Marriott International has completed its goal of returning the Ritz-Carlton brand to Australia, with the marque formally opening its 100th location in Perth this morning.
The 205 rooms and suites of Ritz-Carlton Perth are five years in the making and feature as part of a sparkling new development at Elizabeth Quay in Perth’s CBD. Overlooking Kings Park and the Swan River, the hotel’s accommodations are capped off by the 277-square metre Ritz-Carlton Suite which offers separate sleeping, living and entertainment areas with floor-to-ceiling windows maximizing the views.
Guest facilities include multiple food and beverage outlets, led by the hotel’s signature restaurant Hearth which offers new interpretations of classic Australian BBQ fare. This venue is backed by Songbird, which is tipped to become one of Perth’s hot new cocktail, craft beer and wine bars.
Further facilities include the Ritz-Carlton Spa and its four treatment rooms along with 2,000 square metres of conference and event space including the Elizabeth Quay Ballroom, which can be divided up into three separate spaces if desired.
Ritz-Carlton Global Brand Leader, Lisa Holladay, said she was very excited at having brought the service and luxury of the brand back to Australia.
“Perth as a destination has so much to offer the luxury traveller, from its stunning landscapes to its superior produce and wine. Our Ladies and Gentlemen at The Ritz-Carlton, Perth are looking forward to providing guests with enriching experiences that are deeply engrained in the local culture and destination and which will create unforgettable memories.”
