With WA’s borders almost totally relaxed to the rest of the country, the timing couldn’t be better for the latest edition to Perth’s bubbling hotel scene to emerge, and this week saw the opening of the new DoubleTree By Hilton Waterfront.
As of December 15 it’s now open for business, offering a stunning stay right on the Elizabeth Quay waterfront with 18 floors and 229 rooms, each with views of either the city or the river.
It’s got nine different room types, including King and Twin Deluxe Panoramic River View rooms, and features an outdoor pool and lounge terrace on level 5.
This is in addition for a 24-hour fitness centre with river views and an awesome rooftop bar – 18 knots.
Foodies will also be well catered for thanks to the Reel Kitchen, also featuring uninterrupted river views and a menu focused on fresh local produce, fresh seafood and a vast selection of WA wines.
Both Reel Kitchen and 18 Knots will be curated by Head Chef Mohammed Musaddiq, who said, “I am excited to work closely with local farmers here in WA to bring my vision to reality. I want to showcase the importance of understanding life cycles within the food chain and to promote sustainable practises, whilst supporting local businesses.”
He’ll be joined by French-born Bar Manager Jordan de Hullessen, who grew up in the southern region near wineries and the Mediterranean Sea, but has called Perth home for the past 8 years:
“From a very young age I had a passion for the hospitality industry, I appreciated wine before milk. I have a passion to create a wow factor and making cocktails is an excellent opportunity to
explore my creativity. My favourite cocktails are layered cocktails, it creates attention and once mixed, reveals its true nature.”
Just in time for the silly season, there’ll be a Christmas Day Buffet lunch in the Reel Kitchen, along with a huge NYE rooftop party at 18 Knots.
