IHG’s Holiday Inn brand readies to call West Perth home

West Perth’s trendy Hay Street will soon be home to one of IHG’s fastest-growing hotel brands, with Sage Hotel West Perth to be rebadged as Holiday Inn West Perth on 1 November.

With West Perth fast becoming a vibrant, bustling hub just out of Perth’s CBD, the hotel promises to take advantage of its locale and deliver on a warm and welcoming experience for guests staying for business or pleasure.

Located within walking distance to Kings Park and the Botanical Gardens, Holiday Inn West Perth will be IHG’s first Perth property outside of the city centre, and will complement its CBD hotels including InterContinental Perth City Centre, Crowne Plaza Perth and Holiday Inn Perth City Centre.

Part of the hotel’s charm is the former 1902 Walsh Family residence, which sits at the front of the property, and a destination restaurant is slated to be a hallmark of Holiday Inn West Perth, as will the two character-filled boardrooms that currently occupy the space.

When the hotel opens under the Holiday Inn banner in November, all of its 101 guestrooms will receive a soft refurbishment to bring it in line with the brand’s standard, and the lobby will also be transformed.

Jael Fischer, director of development for IHG across Australasia and the Pacific, said the hotel will be a welcome addition to the hospitality giant’s expanding Holiday Inn portfolio.

“We are thrilled to be growing our presence in Perth and to be working with new owners, Australian Development Capital,” she said.

“With construction beginning on the new parliamentary precinct in West Perth and with many businesses and retail along busy Hay and Collins Street, there is a hive of activity in the area which Holiday Inn will be able to capitalise on.

“Given the hotel’s prime location, close to Kings Park, one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner-city parks, Holiday Inn West Perth will be warmly embraced by IHG Rewards loyalty members. We look forward to welcoming guests from 1 November.”

Rod Hamersley, executive director at Australian Development Capital, said: “We are really excited to be working with the IHG team and looking forward to seeing the hotel being transformed and reinvigorated under the Holiday Inn banner.

“We are delighted that our hotel is joining IHG’s growing network in Australia.”

The hotel operator selection process was run by Aaron Desange from CBRE Hotels.

Holiday Inn West Perth will join the 42 open or pipelined Holiday Inn hotels in Australasia and the Pacific.
