East Hotel has won Best Suite/Apartment Hotel in Australia at the Australian Hotels Association (AHA) 2016 National Awards for Excellence. The winners from each category were applauded by hotel industry leaders, hoteliers, special guests and parliamentarians who attended the special evening at RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast to celebrate all aspects of Australia’s vibrant hotel and hospitality sector.
“The fact that we have won this award for the third time within our four years of existence speaks volumes of our well-thought-out physical product and even more of the experience aspect provided by my entire team at East,” said General Manager Todd Handy. “We have a proud team that truly believes in how they all contribute to the guest experience, our place within the local community and our importance as ambassadors of the Canberra Region. With new hotels constantly opening up within Canberra and around Australia, it truly is an honour to be recognised with this Award and I know the team will be aiming to take it out again next year.”
Since opening in August 2012, East Hotel has established itself as Canberra’s premier four and a half star design and lifestyle, apartment hotel. Located between the fashionable boutique shopping and restaurant hubs of Manuka and Kingston, minutes from the Parliamentary triangle and notable national attractions, East Hotel is focused on providing its guests with a memorable Canberra experience, far beyond their expectations. As the leader in ‘new design’ hotels in Canberra, East Hotel is proud to showcase the nation’s capital, facilitating a whole new perspective for its guests.
