For the second consecutive year, EAST Hotel has won Best Suite/Apartment Hotel (Accommodation Division) at the 2013 AHA ACT Hospitality Awards.
EAST Hotel has established itself as Canberra’s premier four and a half star design and lifestyle hotel. With its focus on providing a memorable Canberra experience and its premium location between the fashionable retail and restaurant hubs of Manuka and Kingston, EAST Hotel ups the ante for local guests and visitors to the nation’s capital.
“As we approach the end of our second year, it is extremely gratifying to be recognised for this award with the AHA,” said Dan Bisa, owner of EAST Hotel and Director of Bisa Hotels. “EAST is now an established and dynamic addition to the ever growing hotel scene in Canberra, and we are thrilled to see the continued growth of EAST and the ongoing loyalty and positive feedback we receive from our many loyal clients.”
The 2014 Australian Hotels Association (AHA) ACT Branch Hospitality Awards were held at QT Canberra on Monday, July 21. Industry leaders, sponsors and local identities applauded more than 35 sponsored Awards rewarding the outstanding achievements of businesses and employees. The Awards were hosted by Sky News Political Reporter David Lipson.
East Hotel provides a contemporary, cool and vibrant option for visitors to Canberra, whether overnighters, business guests, long stay guests or families. The six-story hotel has 140 rooms in various studio and apartment-style combinations, recognizing the challenges families can face with hotel accommodation by providing specially designated suites, cleverly designed in a modular, fun way specifically to cater for both adults and kids. The hotel has standalone dining and bar facilities, with Ox Eatery and its associated Bar and Delicatessen having become an instant classic.
Within its first year of operation, East Hotel won four local awards and a national award as Best Suite/Apartment Hotel at the 2013 Australian Hotels Association (AHA) National Awards for Excellence, which recognizes hotels and restaurants that demonstrate outstanding services, accommodation, entertainment, food and beverage.
