The best new hotels in Perth
As luck would have it, Perth is now home to some seriously innovative and stylish hotels, all putting their own individual twist on the traditional hotel stay. So if you’re looking to treat yourself to a CBD staycation, here are some of the best new hotels in Perth.
QT is a little dose of luxury in the heart of Perth, making it the perfect spot for those looking to treat themselves. The rooms and living spaces are exquisitely designed – think lots of jarrah timber, rich velvet and polished brass – giving the place a lavish and extravagant vibe. QT also happens to be home to Perth’s most stylish bar, Rooftop at QT. Perched above the CBD, this industrial luxe bar offers expertly crafted cocktails, carefully selected wines and craft beers with the stunning skyline and river as the backdrop. The complimentary pilates classes that are available on request for guests is the cherry on top of what is a truly lavish and decadent experience.
Tribe, West Perth
Imagine a hotel that gave you a free drink in its stylish bar every day you stay, and had a standard late check-out time of 12pm. Welcome to Tribe. This new hotel, situated on the doorsteps of Kings Park, has been created by some of Australia’s leading designers who wanted accommodation with personality, social atmosphere and communal space – basically, a hotel like a home. Tribe’s large and sophisticated living zones provide the perfect place to kick back with friends, and its restaurant features a carefully curated menu with a focus on sustainability and ethical eating. If an uber-stylish experience is what you’re after, this is it.
The Westin, PerthIf you want a wellness getaway then look no further than the newly-renovated Westin. The hotel boasts its own Bodhi J Day Spa where you can unwind with a luxury treatment, an infinity pool to rejuvenate in the sunshine, and a state of the art fitness studio with TRX equipment. Left your workout gear at home? That’s not a problem either, because The Westin has its own workout gear lending program with New Balance. And when its time to refuel your body, head to the venue’s signature restaurant, Garum. This Roman osteria is a collaboration between The Westin Perth and chef Guy Grossi, and is housed in the historic Hibernian Hall, with the menu focusing on ancient Roman techniques and modern classics.
Alex Hotel, Northbridge
Alex Hotel has been designed with the belief that a hotel should be like a home – so while you do have all the privacy you want in your own room, you can also sprawl out in their many shared living areas. Their rooftop garden is an oasis above the city where you can unwind with a drink, or if curling up in an armchair with a good read is more your thing, head to the communal lounge room with its well-stocked bookshelf. The sense of community extends well beyond the walls of the hotel, though – every second Thursday is Alex Run Club, where guests congregate for an early morning jog, and Wednesdays and Sundays see the tranquil rooftop transformed into a yoga space, with Alex’s resident yoga teacher running morning classes for guests.
DoubleTree by Hilton, PerthRight in the middle of Perth’s cultural and entertainment hub of Northbridge, and a short walk to places like Elizabeth Quay, Yagan Square and RAC Arena, Double Tree is the ideal spot for those wanting to explore everything Perth has to offer. But once you’re done adventuring and retreat back to your hotel, there are loads of relaxation options that await you. Head to Double Tree’s tranquil outdoor pool, visit the 24/7 fitness centre, or enjoy a drink at the hotel’s own James St Bar + Kitchen – a modern take on the classic Australian pub, with polished concrete, an open kitchen and industrial-chic vibes.
