The world’s largest luxury hotel chain will open its latest property – InterContinental Perth City Centre – on October 15

‘The King Street Precinct’ sets a charming scene for the 16 storey hotel which will offer 240 guest rooms, studios and suites as well as a sophisticated Club InterContinental, a collection of new dining and bar options plus a meeting suite concept.

Designed by Woods Bagot with interiors conceived by Chada, the InterContinental Perth City Centre will welcome guests with layers of stylish design details and a luxurious, residential feel to the guest rooms. Particular attention has been paid to curating an extensive art collection, with many works commissioned especially for the new hotel from leading West Australian painters, ceramicists, glassblowers and sculptors.

Guests will be able to select from classic, city view or the more generous executive studios and suites. Each offers an elegant light filled space and every amenity from luxe toiletries; generously stocked mini bar featuring local wines and boutique brews to smart TV’s, complimentary wi-fi and round the clock room service. Those staying in Club InterContinental rooms will have the exclusive benefit of the Club InterContinental Lounge – a quiet sanctuary on the hotel’s top floor. Club guests can start the day with a la carte breakfast, enjoy all day refreshments, take an afternoon tea service as well retreat for evening canapés and drinks while looking out at sparkling city views.  An executive meeting room is also available for complimentary use.

The new InterContinental Perth City Centre’s restaurant and bar offerings – with interior design by EDG Design – will bring dynamic eating, drinking and gathering options to the city with local produce and regional wines set to star.

Heno & Rey – a slickly reinterpreted tapas bar spilling out onto Hay and King Streets – is set to be a destination to meet for cocktails by a specially recruited mixologist and enjoy a plate of charcuterie, something from the raw bar or a more generous dish with a glass or two of West Australian wine; Ascua(Spanish for ember) will be a dramatic ground floor restaurant space, complete with striking open kitchen, intimate banquette seating and sommelier service, taking the classic grill to new heights; The Loft Lounge perched on level one will tempt guests with coffee and freshly baked pastries from early morning, an elegant high tea service in the afternoon and worldly classic classic cocktails anytime on the alfresco terrace overlooking century old palms and heritage buildings on King Street. Graffiti is a food truck meets hole in the wall diner, opening for early birds revealing a window into the kitchen of Ascua. Expect locally roasted coffee, gourmet-to-go bites, even test dishes form the hotel’s chefs. Look for the roller door clad with a specially commissioned work by street artist Daek William.

Completing the hotel offer is The Gallery Meeting Suites, providing a reimagined environment for business gatherings, seminars and more intimate events looking for a different approach to functions. Five suites of differing sizes are filled with natural light and flexible configurations to host up to 150 delegates. But it’s the stylish central lounge area which is perfect for break outs, a spacious outdoor terrace equipped with a bar area together with two open plan kitchens to extend live cooking displays and a variety of culinary options that will appeal to discerning meeting planners.

Beyond the hotel’s doorstep on Hay Street, His Majesty’s Theatre (home to the WA Opera, WA Ballet and Perth’s myriad cultural events); luxe retailers from Chanel to Kailis Pearls lining King Street and café filled laneways await, along with Perth’s business hub, city parks and the Swan River ferry options at Elizabeth Quay.

“The hotel will certainly be stylish, our Club InterContinental will be a premium point of distinction and we’re in a vibrant city locale, but it’s the intuitive service our team are looking forward to welcoming guests with,” says General Manager of InterContinental Perth City Centre, Adam McDonald.

Adam, a former Resident Manager of InterContinental in Sydney, and more recently overseeing resorts in Bali and Vietnam for IHG*, has recruited a hotel team equally as passionate about bringing true hospitality and local cultural wisdom to the new Perth property that starts from arrival with a Door Ambassador, to a les Clefs d’or Concierge and a Club InterContinental team.

“We can’t wait to create a truly international hotel for Perth that brings global etiquette to travelling for business or pleasure,” adds Adam.
