Where is the best place to stay during DESIGN Canberra?

Our exclusive hotel partner, A by Adina, looks forward to welcoming DESIGN Canberra VIPs and festival audiences to the hotel.

Located at Constitution Place, A by Adina Canberra is perched on the doorstep of the famed Parliamentary Triangle at Lake Burley Griffin, in the heart of Canberra’s CBD.

In a sustainable yet unique sculptural design by award-winning architects Bates Smart, this urban oasis offers a perfectly suited balance between a hotel and a private apartment.

Studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments offer thoughtful, contemporary Australian design features with exclusive Dreamcatcher beds by SleepMaker, complimentary in-room movies and Hunter Lab bathroom amenities.  Team members are known as Curators, ready to assist with any requests to enhance your stay. For those guests who wish to take their stay to the next level, Destination A rooms are located on the top floor of the hotel with iconic city views and complimentary drinks at The Daily Pause, a fresh take on evening drinks in the lobby.

For alternative options, we recommend visiting for a wealth of information on Canberra’s accommodation offerings, and to find out what else is on offer in Canberra for you to enjoy during your visit.
