Abode to open new hotel in Canberra this September

A new 152-room Abode hotel is on track to open in September this year in Canberra’s north-west.

Abode Belconnen will be the eighth property within the Abode Hotels portfolio, and 10th hotel overall for Iconic Hotels by Geocon.

While the hotel industry in general reported record lows across the past three months of the pandemic, Iconic Hotels remains positive about the future.

“The future remains strong for Iconic Hotels, with the development of more hotels and landmark destinations still very much in the pipeline,” said Rien Donkin, general manager of Iconic Hotels.

“The impending opening of Abode Belconnen marks the first of many exciting milestones scheduled for the years to come.”

The hotel is part of Geocon’s Republic development, a mixed-use precinct set to home more than 3000 residents, food and beverage venues, lifestyle shops and commercial spaces. Guests will also have access to signature onsite restaurant, No.10 Restaurant + Bar.
