“It’s great to be back in Australia after five years in Bali and leading the team that will open the first Westin hotel in Perth,” he said.
“The Westin Perth will play an integral role in the revival of the city’s east end, offering visitors access to the brand’s health and well-being programming that ensures guests leave feeling better than when they arrived.”

From there, Brampton transferred to Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa as General Manager, before being promoted in 2009 to Cluster General Manager of Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa and the Courtyard by Marriott Surfers Paradise Resort.

As General Manager, Brampton will report into Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand & Pacific at Marriott International.
“Peter’s extensive experience as a General Manager and proven track record successfully opening new hotels will play a vital role in the successful launch of The Westin Perth,” Hunt said. “His strong leadership skills, creativity and ingenuity put Peter in a good position to open the first Westin hotel in Western Australia.”
