Map
15 Edinburgh Ave., NewActon, Canberra, New South wales ACT 2601, Australia

As Australia’s capital, Canberra has plenty of clout, but it has never been known for style. The recently opened Diamant adds much-needed panache to the town’s formerly fusty accommodation options. Its Art Deco shell has been dressed up with contemporary panes of glass and zinc; the 80 rooms are quirky and eclectic—riotous wallpaper on the ceilings, mother-of-pearl bathroom tiles—and include 21st-century amenities, like Bang & Olufsen plasma TV’s. In the Parlour Wine Room, you can mingle with the local power brokers who are making this scene their own.
