Parmelia Hilton Perth gets multi-million-dollar makeover

Parmelia Hilton Perth has undergone a $45 million transformation, with the new-look hotel ready to welcome guests from February.

Among the changes to the property are the addition of 32 rooms and an Executive Lounge, a complete revitalisation of its lobby, and a refurbishment of its restaurant.

The hotel has also introduced touchless technology, a new thoroughfare to the cultural, shopping and dining precinct of Brookfield Place, and new cleanliness and disinfection standards.

Heidi Kunkel, vice president of operations for Australasia at Hilton, said the creation of a thoroughfare to Brookfield Place will directly connect guests to the heart of the CBD.

“Plus, with the introduction of Hilton innovations such as Digital Key and Hilton CleanStay, it will set a new standard for Perth hotel stays.”

“The hotel team are excited to welcome guests back after the 10-month renovation and showcase the hotel’s new features, which includes a grand lobby with locally-inspired design and artwork, reflective of the coastal landscape and cultural heritage that defines Western Australia.”

Digital Key is a feature within the Hilton Honors mobile app that provides loyalty program members the ability to check-in, choose their room and access their room, along with most areas of the hotel, using their smartphone.

Parmelia Hilton Perth is also participating in the Hilton CleanStay Program and Hilton EventReady with CleanStay.

The new standards under Hilton CleanStay include a Hilton CleanStay Room Seal to show that a room has not been accessed since being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, additional cleaning of common areas and items, contactless check-in, innovative disinfection technology, and flexible housekeeping options.

Bookings are available online for stays from 1 February, with opening rates from $225 per night.
