Canberra’s best hotels and venues were honoured with national accolades at the Australian Hotels Association (AHA) National Awards for Excellence last night.
Hotel Realm, East Hotel and Lucky’s at QT Canberra beat their interstate counterparts to win National AHA Awards – with Hotel Realm winning Australia’s Best Meetings and Events Venue for the third year in a row – at a prestigious ceremony attended by more than 500 people at Jupiter’s Casino on the Gold Coast.
The leading ACT hotels and venues won their respective categories, including:
- Hotel Realm – Best Meetings and Events Venue (Third year in a row)
- East Hotel – Best Suite/Apartment Hotel (Second year in a row)
- Lucky’s at QT Canberra – Best Bar Presentation and Service (Regional).
AHA ACT General Manager Brad Watts applauded these outstanding Canberra hospitality businesses who were a cut above the competition.
“To have three major winners at the National Awards truly highlights the high quality and standard of ACT’s growing licensed hospitality sector – these businesses should feel very proud,” Mr Watts said.
“To have hotels winning Awards for two and three years running is truly an outstanding and remarkable achievement.
“It confirms that the ACT is setting the standard for hospitality excellence across Australia.”
