Brought to you by InterContinental Perth City Centre.
The heart of Perth beats at two frequencies. There’s the bustling CBD with its myriad shops and eateries, and there’s the tranquil oasis of the InterContinental Perth City Centre.
Perfectly suited to discerning travellers seeking an experience that’s quintessentially Perth, every detail of the InterContinental Perth City Centre has been carefully planned, from the impressive foyer showcasing hanging art and sculptures to the elegant guest rooms designed to feel like your own private sanctuary.
There are 240 rooms decorated in a muted palette of velvety mushroom grey, gold and silver. Picture windows provide expansive views of the city, glittering Swan River and glimpses of Kings Park.
Nestled in the charming King Street precinct, buzzing bars, restaurants and the newly opened Elizabeth Quay are at your doorstep, but guests need to travel no further than downstairs to experience Perth’s best dining.
The hotel boasts three Spanish-inspired eateries and a bar that will cater to your every fancy. At Graffiti, locally roasted coffee and burnished Portuguese tarts are irresistible, or you can opt for speedy breakfast items such as savoury chorizo and comté cheese muffins or barbacoa buns, the Mexican answer to a bacon and egg roll.
At Heno & Rey, sangria is on tap and the menu brings Spanish small plate dining to life with local produce. There are dishes of crispy squid, traditional tapas such as Patatas Bravas (crisp fried potatoes with a garlicky tomato and paprika sauce) and an incredible range of chorizo and jamón.
Dinner at Ascua is a more sophisticated affair featuring a large wood-fire grill and a thoughtful menu of lighter seafood dishes such as delicately combined octopus and tiger prawns or more substantial fare, where dishes such as Beef Tomahawk take centre-stage. For after-dinner drinks, simply ascend the staircase to Loft Lounge and Bar and watch the world go by.
If the InterContinental Perth City Centre is a luxurious haven, the inner circle is Club InterContinental. Members have access to the hotel’s exquisite lounge on level 16, complete with light dining and drinks.
The urge to cocoon in the pleasures of the InterContinental Perth City Centre will be strong, but don’t forget the hotel is footsteps from Perth’s best attractions. Take a twilight stroll by the river, enjoy a spot of shopping or catch a show at His Majesty’s Theatre.
