Canberra tourism boost with new airport hotel

A new Vibe hotel at the airport in the city could help to boost tourism in the city.

Canberra Airport will soon be home to a new hotel, after Toga Far East Hotels was given the go-ahead to build the new Vibe facility at the transport hub.

This will come as further good news for the city's tourism sector, after it was recently revealed that officials are planning to offer international travel for the first time with flights to and from Asia.

The new Vibe hotel will be situated just 150 metres from the entrance to the airport's terminal, and when it is opened in October 2015 it will bring with it a range of new facilities.

As well as the 191 rooms on offer at the hotel, guests will be treated to an atrium complete with restaurants and bars, a reception area, while it will also house a conference space for business travellers.

Although mainly aimed at corporate travellers, the hotel will also offer tourists fantastic views of the city from Lake Burley Griffin to Parliament House.

Rachel Argaman, chief executive officer of Toga Far East, said: "We are honoured to have been selected to operate the hotel in such a prominent position in the nation’s capital. The location will service travellers using the beautiful new airport, as well as the surrounding business parks and defence precincts."
