New luxury hotel for Canberra as part of $200m city precinct

A new luxury hotel will open in Canberra later this year as part of developer Geocon’s $200 million development in Braddon.

Midnight Hotel will be the eighth hotel for independent hotel operator Iconic Hotels, which is Geocon’s hotels division.

The hotel will feature 199 rooms, a restaurant, bar, indoor swimming pool, wellness centre, conference and event spaces and guest lounge.

Iconic Hotels general manager Rien Donkin said Midnight Hotel offers a point of difference for the travellers coming to Canberra.

“The hotel celebrates a lifestyle philosophy, focused on providing guests and locals with unique experiences that are memorable and authentic,” Donkin said.

“Midnight Hotel is a natural progression for Iconic Hotels, and a brand which further complements our existing portfolio.”

Designed by Australian architect firm Fender Katsalidis, Midnight Hotel is on track to welcome its first guests in September.
