Awards for top Canberra Hotels


Alluxia approved properties East Hotel and Hotel Realm were among the winners toasted at a hospitality awards evening held at Hotel Realm on Monday.

More than 400 people attended the 2013 Australian Hotels Association ACT Branch Hospitality Awards evening, celebrating the theme “100 years of hospitality in Canberra.”

AHA ACT Branch General Manager Brad Watts said several landmark hotels were remembered during the gala dinner including the Hyatt Hotel Canberra, which took out the Best Deluxe Accommodation.  “From heritage hotels like Hyatt Canberra to innovative new accommodation properties like Hotel Realm and East Hotels – winners were definitely grinners at the major annual industry event.” Mr Watts said.

Hotel Realm was awarded member of the year, Best Restaurant Service Employee, Best Meetings and Events Hotel and Best Marketed Hotel. 

Newly opened East Hotel took out a host of awards including Best Superior (4.5 star) Accommodation, Best New Venue, Best Apartment Hotel and best Environmental Practice.

The event also highlighted the important contribution and complimentary role of the tourism sector especially from major tourism campaigns involving hotels.  Australian Capital Tourism was recognised for the best tourism initiative with their highly successful Human Brochure social media campaign.  The Australian-first social media campaign involved a range of leading hotels who hosted 250 interstate, social media-savvy Australians for two weekends highlighting the best to see and do in Canberra.
