Opened in 2018, it’s a relative newcomer to the scene and those who choose this four-star property near the CBD will be charmed by its fresh-feel rooms, dazzling city views and rooftop pool. Read on for the full review.
All 206 rooms and suites at this hotel are polished and well-appointed, styled in warm, muted tones with quality furniture, large televisions, high thread-count sheets and sleek bathrooms. That celebrated high-standard Hilton service is here, too — concierge and room service is available 24/7 and the DoubleTree tradition of a warm chocolate-chip cookie at check-in never gets old.

The next question is: to splurge or not to splurge? For the most spectacular views over Perth’s glittering downtown, the Panoramic rooms are the ticket.

Mid-century modern chairs, plants, timber details and the colourfully tiled floor make the dining room a stylish-yet-casual place to hang out.
