Some may say our Nation’s Capital has little drawcards.  The new East Hotel, nestled in the grooviest quarter of Canberra stylishly refutes such a claim. Turning away from the dreary neutral tones of hotels of times past, the East Hotel drowns itself in contemporary styling, artfully pieced by Sydney’s Sally Hieatt (Sally Hieatt Interiors). The East Hotel is a dense fusion of shape and colour, the lobby being the perfect platform to showcase product from Spain’s design gurus Sancal.  Littering the floor is the Folk Sofa, Tea Lounge, Soul Lounge Chair and Rock Tables (many of which GECA Certified) and Axona Aichi's Tipo Chairs in the meeting room. With such good design available, perhaps now there’s no better reason to head to the Capital.
