Our favourite rooms
Perth’s motley mix of 19th-century art deco buildings and sleek skyscrapers can best be admired from X-Large Room 602, which has a corner balcony, a glass wall in the bathroom and a window by the the bed (pillow fight your partner to see who gets to sleep on that side). X-Large Room 515 is the biggest in the hotel, and it has a balcony for sunset watching.
Comfy trainers for biking, and a stash of Tim Tams for when you feel peckish and don’t want to leave your room.
The hotel has a lift, and all common areas are wheelchair accessible. Four rooms (a little larger than the Medium rooms) have been adapted for guests with mobility issues.
This is a Smith-about-town kind of place, so best suited for older kids. Eight sets of Small, Large and X-Large rooms on each floor interconnect to form mini two-bedroom apartments. Cots for under-2s can be added to rooms free.
