Kingston's East Hotel has cultivated a neat culture of inclusiveness at its establishment since opening in 2012, becoming the go-to spot in Canberra for visitors wanting family-friendly accommodation without skimping on the unique, upscale feel of a designer hotel. Combining a hotel setting and services with large serviced apartments, the East family packages feature adjoining kids cubbies with bunks, colourful kid-sized furniture, an assortment of endlessly playable toys and board games and an in-room Xbox as the cherry on top.
The attention to family comfort is a pleasant change from the routine of fold outs and porta-cots that often deter families from frequent interstate travel. Indeed, bunk beds, an Xbox and popcorn on arrival would probably satisfy most "grown ups" for a weekend away.
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in Canberra, Kingston’s gone through a serious revitalisation with the development of the Kingston Foreshore and its hub of cafes, bars and restaurants. Public transport buses run throughout the suburb to most corners of Canberra.
