Got someone you want to impress? COMO: The Treasury will do the trick. A stunning refurb of Perth’s old treasury buildings, COMO combines indulgent modern luxury with old-world heritage charm. It’s a dream pick for romantic getaways and special occasions.
If you want to do Perth #likeaboss, you’ve got to check out the Pan Pacific. Just a five-minute stroll from Elizabeth Quay (and some of Perth’s most awesome restaurants and bars), it’s an elegant choice for business travellers or anyone who wants to add a little extra class to their Perth getaway. We recommend the Club Suite, 1 King Bed, River View for amazing sunset views.
Stress? What stress? With its full-service spa and chilled-out location, the Richardson Hotel & Spa will soon make you forget the meaning of the word (and we’re not going to remind you). If you’re traveling with kiddos, check out the Deluxe Room, 2 Bedrooms, Balcony. With space for up to four guests and from around $400 per night, it’s family-sized luxury that won’t break the bank.

Funky and modern, Tribe Perth offers seriously cool digs and a brilliant brekkie just a short stroll from Subiaco’s awesome shops, markets, and cafes.

Huge modern rooms, cool street-art murals, and a sparkling rooftop pool, all within dawdling distance of the Swan River? Sign us up! With easy access to the Crown Casino and some of Perth’s best restaurants and bars (not to mention a family-friendly games room on site), Aloft Perth is perfect for exciting weekend getaways.
Spacious rooms – check. Awesome CBD location – check. Stays from around 200 bucks per night – check and mate. Peppers Kings Square Hotel is an all-round winner, and just a 10-minute walk from Perth Arena and His Majesty’s Theatre. All rooms come with free wi-fi too – bonus!

Quest Mounts Bay Road is one of Perth’s best hotel secrets, and we’re about to blab. Each of its apartments – even the studios – has a full kitchen and bathroom, making them perfect for families and longer stays. Just two minutes from Kings Park and with rooms for less than $200 per night, you can’t go wrong.
If you’re unlucky enough to get bad weather during your trip (and you’d have to be pretty unlucky – Perth is the world’s sunniest capital), Mantra on Hay has got you covered, with an awesome indoor pool and gym area. Its comfy hotel rooms and spacious modern apartments (with full kitchens), all in the heart of East Perth, aren’t too bad either 😉
Want to make the most of that glorious Perth sunshine? Ditch the CBD and head to Rendezvous for a stay at Perth’s iconic Scarborough Beach. Book an Ocean View room for epic sunset views, and make sure you take a dip in the tempting lagoon-style pool. If you can drag yourself away from the beach, that is.
