IHG Hotels and Resorts will open its second hotel under the Holiday Inn brand in Perth after signing a new management agreement for a 101-room property situated just outside the city CBD.
Holiday Inn West Perth will intersect the city’s trendy Hay and Collins Streets and will see the brand take over the former Sage Hotel West Perth, with the rebrand to take effect from 1 November 2021. The new hotel will bolster IHG’s portfolio in the Western Australia capital, joining InterContinental Perth, Crowne Plaza Perth and Holiday Inn Perth City Centre.
A soft refurbishment will be carried out on the hotel prior to its reopening as Holiday Inn next month. The hotel will become the 42nd Holiday Inn hotel either open or in the pipeline in the Australasia and Pacific region.
The hotel is a short walk from King’s Park and the Botanical Gardens – two of Perth’s most popular attractions – and close to restaurants, entertainment and the Swan River.
The history of the property is characterised by the historic Walsh Family Residence from 1902 which sits in front of the hotel. A destination restaurant on site which doubles as conference and event space will also comprise the guest facilities.
IHG Director of Development Australasia and Pacific, Jael Fischer, said she was looking forward to the new hotel welcoming guests from 1 November.
“We are thrilled to be growing our presence in Perth and to be working with new owners, Australian Development Capital,” Fischer 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.”
