At barely 15 minutes walk to the door of Parliament House, Hotel Realm’s sense of power is in more than its name. Like a good wool suit, it’s classic, comfortable and formal enough for all occasions. The rooms are sparingly decorated in shades of beige and taupe – with deliciously fine sheets on the big, plush beds.

Inside, you’ll find everything you need to get yourself ready for a visit to the halls of influence – coffee pods, plenty of hanging space and free Wi-Fi. Stay in a suite, penthouse or two-bedroom residence and you’ll also get a spa bath to warm up in after a long day.

A room at Realm will also give you access to the excellent facilities at Hale Gym and Spa, to keep you fighting fit (or chill you out), and to the onsite Evo Health Club – which has a 25 metre heated lap pool. Realm is one of the rare Canberra properties to offer 24 hour room service, as well as playing host to onsite bistro and wine bar Buvette, and Canberra dining institution Chairman and Yip.

Perhaps the best thing about a stay at Realm is the elevator eavesdropping. This hotel isn’t just close to Parliament – it’s also just around the corner from PricewaterhouseCoopers, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Press Club. So you can be sure your fellow guests mean business.
