I live in Canberra and I am super keen for this. It is much needed. When looking for an apartment here a few years ago, I had a last-minute stay at a motel in Queanbeyan for $250/night as parliament was sitting. Canberra/ACT was sold out.

Where in Canberra is the "World Trade Technology Centre"? Ie, where are they proposing to build this hotel?

They haven't publicly said.

I'd honestly be surprised to see this get off the ground, but you never know.
Their name isn't Geocon, so you are probably right!

(Geocon are building shoddy apartment buildings all over Canberra).

As much as I would have liked this to be true, look at their track record in Melbourne (Hilton's, not GeoCon's :) )

Would be nice. I stayed at the Hyatt last time, and an apartment the time before that.

I really like the Hyatt, but lacks food an drink options within close walking distance.

We enjoyed the Hyatt and they gave us a nice room. But as I lack top-tier status, we had to upgrade the room to get lounge access. At Hiltons I get lounge and restaurant breakfast as a Diamond.

Typical dumb decision from the ACT Government. Maybe they will bring back the sky whale and let people sleep inside that instead.

Great news, one of my ongoing gripes is how few Hiltons there are in Australia generally.
