COMO The Treasury

COMO The Treasury is the height of elegance in the heart of the CBD. 

It’s one of the most exclusive stays around town, and worth every penny in our opinion. It occupies space in the highly-regarded State Buildings, whose lavish dining scene you may be already acquainted with — Long Chim, one of Perth’s best Italian restaurants, Post, or fine dining leaders, Wildflower

Making use of its surroundings, the hotel integrates 19th-century features with a modern take to give off a kind of old-school luxury charm.

All of the rooms are exquisitely spacious, and a soak in the bath with COMO Shambala bath salts will have you unwinding in no time. 

Samphire Rottnest

If you’re willing to foot the bill, Samphire is Rottnest’s best luxury accommodation, offering dreamy ocean vistas of Thomson Bay and only a short walk from the main jetty.

Their signature restaurant, Lontara, is fantastic and offers a menu inspired by the flavours of Asia’s south east archipelagos.

And for a little treat, say yes to in-room massage and beauty treatments. 

QT Perth

QT Perth has a different look and feel to your usual crisp white hotel staycay, leaning more into the boutique and quirky side of things, while still maintaining a mood of glamour. 

The rooms are textured with purples and golds, featuring fun wallpaper, jarrah timber flooring, polished brass accents, and a very inviting black marble bathroom with a deep free-standing bath as the centrepiece. 

If you do stay, you’ll have to take your night up to Rooftop at QT — skyline views, dazzling lights, and a menu of carefully selected cocktail creations like the Yuzu Daisuki or Bearded Duchess, which is a savoury twist on a classic dry martini.

The Westin

This upscale hotel is just a short walk from all the major attractions around the CBD, and it features a unique infinity-edged rooftop pool area. 

The rooms are a reflection of its 5-star standing with crisp whites and sophisticated modern luxury. And the cloud-like bed will make sure your sleep is of only the best quality. You’ll also be able to get your rest and relaxation at the Bodhi spa or 24-hour fitness centre. Then fill up on drool-worthy Italian cuisine from the award-winning Garum by Guy Grossi.

The Ritz-Carlton

There is nothing quite so wow factor as stepping into the lobby of The Ritz-Carlton. And that jaw drop stays all the way up to the luxuriously appointed rooms. 

You’ll have sweeping views over the Swan River and city from your large, comfortable bed, and find all the five-star amenities expected from the world-renowned hotel brand.

A stay here is particularly popular with couples. So if you have an anniversary coming up, it could be the perfect excuse for a romantic getaway. 

Dining-wise, you can find some absolutely deluxe cocktails at Hearth. Or head up a few levels to Songbird Bar on selected days for more creative concoctions and glamorous skyline views. 

Alex Hotel

Alex Hotel is the premium hotel in Northbridge and leans more towards those who enjoy the more casual pleasures of eating, drinking, and the arts. 

Though the boutique space isn’t as luxurious as other hotels mentioned, it has a homely, cool kind of vibe that suits those looking for less of the glitz and more of the urban lifestyle. The rooms are cute and practical, and the living space acts as a communal area to grab a cuppa or sit back with a glass of wine. 

You can also find one of our fave Perth wine bars on site — Shadow Wine Bar, serving up only the best local and European drops alongside a menu of modern dishes made with fresh WA produce.

Crown Towers

Yes, a stay at Crown Towers in Perth is very cliché, but if you haven’t booked a little staycay here, are you even a local?

There’s a reason this is Perth’s premier destination for a luxe getaway, and the alluring rooms are just the beginning. It’s more about what you can do here, including lounging around by the pool, cocktails at The Waiting Room, and feasting on buffet cuisine at Epicurean. Not to mention sinking into spa relaxation, fine dining at destinations like Rockpool or Nobu, or catching a theatre show.

InterContinental Perth

Location is a huge seller for InterContinental Perth City Centre. It’s merely 600 metres from Elizabeth Quay and right in the heart of the CBD. 

Rooms here have an understated sophistication while dining options are plentiful, ranging from on-site restaurants Heno & Rey, serving up tapas and homemade sangria, and Ascua, Perth’s best Spanish grill, to places like Meat and Wine Co, Heritage Wine Bar, or Shafto Lane eats just nearby. 

Parmelia Hilton

Parmelia Hilton had quite the facelift not too long ago with a few million dollars spent on a renovation. And it certainly shines through during a stay! 

The interior of the suites is an old-style meets modern chic. Think marble stone benchtops, dim lighting, and dark wood furnishing. Paired with a simple palette of brown, grey, beige, and a pop of burgundy. And if you’re keen to splurge on your Perth staycay, we’d definitely recommend opting for the King Premier Suite.

A stay here also has to be accompanied by a visit to the on-site restaurant, Samuel On Mills. Inspired modern cuisine makes the most of local Western Australian produce in thoughtful dishes, and the space is warm and intimate. 

Aloft Perth

A true home away from home experience, Aloft Perth is suited for a summertime staycay or a quick weekend getaway. 

The space is both modern and funky, and on entry to your room, you’ll be greeted with a very retro-inspired mural covering the walkway wall. If you get the right room, you’ll get views out over the river and rolling hills. And it’s very easy to sink into the plush king after a day of activities. 

Cocktails and smooth music can be found at the W XYZ Bar downstairs. While Springs Kitchen can service you all day with signature Australian dishes and a buffet breakfast bar. It’s also near Optus Stadium and Crown, so entertainment won’t be too hard to source. 


Tribe is located near Kings Park, just a few steps from the riverfront and fitted with a hip and modern look. 

The design is quite innovative and alternative, brought to life by leading designers with pops of colour throughout. The rooms are very simple, playing host to everything you need for a peaceful stay and nothing more. 

When you get peckish, there’s a mix of casual dining spaces, boutique breakfast, long lounges, and a few of Perth’s best restaurants right on your doorstep.
