Hyatt Hotel Canberra has to be the most famous Hotel in the Australian Capital Territory, and luckily I got to spend a few nights there during my first ever visit to Canberra. Still, nowadays the charm of the roaring ’20s is still visible and active in parts at this beautiful 5 Star Hotel. Once built and opened back in 1924, under the name of Hostel No.1, it was designated to host politicians when the Federal Parliament moved to Canberra from Melbourne in 1927. Contemporaneous it was named “Hotel Canberra” in the same year. A little interesting side-note is that the Hotel didn’t receive a licence for alcohol as of 1928, with the considered aim of keeping Canberra alcohol-free.
