The hotel is ideally situated on Hay Street in central Perth, within two blocks of the Swan River, the Royal Perth Hospital and the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The airport is an easy 15 minute drive, while a free CBD bus service stops at the hotel door and connects with the city’s major leisure and business precincts. On site, you’ll find Armada Restaurant and Bar, which is open from breakfast until late – it’s a great spot for a business meeting or, in the evening, cocktails and dinner. Luggage storage facilities and a 24/7 reception make early or late arrivals and departures a breeze. The 126 room property also offers a modern gym, conference and wedding facilities and a communal laundry.
The contemporary guest rooms all feature sofas and arm chairs, large bathrooms, hairdryers, and irons with ironing boards. They’re also equipped with free wifi, individually controlled air conditioning, flat screen TVs (with cable) and large work desks. Choose a standard guest room in either king, king with balcony, twin or triple configurations, or opt for an executive suite for a king bed, separate living area, two bathrooms, a microwave and a balcony. Families can request two interconnecting rooms comprising either a queen and two twin beds or a queen bed and a king bed. ‘Grab and go’ food items are available from reception 24/7.
Central Perth is full of fabulous outdoor experiences, many of which are a quick stroll from the hotel. To get your bearings, head for the mighty Kings Park (less than 10 minutes away) and visit the jewel in its crown, the 17ha Botanic Gardens, featuring the elevated Federation Walkway through the tree canopy. Just two blocks from the hotel is the beautiful Queens Gardens, next to the WACA, where you can relax by a scenic lake full of water lilies. Newly developed Elizabeth Quay is also very close. It hosts regular outdoor events and is a great place to jump aboard a river cruise or grab a quick bite to eat. The streets surrounding the hotel are full of food and drink hotspots – visit C Restaurant in the Sky for breathtaking views over the city from a revolving dining room, or stop at the Heritage listed Grosvenor Hotel for upscale pub grub with the locals. Call in at trendy Wolf Lane for inventive cocktails and old world decor, or try Choo Choo’s for live music and craft beer.
