The Tasman in Hobart now accepting bookings for December, according to the local paper. Got some spare change for $5,000/night?

Luxury Collection Hotels are part of Marriott International and prices start at around $400 a night for a standard room. A presidential Aurora Suite will set you back $5000 a night.

The Tasman, in Hobart’s parliament Square, is in a high tourist traffic area - just steps from the famous Salamanca Markets, St David’s Park and the vibrant waterfront of Sullivan’s Cove.

It offers 152 rooms which include original artworks from local artists, fireplaces and island baths.

The Stamford Plaza by the SYD domestic airport does an excellent job of keeping the aircraft noise out. In fact, you can't really hear them from a room facing the airport and that's an older building. So I'm sure if they want to solve the problem, it won't be an issue.

The Tasman in Hobart opening Dec 17. Well booked over the Christmas - New Year period (they say).

From The Mercury:

Guests will be able to experience three distinct eras of design within the 152-room hotel, including the original 1840s heritage building, an Art Deco building dating back to the 1940s and a contemporary pavilion building.

The Tasman will also feature three dining concepts, including signature restaurant Peppina created by renowned Tasmanian chef Massimo Mele, a coughtail bar and spirits library known as Mary Mary, and the Deco Lounge for light lunches and afternoon teas.


Heritage-style rooms

TIP for anyone staying at the Tasman. Unless you like spluging on breakfast, don't bother having Marriott breakfast which I'm guessing will go for at least $50. Go to Daci & Daci Bakers cafe immediately over the road. Lovely place, much like a French patisserie but a full cafe.

W Sydney could get caught up in the Probuild collapse. From the Australian yesterday. Also at risk is Ritz Melbourne and likely a few others.

The Ribbon: A $1bn accommodation and entertainment complex designed by Hassell on the eastern edge of Darling Harbour in Sydney. It includes the W Sydney hotel across 25 floors and a new IMAX Theatre featuring the world’s biggest screen. The project was close to completion.
