IHG’s newest acquisition, the Holiday Inn West Perth will officially rebadge from the Sage Hotel West Perth on November 01.
Located in the inner-city suburb’s trendy Hay Street, Holiday Inn West Perth will be IHG’s first Perth property outside of the CBD and joins the company’s existing hotels including InterContinental Perth City Centre, Crowne Plaza Perth and Holiday Inn Perth City Centre.
Catering to both the business and leisure markets, a feature of the 101-guest room property is the former 1902 Walsh Family residence which sits at the front of the property along with a destination restaurant slated to be a hallmark of Holiday Inn West Perth, and two character-filled boardrooms that currently occupy the space.
When the hotel opens under the Holiday Inn banner in November, all guestrooms will receive a soft refurbishment to bring the property in line with Holiday Inn’s standard while the lobby will also be transformed.
Director, Development for IHG Australasia & Pacific, Jael Fischer, said IHG organisation was thrilled to be growing its presence in Perth and to be working with new owners, Australian Development Capital.
“The hotel will be a welcome addition to our expanding Holiday Inn portfolio,” he 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 November 1”.
Australian Development Capital Executive Director, Rod Hamersley, said the company was 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.”
Holiday Inn West Perth will join the 42 open or pipeline Holiday Inn brand family hotels in Australasia & Pacific.
