Hotel Hotel, Canberra

There's nary a detail or fitting in Hotel Hotel that hasn't been considered at length, laboured over and placed with intent. Four years in the making, Hotel Hotel in Canberra's dishy Nishi building has opened with the longest list of credits we've seen in the industry - to 56 artists, designers, craftspeople and curators who salvaged oak beds, rendered walls in clay, conjured artworks and handmade furniture. The chandeliers, for example, don't just shed light - they express the migration paths of bogong moths and owls; some of architect Walter Burley Griffin's landmark ideas are reinterpreted in couches and tables. The artisanal focus extends throughout the hotel's 68 rooms and 31 apartments, its lobby, library, bar and courtyard. The kitchen, headed by Sean McConnell, of Mocan & Green Grout, is on light duties and still in development. Rooms from $285. NewActon Nishi, 25 Edinburgh Ave, Canberra, (02) 6287 6287.
