My wife and I had a night at East for our date night :-) we found the room spacious and relaxing, checkin went smoothly, and really liked the design and decor in reception. The massive slideshow next to the reception desk is pretty cool.
Dinner at Ox, the restaurant in the hotel was beautiful. The selection of drinks was ok but I knew they had just opened and was advised it would grow rapidly.
That said, breakfast was our favorite meal. The pastries are probably the best we've had in Canberra. Even if you are not planning on staying there, duck in one morning and grab a pastry. You won't regret it.
Overall we had a great stay. the only thing we needed that wasn't working was the ATM. I just popped across the road to the Kingo to get some cash so no big deal.
I can see how East Hotel would also be a great place to stay for business travelers. The location is really central, and walking distance to quite a few Agencies.
