep-cushioned armchair at the Speaker’s Corner Bar, or just read in the classical rose gardens. And be on the lookout for visiting politicians and international leaders.
